Publisher's Summary

Do you know what the hardest thing for a Portuguese learner is?

Finding proper reading material that they can handle…which is precisely the reason we’ve written this book!

Teachers love giving out tough, expert-level literature to their students, books that present many new problems to the reader and force them to search for words in a dictionary every five minutes - it’s not entertaining, useful or motivating for the student at all, and many soon give up on learning at all!

In this book we have compiled 20 easy, compelling, and fun stories that will allow you to expand your vocabulary and give you the tools to improve your grasp of the wonderful Portuguese tongue.

How Portuguese Short Stories for Beginners works:

  • Each story is interesting and entertaining with realistic dialogues and day-to-day situations.
  • The summaries follow a synopsis in Portuguese and in English of what you just read, both to review the lesson and for you to see if you understood what the tale was about.
  • At the end of those summaries, you’ll be provided with a list of the most relevant vocabulary involved in the lesson, as well as slang and sayings that you may not have understood at first glance!
  • Finally, you’ll be provided with a set of tricky questions in Portuguese, providing you with the chance to prove that you learned something in the story. Don’t worry if you don’t know the answer to any - we will provide them immediately after, but no cheating!

We want you to feel comfortable while learning the tongue; after all, no language should be a barrier for you to travel around the world and expand your social circles! 

So look no further! Pick up your copy of Portuguese Short Stories for Beginners and start learning Portuguese right now!

This book has been written by a native Brazilian author and is recommended for A2+ level learners. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Intermediate Plus

Definitely not for beginners. I would suggest that intermediate level learners would appreciate the support much better. Also, female characters with female voices would help with comprehension.

Good job.

This audiobook is well-narrated, the accent is native, and the lessons are well-structured. For beginners, these are quite important for comfort and retention. It would be more helpful to consider an introduction to the portuguese vocabulary first, and then use this as an accelerated way of mastering context. Either way, it is a good resource for beginners.

Just what I need!

I only bought this audio book last night, and so I'm only part way in to exploring it. However, I'm so delighted with it that I decided to post a review even before I finish it.

After a few false starts learning Portuguese in the past I was looking for a better way that works for me. I previously got totally bogged down trying to learn all those different conjugations and tenses, and so in the end I gave up.

These simple stories are told at a comfortable enough pace for me to begin to understand, or at least get the gist of. And then at the end of each story the vocabulary is given so that, the next time you listen to it you understand a lot more.

So far with this book I can say with I'm excited about learning Portuguese, and I seem to be learning quite a bit without trying too hard.

A convenient approach to learning portuguese.

The concept of this book is to allow the user to find their own meaning of each vocabulary in the context of the stories being told. It is one thing to know a word, but using it in a complex conversation like a story is more significant. This is quite convenient, as opposed to trying to figure a word out from a plain and boring language text. Also, the narration is nice and good for practicing pronunciation.

Bite sized vocabulary for beginners.

This book is great for beginners. Perhaps it is how the stories are condensed into tiny fractions that keep the listener engaged, or the small introductions of new portuguese vocabulary per story; altogether, this book ensures the listener is well educated on the context of the taught vocabulary, and of course, how to use it in a conversation. Excellent book.
