Basic Portuguese Course "Vou Aprender Português" (Beta version)

An important message from Diego (creator of the course) before you start going through the lessons:

Welcome to the Beta version of the Portuguese course for beginners Vou Aprender Português. If you're seeing this message, it means you're part of a select group of people who have been chosen to test this course. This means that your feedback and opinion are very important to me.

I chose you to test this course because I believe you have relevant opinions and because when you started your journey learning Portuguese you were in exactly the same position as the students who are going to buy this course.

So don't be afraid to tell me anything you think could be improved in this course.

Disclaimer: This is not the platform that the course will be sold on. This platform was developed by me, with the sole intention of making the course material available for students to test. I know that this "platform" is not at all pretty and is far from being a complete product. At this very moment, the lessons in this course are being uploaded to the Hotmart platform. You will receive more information about this in the next days. The aim here is simply to have a place where you can watch all the videos in a logical way.

To do this, I'm going to give you some instructions on how you can test the modules and lessons more efficiently:

  1. Start with module 0. There you will see important information about the course. The lessons in this module are provisional. When the course is uploaded to the final platform, this module will be completely re-recorded (without the robotic voice).

  2. After module 0, you can choose to access the modules and lessons sequentially or randomly. All lessons have a video and a PDF with the written material. If you spot any English or Portuguese mistakes, or simply see that something doesn't make sense, please let me know.

  3. Please check that the videos have Portuguese and English subtitles. If for some reason one of the two subtitles doesn't work for you, also let me know.

  4. At the end of each module there are a series of exercises. Try to do these exercises, they're not too complicated. If there are any exercises you don't understand or if the answer doesn't make sense to you, let me know.

  5. Finally, in general, if there's anything you think could be removed, added or changed, let me know.

Update (Feb 17th): Summaries were added to each of the lessons in the course, as a way of highlighting the most important points to be learned, making the course a little less dense and a little more engaging.

The exercises at the end of each module don't seem to be in the right place and would be better if they were distributed right after each lesson. So, I will move them to make the course more dynamic and interactive. At the end of each module, there will be a slightly different exercise. Also, the robotic voice on Module 0 sound very bad. So, after the course is uploaded to the new platform, I will record the entire Module 0 with my own voice.

Thank you very much for your time! After all the feedback and changes have been made, I'm going to make this course available to you permanently, so that you always have a quick and complete source of reference. This Beta version will only be available through this link until February 29, 2024.

If you have any questions or comments, you can send me a message at any time at portuguesvouaprender@gmail.com.

Obrigado!
