Yes, listening to podcasts in Portuguese is essential for improving the oral comprehension of Portuguese language learners.
NO! Not all podcasts in Portuguese are useful for improving your Portuguese. They should be appropriate and tailored to your level of Portuguese, and written by Portuguese language teachers for foreign learners. Why? Because the podcasts (texts) should include the vocabulary and proper GRAMMATICAL STRUCTURES for each level. If you’ve already tried some online Portuguese learning platforms and encountered difficulties in understanding, it’s likely because those podcasts (texts) were poorly designed and probably created by individuals who have never taught the Portuguese language.
Our A2 level portuguese podcasts should be listened to by students who have already completed level A1 and are now studying level A2 of the Portuguese language. Our A2 level podcasts contain the grammatical structures from level A1 as well as some of the grammatical structures we teach to our A2 level students.“
When students begin A2 level classes in Portuguese, they are already able to formulate some sentences and express simple ideas. However, it is still quite challenging to speak with a native or listen to Portuguese television or radio. Nevertheless, it is crucial for Portuguese language learners to find tools that allow them to improve their listening comprehension in Portuguese. That tool is here and it’s called A2 level podcasts.
