This is the second video in our series Learn Brazilian Portuguese with Songs. These lessons are a collaboration between Susanna Zaraysky, author of the book Language is Music, and Luciana Lage, from Street Smart Brazil. We are going to use Brazilian songs to teach you Portuguese. Additionally, we are going to contrast Spanish and Portuguese to discuss pronunciation and grammar.
This lesson uses the song called Você Não me Ensinou a Te Esquecer which was made popular by Fernando Mendes and by Caetano Veloso. There is also a Spanish version of the song made by Marcus Maestro. The Spanish version is not exactly the same as the Brazilian one; it’s not a direct translation. Here are the links for the lyrics and the videos of the Brazilian and Spanish versions of the song.
