Becoming fluent?

Dominic-R3 August 14, 2013, 9:36 am
Ola, I've learned Spanish to a high intermediate level, but don't really feel a cultural connection to anything. I feel it's very useful here in the US and I have a chance to use it often. I don't desire it like I desire Portuguese though. I do feel like I have something in common with Brazilian culture. I like Brazilian jiu jitsu, Capoeira, I love the music, Afro connections, and the language just sounds incredible. I really want to become fluent. I'm just wondering without living in Brazil...how likely is that?

I'm using Rocket Portuguese of course, a grammar book, and a Brazilian friend by skype. I also watch Brazilian movies, music, etc.

Hi Dominic,

You are on the right way and you don't need to live there to become fluent, just be

patient and study hard.
