Health in Portuguese

You never know when you’ll need to talk about your health in Portuguese, so it’s best to be prepared. After today’s Portuguese language lesson with audio you’ll be able to say if you’re not feeling well, and recognize the Portuguese words for a health shop, natural medicine and more.

But it’s not always about medical Portuguese. Ever heard Brazilian people saying "saúde" when they raise their glasses for a toast and wondered what it meant? It’s the expression for "cheers" in Portuguese!
