Brazilian Portuguese Soccer in 30 Seconds E2

A few days after I arrived in Rio, I found myself on a bus with all of its passengers in the midst of an animated discussion about me.  The team training session had been moved to another location, and I was trying to find it. Although I knew some Portuguese, my simply formed question to the bus driver ignited a conversation about why this American girl was traveling alone to a place for a soccer practice.

Today's lesson will hopefully help you get to the field you are looking for a little easier.

When I was living in Rio, one of my teammates took me to see Christ the Redeemer.  Our multi-lingual, van driver gave me a really great piece advice on language learning.  Learn a new word or group of words every day.

So as the global community grows smaller and smaller, I am tapping into the power of my soccer ball to help you learn another language-Brazilian Portuguese.

In 3o seconds, I will help you add a word to your vocabulary that you communicate with the Brazilians that cross your path because to a Brazilian soccer is the language of love!
