There is a lack of intermediate level portugês podcasts and this is just amazing. Leni's voice is really clear but not as slow as other beginner's podcast, just perfect for next level portugês. The topics and duration are great too. This is now my favorite podcast. Greetings from...Read full review »

This podcast is helping me learn tons of vocabulary and expressions in Portuguese as cultural facts about Brazil. I enjoy listening while commuting, and sometimes listen to an episode twice. It’s exactly what I was looking for to keep learning! It’s not boring at all. I love it.
Sambisima via Apple Podcasts · Ecuador · 12/09/21
Fantástico esse podcast. Really glad I found it. There’s some great vocabulary to be learned at the intermediate level. But even if you’re advanced or fluent like me, you will still benefit tremendously from the cultural exposition Leni is doing. Can’t recommend enough ❤️

The host of this podcast is so diligent to research and deliver history, culture, etc of Brazil. He also has a great speaking pace, not too fast, and speaks very clearly. I haven’t checked out his website yet but to be able to access the transcript would be awesome for deeper learning. Thanks!

Sigo Fala Gringo desde a primeira temporada para melhorar o meu português e acho que é muito útil, por isso mesmo eu falei disso aos meus colegas da universidade. Os temas são bem explicados e interessantes também para ter um pouco de cultura sobre o Brasil! E Leni é um dos melhor maestro quê teve.
