Since being in Brazil, I’ve been getting my American TV shows fix online. Since I have the privilege of speaking English and having a great internet connection, I don’t have to wait until the episodes get to cable tv in Brazil in order to keep up with my American friends’ Facebook comments on different shows. So the other day, as I was looking for a House episode on Sidereel.com, I opened a video that was dubbed in Spanish! I thought the opening was actually supposed to be in Spanish until House walks in speaking Spanish as well…
Which got me thinking – this is a great way to learn!
Have any of you tried watching your favorite TV shows or movies dubbed in Portuguese or even with Portuguese subtitles (for beginners?). It’s a great practice to watch sentence construction while assimilating words in Portuguese with those in English and just watching your favorite characters speaking Portuguese (it can also be quite funny)!
For those who are beginners, Terra TV is a great place to start because there are tons of episodes in English with Portuguese subtitles – they have all sorts of great shows like Lost (after last night’s finale, you can watch it all over again, but subtitled in Portuguese!), Scrubs, Ugly Betty, and more!
There are also some documentaries and movies both in Portuguese and English with subtitles on there!
Another place to go is YouTube! All you have to do is look up “TV show + dublado” if you want to watch the show in Portuguese or “TV show + legendado” if you want subtitles! It would also help if you searched on YouTube Brasil – it gets you better results 😉
