Learning how Brazilians speak

FWBP has allowed me to learn how actual Brazilians speak Portuguese in conversational situations. Having access to the PDF notes ensures that topics and lessons can be reviewed. I would recommend Fernando to any individual aspiring to bring their learning to the next level.

Fernando is a great teacher!

Having completed the entire Portuguese course in Duolingo at the end of this past year, I began looking for other ways to continue my learning. I thought this course would mainly be some review for me, but I’ve enjoyed learning so much! Fernando is an excellent teacher and clearly explains all the concepts, and his visual aids are excellent. Duolingo does a good job at getting you to practice, but it doesn’t teach you the how’s and why’s. Thankful for the excellent explanations in this course!

Great course, great value for money.

I love this course. The course is nicely indexed, and each section has not only a video explanation but also a PDF which covers the content of the video and more. You will learn the pronunciations and the basics rules. The course can be used as a reminder or quick lookup of topics and as an everyday refresher. The course covers a surprising amount of content, over 48 lessons.

Great Learning Material

I bought this course to help refresh things I had already learned and also to hopefully pick up some things I hadn't come across before..and it ticked both boxes. I especially like the explanation of colloquialisms. Overall this was a very worthwhile purchase and a great addition to my collection of learning materials for Brazilian Portuguese! Muito obrigado Fernando!

Great course for ALL levels - beginners to advanced!

I am really enjoying - and learning from - Fernando's course! I speak fluently but have never studied Portuguese formally, and the step-by-step approach and detail provided has been really helpful for me to deepen my understanding of Portuguese. My kids are just beginning and the lessons are small enough chunks that they can stay focused long enough and retain a lot of what they are learning. I especially love the focus on pronunciation and explaining how certain sounds differ from English or what might be challenging for English speakers; that has helped my kids immensely. Highly recommended whether you're just learning or need to brush up on your current skills.

"This course is great because it is like an online text book. It is neatly organised into short units so you can complete them in order and have some structure to your study. The videos and quizzes are great! Fernando has excellent English and explains everything so well, it is evident he has a lot of years of experience behind him. I think these course are excellent value for money and highly recommend it."

"Clear, succint and practical. I'm thoroughly enjoying watching the video lessons and learning a new language!  Fernando explains each point very patiently. The slides are cool, and there are notes after each video, so I don't need to jot down anything, just print them and revise for the next lesson. Thanks!"

Marina Petrovic











With clear detailed explanations this course is a delight to work through. Each topic concludes with a pronunciation practice which is particularly helpful. All in all, an extremely well structured and implemented course; an extremely accessible introduction to the Portuguese language as spoken in Brazil.

Larry North

The course is fantastic! I love the notes given, I've been using them to study and it's helped immensely

Matthew Wallen

I'm just half way through, and I have to say this is an excellent course. Fernando is a very thorough teacher, the pronunciation lessons are particularly good. It's important to read the notes associated with each lesson, otherwise you may think he goes too fast. The notes explain and help to consolidate what you've just learned. I'm really hoping that I'll be able to speak or at least read Brazilian Portuguese quite well by the time I have to conduct a wedding in this lovely language!

This method is very impressive and very effective. There is just the right amount of grammar and phonetics that one needs to learn and progress in Brazilian Portuguese. The lessons are not too long, not too short - just the right length. Most importantly, they cover the basic situations one needs to master to become functional in Brazil. Each lecture comes with provide the student with a useful reference on relevant grammar, basic terminology, and cultural commentaries where apprpriate. I have used Mr. Nonohay's services before, and I know that with him, clients can count on quality and timely feedback. I fully recommend this course to anyone interested in learning or developing skills in Brazilian Portuguese.

J. F. Carle

So far enjoying the course - I'm in Brazil right now and the first two lessons are hitting on the number 1 and 2 items I'm hearing all around me right now. I'm starting to feel like I know what's going on - money well spent already!

Casey Walters

It is almost self explanatory the way you are teaching it. I mean, you make it easy to learn, memorize and remember. I have learned alot and will continue learning as this will be my go back to when I need to go over a prior lesson

I totally recommend this course. Fernando is very good explaining all the topics in the course and provides very good examples. This course will help you to get familiar to the brazilian colloquial speaking way.

Rodrigo Arredondo

This  is a wonderful course. Fernando has a clear and soothing voice, and his relaxed manner helped me overcome my fear of language learning. The lesson content builds as you go along, and soon you will find yourself speaking Brazilian Portuguese with ease. He also included helpful handouts for each lesson. I looked forward to every lesson and hope there is a followup Brazilian Portuguese course, would love to learn more from this outstanding instructor. He answers questions from students promptly. You will love this course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jahra N

I found this course to be extremely easy to follow and easy to learn. Maybe I had a distinct advantage as a native Spanish speaker, however, the lectures and the order in which they were put together seemed very logical to me. I was able to apply what I learned during my recent trip to Brazil. I wish all language courses followed a similar format to Fernando's course. The results that I garnered from this course have encouraged me to study this language further.

Andy Lopez

This is an excellent resource. Fernando has a pleasant, clear style which simplifies the learning process. All lessons come with downloadable pdf notes that expand on the videos. Works for a variety of learning styles. Thanks Fernando!
