"I've fallen more in love with Brazil's music, culture, + language through this podcast!"

I've been listening to Carioca Connection for one and a half years—since I began my Portuguese-learning journey, and I absolutely love listening to their podcast.

My understanding of the spoken language has expanded through hearing their fun and interesting conversations. The best part is how listening to this podcast has played a role in how I've been able to deepen my relationships with my Brazilian friends here in the U.S.

As a language teacher who comes from a bilingual upbringing, I've also appreciated Alexia and Foster's eye to linguistics and language acquisition. I've fallen more and more in love with the music, history, and culture of Brazil through their thorough and broad topics. I can't wait to keep training my ear to speak with the unique Carioca "sotaque" (my favorite accent from Brazil—the Rio accent), and to keep opening my heart to more and more knowledge about the people and culture of Brasil through Carioca Connection.

I hope they record a thousand more seasons ;) Muito obrigada Alexia e Foster! Tudo de bom para vocês!"

"As a brand new student to Brazilian Portuguese, I am excited to have the opportunity to listen to such a well-produced, high quality podcast. Alexia and Foster are to be commended fo putting together content that is accessible to absolute beginners but has plenty of content for more advanced learners, as other reviews here attest to. The conversational content isn't contrived, and if something that's said is a bit too quick, or you want to see exactly how the sentence was constructed, you can easily obtain the transcripts. I look forward to getting further into the series. Muito obrigado, Alexia & Foster!"

Adventures with Alexia

To give you an idea of our in-depth members-only content —look no further than "Adventures with Alexia."

Alexia recorded a collection of captivating conversations with Brazilians traveling the world. Each episode provides a unique perspective about Brazil, why some Brazilians choose to leave their home country, and how Brazilians adapt into new cultures.

The exclusive episodes are real-life conversations between Brazilians, so they are more advanced than our usual podcast, perfect for ambitious students looking to reach fluency even faster.

"I speak three other languages and can say that for me this is one of the best language instructional programs around.I just discovered this fresh and super instructive Brazilian Portuguese podcast, and it's totally addictive!

It's exactly what I've been looking for to learn real Portuguese, including all sorts of slang expressions and the little conversational fillers and cues that are part of normal conversations.

The podcasts and worksheets are high quality...hosts Alexia and Foster provide a great look into how a Carioca and an advanced and improving non-native speaker relate to the language.

The mix of topics includes just about anything you can think of in daily life, from ordering in metric units in a supermarket to European Portuguese to Giselle's role in Brazilian life to unique Brazilian expressions to elections and much more.

The episodes about Brazilian music, especially the ones with guest Renato, are worth the cost of the audio and transcripts by themselves. I speak three other languages and can say that for me this is one of the best language instructional programs around. It's a lot of fun!"

FAQ

Can I cancel at anytime?

Yes! You can cancel your subscription at any moment by accessing your account and selecting the “cancel” option. When you do this, you will keep your access to the membership or the remainder of the period you paid for, but you will not be charged again when that period (monthly or annual) is over.

How does the billing work?

If you choose the monthly subscription you will automatically be charged monthly. If you chose the annual subscription, you receive a substantial discount and you will be charged automatically annually. Your membership fee is locked in for the lifetime of your membership. This means the price does not change, even if there’s a price increase for new members.

Is my payment secure?

All card payments are processed with Stripe. Everything is secure. We don’t see your payment information. It’s all locked away in high-security digital vaults on billion-dollar company servers.

How should I study with the worksheets?

Students use the worksheets in many different ways, depending on their language level, learning preferences, and goals. Throughout the membership, we provide a variety of strategies to make the most of our high-quality resources.

How is the Carioca Connection Club different from the old worksheets?

Whew, where to start? While the core material and focus of the club is largely the same — providing the highest quality Brazilian Portuguese resources we possibly can, we've changed and updated a lot of things. Some key differences are:

  • The updated worksheets are no longer in PDF, but are much more versatile resources that allow for more flexibility, are easier to use and study with, and function perfectly on all devices.

    • Behind the scenes access to Carioca Connection Labs
    • Exclusive participation in Special Projects like Adventures with Alexia

Secondly, you will continue to have access to the original PDF copies of the worksheets and we are giving all of our existing students an exclusive offer on the membership. If you have not received an email about this — please get in touch with us at hi@cariocaconnection.com

What if I'm just old school and want the worksheets in PDF format?

We like old school. If you purchased the worksheets in the past, you will still have access to them and they are yours to keep forever. If you would prefer PDF's for the new material, just let us know and we will send you a copy.

“I’ve listened to every episode of this podcast and it has helped my Portuguese so much! I’ve never been to Brazil, but after listening to these episodes, I can now listen to the news in Brazilian Portuguese and mostly understand what’s going on! I especially love some of the more recent episodes where the hosts really open up about issues that are important to them, like mental health 😊 Obrigada, Alexia e Foster!”

Brazilian Portuguese is hard. We make it easier.

Tom Jobim famously said, "O Brasil não é para principiantes."

We are here to change that.

Carioca Connection Club makes learning real-life Brazilian Portuguese easier, faster, and more fun than ever before.

  • Dramatically improve your comprehension!
  • Speak Portuguese more confidently!
  • Dive deep in Brazilian culture!
  • Connect with Brazilians!

Still unsure? Carioca Connection Club is a perfect fit if you...

“I grew up in São Paulo a long time ago. I hadn’t been back in 35 years and I fell in love with Brazil all over again. While I had retained a good deal of Portuguese over the years, it was a struggle. Reading a lot helped of course, but understanding the spoken word was difficult. Especially for me. I’m deaf and wear hearing aids and English is tough. You guys helped a lot! The episodes are all engaging and really highlight some of the lesser known aspects of Brazil. The politics (Alexia, seu pai é ótimo!!), the music, literature, all of it. I hope it continues to season 5. Muito obrigado!"
