"May there always be work for your hands to do,
may your purse always hold a coin or two.

May the sun always shine on your windowpane,
may a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.

May the hand of a friend always be near you,
may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you."

-- Irish Blessing

2. YOUR Story May Become an Ebook!

Everyone loves hearing real life stories. Me too. That’s why our newest Web page allows you to turn your own story on language learning to a page on Learn Portuguese Now!

Maybe you mispronounced a word in a foreign language, or saw a touching scene on a distant land. If you have any story – specially the funny ones – let the world know about that!

In fact, I’m writing a book on this subject, and would love to include YOUR story on it. The best stories will become a FREE eBook, to be sent to more than 1,000 subscribers of this Newsletter.

Besides, they will be translated to Portuguese too!

Can you imagine the pleasure of downloading an eBook in which your own story is included? You may print it give an original gift next Christmas, or simply share it with other language learners.

To take part of this project, all you have to do is put pen to paper - or fingers to keyboard – and press the ‘show time’ button! :o)

Here is the link:

The 10 first people who send their stories will receive a copy of Learn Portuguese at Home. The first one will ALSO receive Sara Bentes Songbook in PDF with 10 songs in MP3!

PS: No need to rush. If you want me to keep your spot, just send me an e-mail telling you are working on your story -- and I’ll save your place in line! ;o)

"You start as an audience member and create a world you're interested in, and then you move into the telling of those stories, bringing what has interested you as an audience member." ~ Neil LaBute

I will be waiting for you there:

Wishing you all the best,
