One of the things that I have been doing to help myself learn Portuguese (outside of the regular lessons) is listening to Brazilian artists. I find a song and I translate the verses one by one. This also helps in sort of understanding the way real Portuguese speakers map out the language. I have been completely absorbed by Anavitoria’s Cancao de Hotel lately. Now while listening to it I can actually understand some of the song as it plays, instead of just having a general idea of what they’re saying. It has just been such a lovely listening experience.

30-something Mississippi queer. Bleeding heart with a soft spot for honesty and oversharing. Conquering corporate America and my own insecurities– one day at a time.
