Wow! Three weeks in already! Crazy stuff.

This week’s goal, as you may remember, was to learn the lyrics to Ai Se Eu Te Pego. Well, it turns out there’s actually not that many lyrics and I must have listened to it so much that I knew most of it! Not wanted to do something too easy (you gotta keep challenging yourself!) I decided to add another song in there to learn – Balada Boa by Gustavo Lima. The most arrogant song ever.

This week’s video was a lot of fun to film – because I had people with me! My friends Hannah and Gabi joined me to check I was saying everything right. Gabi is actually Brazilian and was staying with us over the weekend so that was pretty perfect! Thanks for helping Gabi and Hannah!

I had a great lesson this week with one of my tutors Fernanda and we talked all about the subjunctive! So for next weeks goal, I’ll be including lots of subjunctive in my video. Eeek.

Are you doing the italki World Cup Language Challenge? How is it going? I’d love to know in the comments!
