Portuguese content

I have searched for Portuguese content to import here on LingQ, but I’m having a hard time. If you could recommend me any youtube channels, websites or podcasts it would be great. I prefer Brazilian Portuguese, but I wouldn’t mind listening to european portuguese or other versions of it.



Perhaps I can help you! What kind of content are you looking for?

Thank you! I have a wide range of interests, it could be history, comedy, travel, news, or almost anything really. I just started learning on saturday but I speak Spanish as a native language, so I don’t have difficulties understanding Brazilian Portuguese.

Ok, There is a website called “Brasil Escola” teaching about the history of Brazil. There is an audio as well on the page.

The next one is a humor website I hope you enjoy: Humor - Mega Curioso

I don’t know if you enjoy the news but here’s a good one: https://www.uol.com.br/

I hope it can help you! Please let me know if there is anything else that I can do to help in your journey to learn Brazilian Portuguese!!


I almost forget! Search for Nerdcast – Jovem Nerd on iTunes it is a good podcast in Portuguese :slight_smile:


Thank you, I don’t need more help for now. If you decide to learn Spanish or any of the other languages that I speak, I would be glad to help!!

  9. Márcio Ballas (17:05): O olhar do SIM - Lições do palhaço e do improviso

Unfortunately not.

I don’t know if these channels have the closed captions but lingq blog did post a list of brasilian youtubers.




These are some Brazilian youtube channels I watch.
Nexo Jornal - YouTube News
Spotniks - YouTube Politics and Current Issues
Porta dos Fundos - YouTube Comedy
reVisão - YouTube History
Se Liga - Enem e Vestibulares - YouTube History, philosophy, other educational subjects


Thank you for the channels, I already watched some videos and they are definitely my type.

This seems like an interesting channel. I haven’t watched it yet but I plan to use it in order to take my portuguese up a notch.
It 's seems to be one of those “how is it to live in country X” types of channels.
