Countries in Portuguese

One of the first questions you’ll be asked when meeting someone in a Portuguese-speaking country is ‘Where are you from?’ – ‘De onde você é.

Whether you’re from Canada or Colombia, this Rocket Portuguese lesson on countries will prepare you for these questions and help you ask them in return and understand the answer!  Many of the names of countries are similar in English and Portuguese but pronounced slightly differently so they’ll be easier to remember.  Practice these country names out loud so you can sound natural when talking to a native Portuguese speaker!

Tchau,
