Re: dictionary - Message sent by Stefan (Rolânida, PR, Brazil) on Sept 23, 2008
am a great fan of your grammar and am now in need of a good and reliable
dictionary - not too brief. As I will work as a university lecturer here in
Brazil (Theology) I will need something bigger. Could you please point my
attention in the right direction? At Amazon I encountered a volume from Porto
Editora - I do not know whether this would be a good one. Surely you will have a
good overview of the market. Thanks for your help on this, Stefan
A. I don't know Porto Editora dictionary. I use Collins and Longmann Pocket dictionaries and I am happy with them. Michaelis dictionary is also very popular in Brazil and it's available in Portuguese, Portuguese/English, Portuguese/German, etc. Check out the Michaelis online version: http://michaelis.uol.com.br/moderno/ingles/index.php Aurelio Portuguese dictionary is also good (http://www.aureliopositivo.com.br/aurelio/default.asp).

Re: Portuguese problem - Message sent by Rattan on March 10, 2007
Q. I am learning portuguese for the last 4 months but I was never serious but now I have taken it very seriously. Can you give me an idea, how much time it will take to speak good portuguese because right now, I am hardly able to understand portuguese. Actually what you suggest, first I should work on written and then go for speaking or I should do it together. Thanks and regards. Rattan
A. It depends on you. Some people learn easily, some people need more time. Usually you learn to speak and read first and by doing the exercises, you learn the writing. You can find tips on learning Portuguese on my website (http://www.sonia-portuguese.com/text/faqs.htm). If you want and need to learn Portuguese beyond the basics, I highly recommend my CD-ROM course and grammar book to you, which are available for sale only through my website. Both materials are designed for self-study and one complements the other.
Re: Portuguese for children - Message sent by Kathryn (USA) on March 6, 2007
Q. Hi, I have a question for you. I am American and I can't speak Portuguese very well. My husband is from Brazil. We live in the United States and we have a son who is 3. He doesn't speak at all in Portuguese. I want him to learn, but I don't know what to do. All the programs that I find are for adults or people that can read. Do you have any idea what I can do to teach him. My husband says some things to him. I believe that he needs more. Thank you for your help. Kathryn
A. You can find many Brazilian sites for children at the Links section on my website. I suggest that your husband speaks to your son only in Portuguese so he can learn Portuguese from him.
