How to select an accent in the library?

Ola!

I would like to know how to select only European Portuguese in the library so that only the articles in European Portuguese would appear. There are fewer than Brazilian so it would save time if I could only see EU Portuguese :slight_smile:

Obrigado!!

Martyn

Hi Martyn
If you choose Learn/Library and then Show more filters at the bottom you can select European Portuguese.

I have uploaded some materials in European Portuguese, you can check them here: Login - LingQ

Any question, feel free to ask

Ola Fernanda,

Obrigado! I managed to find it!
I will definitely have a look at your content too, thank you very much! Do you know if Lingq has any content related to the Portuguese of Timor-Leste too? This is specifically the one I will need to learn more about…
Many thanks again!

Martyn

Hi Martyn
I’m not sure I understood what you need… do you mean content spoken with Timor-Leste accent, or content about Timor-Leste? If it is the latest, I can try to find content and record it for you. Any specific topics you’d be interested in?

Ola Fernanda,

I actually meant both, because I will move to Timor-Leste this summer. As far as I know, however, they speak with an accent closer to Lisbon Portuguese. I appreciate your offer very much, it would be amazing if you could have content about Timor-Leste. Anything from history, news, economy, etc… would be absolutely fantastic!
Thank you so much in advance!
Martyn

PS: Speaking French, Spanish and Italian, I can understand almost any content in Portuguese, but I am trying to build up my vocabulary, etc… as I am unable to speak yet. So please do feel free to select an content, it’s already very kind of you to propose your help!

Hi Martyn
This is the type of situation that motivates me to create content …content “on demand”… knowing that it will be needed for a specific situation, rather than creating lessons about general topics. I understand what you mean about reading in Portuguese, I can also understand Spanish as it is so similar to Portuguese, but I can’t speak it.

Hi Fernanda,

Thank you so much! I will be very much looking forward to the new content!
Obrigado,

Martyn
