Abstract

Conversa Brasileira, http://coerll.utexas.edu/brazilpod/cob/, is a web-based Portuguese program developed at the University of Texas, which is designed to provide intermediate- and advanced-level students of Portuguese with an opportunity to analyze and study how Brazilians actually talk to one another in informal conversations. The online materials are comprised of 35 short video clips that are accompanied with optional Portuguese subtitles, English translations, pop-up commentary and analysis, PDF lesson notes, and user discussion blogs. The content of the videos provides learners with a slice-of-live view of Brazilian conversations in natural settings. This textbook provides learners with a hard copy of the lesson transcripts, translations, and lesson notes. Conversa Brasileira is just one of the many Portuguese Language projects that make up the complete collection of BrazilPod, http://coerll.utexas.edu/brazilpod/index.php.
