I’m thrilled to publish another video from the series Learn Brazilian Portuguese with Songs. These lessons are a collaboration between Susanna Zaraysky, author of the book Language is Music, and Luciana Lage, fromStreet Smart Brazil, co-author of the book 51 Portuguese Idioms – Speak Like a Brazilian. In these lessons we use Brazilian songs to teach you Portuguese and we contrast Spanish and Portuguese to discuss pronunciation and grammar. Make sure you check out Video 1 and Video 2 as well.
In our previous lesson we used the song Você Não me Ensinou a Te Esquecer to teach you Brazilian Portuguese pronunciation. In this lesson we are going to use the same song to give you a few grammar tips.
Você Não me Ensinou a Te Esquecer was made popular by Fernando Mendes and by Caetano Veloso. There is also a Spanish version of the song made by the 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.
