How was this podcast created?

I do not know what I would do without Practice Portuguese during the famous spring #quarantine2020. For several weeks I was able to study Portuguese grammar from the comfort of my own couch.

There is so much study material on the site that even doing 8 tests a day, my quarantine would have to last a year 🙂 As if this was not enough, during the quarantine the authors accelerated, and you saw something new on the site almost daily. So no, I am not done, but I did get quite far.

While I was listening to Shorties, covering different areas of Portugal I noticed that there isn’t yet one about Madeira Island. And so, I suggested writing the first podcast in my life. I sat down, started listing the beautiful aspects of Madeira in English and Portuguese and … wrote way too much. The text had to be shortened quite a bit. It was recorded in their Lisbon studio, by Eliana & Rui, one of the founders of Practice Portuguese.

Once again, we hope you liked the result and good luck studying Portuguese!
