Good, but could use some polishing

So I’ve been learning Portuguese (via Duolingo) for about a year now and have a basic understanding of the language. In an effort to grow my skills especially with listening to native speakers & speaking I’ve started listening to this podcast. I think it’s alright, and it’s been helpful, but it suffers from some flaws in my opinion. One is that the two hosts don’t seem very organized, they regularly have to work out who is saying which part of the lesson, the lessons can have widely varying structure (sometimes they’ll start with the full Portuguese, sometimes they put it at the end, sometimes it’s left out completely), and they regularly talk over each other. Second the audio quality (especially the guests) is quite poor both in the podcast and on the online lessons I’ve looked at. It’s crazy difficult to make out what they’re saying when you can barely hear it with the volume at 100% and they’re quickly speaking in another language. I understand that Portuguese people speak fast, but when you’re straining to hear it it makes it that much more difficult. Finally I’ve spent some time reading the content on the website, and I’ve noticed numerous spelling and grammatical errors. Normally I’m not a grammar nazi, but in the case of establishing yourself as a language teacher I feel that you should be held to a higher standard.
In the end I feel that it is a useful tool, and I’m grateful for all the different tools that Carla & Marlon have made available for free. In all fairness I’m about a third of the way through the first series so all of these issues may be resolved in the latest content, but the problems I’ve seen so far don’t instill much confidence in me for purchasing the paid content (private 1 on 1 lessons) anytime in the near future. I’ll keep listening, and if I feel like these issues get resolved toward the end I’ll happily revise this review. Until then, feliz aprendizado!

What a find!

I’m studying European Portuguese with a wonderful teacher in my city, but class meets just once a week. I feel that I need more practice listening and pronouncing words correctly, and this podcast is perfect for my needs. It couldn’t be better if I had submitted a wish list of everything I wanted. Muito obrigada!

Amazing podcast- v helpful for trying to learn conversational Portuguese!

I listen to this podcast everyday! I’m moving to Lisbon from the United States in December and listening to marlon and Carla converse has gotten me to a place where I feel comfortable with the language. Thanks so much for what you do!
