Body in Portuguese

You use your body all the time. It gets you from A to B, using your legs to walk to the store, your hands to open a door, your shoulders to carry a backpack... In English you're very comfortable talking about all these parts of the body, but how about talking about the body in Portuguese?

Learning body parts is very important. If you ever need to go to the doctor or the pharmacy, you'll need to know what you're talking about. That's why we'll be talking about all the different parts of the body – corpo – in this lesson.
