ON LANGUAGES

Learning a foreign language is always a challenge. Not only we have to memorise vocabulary and understand grammar rules, we also have to see the world through another culture. Language is always evolving and it does have a purpose: to communicate with other people. Therefore, a good possible way to learn a foreign language can be to just use it and enlarge our knowledge from there. Here are some examples for starting (in PT: Portuguese | EN: English | DE: German | FR: French | ES: Spanish):

  • Use of language: VERBS (indicative mood) – verb tenses of indicative mood according with their use
  • Use of language: VERBS (conditions and subjunctive) – verb tenses of conditional and subjective mood according with their use
  • Vocabulary: TIME – vocabulary tables for searching the right word
  • Vocabulary: PLACES – vocabulary tables for searching the right word
  • Portuguese: European vs Brazilian – what are the differences between European Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese?
