Brazilian Portuguese usage, from the University of Texas at Austin

Ta Falado is a great source of learning material for Portuguese learners from the University of Texas at Austin. These resources are available free of charge on the internet. This particular series is a pleasant review of Portuguese usage in Brazil, contrasted with the corresponding patterns in Spanish.

I have always felt that grammar is something you need to review many times, at different stages of your learning, never with the intention of remembering anything. The more exposure you already have to the language, the more the grammar explanations stick. This Ta Falado grammar series is pleasant to listen to, and a great way to touch on some elements of usage that might have escaped our notice.

It would be interesting to see similar series for other languages.
