Radio googoo, Radio gaga… help us!

21 Feb


Our Sheffield colleagues need some help in finding radio stations here in Brazil to help them improve their Portuguese listening skills.

“It would help us so much and is probably a great way to learn about Brazilian culture and music. I especially love Xuxa and Calipso.” says Chris Hemmings.

Tracey Wilson added, “We probably need to listen to the radio a bit more. We can listen at work. I love Sepultura and Bonde do Tigrao…”


So, can you help them? Do you know any good radio links? If you have any suggestions, please paste the link here and the best suggestion will win a bottle of English beer. Cold.

In an exclusive interview Chris Hemmings, 26, said “oi… tudo bem… its fantastico!… tchau!”

Lessons take place online, conveniently, whilst they are sat at their desks in sunny Yorkshire and with their teacher in Brazil.
