Tip: Verb dictionaries can be useful for those learning languages. You’ll find verbs conjugated in the different tenses, which is very handy to double check you’re right, and also to check the meaning of a conjugated verb too (as only the infinitive is in a normal dictionary)

Tip: Have fun :) Learning a language is hard work, but it’s fun! You’re end goal is to understand and communicate with people, and you can have a lot of fun practising Portuguese with Portuguese people, who are incredibly patient and understanding. Don’t worry about not knowing everything. Let’s face it, you never will! So have fun finding out new things and meeting new people!

Tip: When you come across unknown words use the words you know to make a guess as to what it could be. Use the context to help you too. E.g. nebulosidade is not very far from nuvem(=cloud) so you could guess it has something to do with clouds
Bom dia! The website above has a description of the weather for today. Here’s what it says for Região Sul : ‘Céu pouco nublado ou limpo, aumentando gradualmente de nebulosidade a partir do meio da tarde.’ At what time of day will the weather be better?
