1. Get Your Favorite Brazilian Song by Sara Bentes

After Maggie, from Philippines, shared her motivating words through our Web site, we started a real friendship.

Then, she recorded the first lesson in English for our English learners from Brazil.

Sara Bentes, my favorite Brazilian friend, liked the idea and also offered to record the Portuguese lessons from 'Learn Portuguese at Home - Book One'.

While we wait for her recording, you can listen to samples of her music, and download a FREE song with lyrics in English and Portuguese at:

After listening to the samples, you can choose one of them, and I will send you the lyrics for your favorite song.

*Please send me the title of your favorite song:
