Filmed on-location in Rio de Janeiro by an all Brazilian cast, we’ve slowed things down a bit so it’s much easier to pick up.
Everything is clear, crisp, understandable.
Our videos series’ are designed to train your ear. You will find your self literally absorbing new phrases and vocabulary as you get into the story.
If you’re learning a language to communicate in real life, expose yourself to real language and real situations.
Your brain figures out a new language in two parts: rules analysis, and training (practice).
We’re the training part.

This will be a very big series of dialogs that is one continuous story. We are picking up right where Series 1 left off. The story is new, but the language level is adjusted so that anyone that can understand the Raquel & Paul story will be able to jump right in and start learning to a much higher level eventually.
