This programme is in Portuguese. It is not easy to follow so not for beginners but the YouTube subtitles might help. Includes a lovely segment on ser/estar...

Hope somebody finds it useful/amusing.

Thanks for the link.

To clarify. My original post is a supposed to be humorous piece comparing Brazilian and European Portuguese, including a little on the use of ser and estar which for many, including me, can be a minefield.

Essentially a conversation between Ricardo Artur de Araújo Pereira (Portuguese) and José Eugênio Soares (Brazilian).It is not intended for beginners. Even with my llimited Portuguee I found it funny.

@cabanastavira sorry for the misunderstanding! I find Brazilian speakers really hard to understand, so avoid listening too much!

For me listening is the skill I find hardest - I have to make myself concentrate when it isn't my teacher. Hence the comedy, makes the listening easier: a bit!
