25 Interesting Expressions used in Brazil

25 IEUIBIntroducing my third ebook (PDF) for learning Brazilian Portuguese which, as the title says, includes 25 interesting expressions used in Brazil, as well as their origins. If you’re looking to come a little closer to your goal of being fluent, this will help you get there. According to the introduction inside,

“This e-book is for anyone with an interest in Brazilian Portuguese and gaining knowledge that would be considered pretty common within Brazil. The phrases and expressions, being idiomatic, aren’t used every day, nor should they be, but they are interesting to know, fun to use, and useful to keep in your linguistic toolbox (and, of course, it makes you feel smart to recognize something seemingly nonsensical in another language).”

After successfully launching my first ebook, 103 Tricky Verbs in Brazilian Portuguese right here on Eyes On Brazil, today, I’m announcing my second ebook (PDF), 150 Tricky Words in Brazilian Portuguese. It is based on content I created for this blog several years back, only I’ve reworked and improved it, in addition to having it edited by a native Brazilian Portuguese speaker.

Just like the first ebook, as a PDF, it can be viewed (via Apple’s iBooks app) on iOS devices as well as on Amazon’s Kindle devices (or any device or computer that allows for PDF viewing).

The ebook is aimed to make Brazilian Portuguese easier for those of you who are finding yourselves unsure of when to use one word over another. As the title states, there are (technically more than) 150 Tricky Words, spread out over 44 Word Sets (groupings of words that have similar meanings) which include example sentences and, in many cases, additional information on the word(s).

Here’s an actual Word Set you’ll learn about in my e-book:

Today, Eyes On Brazil turns 5 years old (that’s 20 in blog years). This year it looks like I’ll hit one million views, pretty good for a blog I started from nothing.

While there are lots of posts that readers have favorited over the years, the one that has grown to receive the most attention is the long, detailed Brazilian Films list I created. It’s up to 180 films so far (and growing).

Going back in time, here are a few of my first posts on the blog:

- On Italian immigration (my Portuguese translation included)
- On State etymologies
- On the Volta da Asa Branca song
- On Repentistas (troubadores)

I’d also like to take a minute to say thanks to Luciana from Street Smart Brazil who gave me an empurrãozinho (little push) late last year to start making my own ebooks (after having editing hers). My 103 Tricky Verbs in Brazilian Portuguese, which is selling well (and which I’ll have on Amazon, etc. in the coming weeks), is the first of several to come!

I’ll leave you with a suave Bossa song that just came on the radio ; )
