My name is Colin Lusk. I started learning Portuguese years ago. Years and years and years, before my wife and I were married, but it never seemed to do any good. I would start, get a few weeks in, give up and lapse back into monolingual idiocy. But this time is different, and I’m writing a blog about the experience.
This blog started out as a pure homework exercise but now that I’m getting reasonably good at speaking, I thought I’d try and make it into something more useful to other learners. If you look at the menus over there on the right hand side you’ll see lists to some pages where I’ve collected product reviews.
Please note that the site costs a little bit of money to host each year and I am hoping to make a little bit of money back in order to pay for it. I do this by using affiliate links. That’s just a fancy way of saying that if you click through any of the links to buy a book or an audio or whatever it’s quite likely that I’ll get a small commission on anything you buy. You don’t pay more – it just helps pay my fees at this end.
Please consider using one of these links if you are planning on buying online.
- Foyles (UK bookshop with a decent portuguese language section)
- Audible (American Audio store, has some portuguese titles but mostly brazilian: you can find a list of all the european portuguese audiobooks I know about on this page)
- Bertrand (the oldest bookshop in the world! And it’s portuguese!)
- Kobo audio and e-books.
And if you don’t fancy any of those, you could also Buy Me A Coffee for my efforts. Thanks
