Celebrities speaking Portuguese

Posted on 09. May, 2013 by in Culture

Olá, pessoal! How’s it going?

Brazilians are known for their hospitality and making sure people feel welcome when they come visit so we have a blast when foreigners try to speak Portuguese, because we know it’s not a very easy one. Kudos for the effort!

Celebrities sometimes have to learn some Portuguese as a part of promoting their movies, albums, etc., so here’s a compilation of some celebrities speaking Portuguese (at least trying to!)

But I have to admit, one of my favorite celebrities who speak Portuguese are Shakira and Ricky Martin. They just don’t speak survival Portuguese, they actually speak very good Portuguese, check it out!

Bottom line: you don’t need to have a perfect accent or conjugate your verbs to perfection – trust me, I know lots of educated Brazilians who don’t – but one thing is true: if you make an effort and speak some Portuguese in Brazil, you will be highly appreciated and even be invited to someone’s home for a churrasco (barbecue)!

Talking about churrasco, tomorrow is Friday so let me wish you a great weekend! Take care and nos vemos na semana que vem!
