1. How can I quickly improve my Portuguese vocabulary?

Well, I'd suggest these very simple steps:

a. Print the Common Words , and put them in a visible spot.

b. Prepare some flashcards, with the words on one side and the examples on the other.

c. Keep them in your pocket.

d. Whenever you have a short spare time, take them out and have a look.

You'll be surprised by how much you can improve your Portuguese in just a couple of weeks!


2. Do you provide any English-Portuguese translations?

Certainly! As a matter of fact, depending on the length of your document, I can translate it for FREE ! For books, Web sites or longer issues, I can provide you with a budget.


3. Can you help me to write/edit or review my book?

As soon as you get to an intermediate level, join me at Recanto das Letras . (If your experience is like mine, you will fall in love with this Web site!)


6. Do you have a printer-friendly version of any page?

No yet, but here is what you can do:

  • Edit your text: Tools – Language – Select language – Justify

    It will cut way down the number of pages to print. Any question, please contact me.
