Portuguese Language Resouces

Below is a number of sites I recommend; they have been selected as tools to help you continue your studies of the Portuguese language online and offline.

If you know of other useful resources, please let me know.


Online Portuguese Dictionaries

Babylon Portuguese dictionarySimply put, Babylon is a desktop translation software that works on the idea of a single-click translation.

Babylon has partnered with Michaelis dictionaries, a major world publisher of Portuguese dictionaries, to deliver you translation results from and to Portuguese in a variety of languages.

Here is a short YouTube presentation of Babylon software features:

Babylon offers a collection of free English to Portuguese online dictionaries. Their dictionaries are one of the most complete English to Portuguese and Portuguese to English translation tools available, also containing general dictionaries and technical glossaries.

If you have an intermediate knowledge of Portuguese and already have Babylon on your computer, why not add the Dicionario Aurelio to your collection?

Portuguese Books and Learning Programs

Although I haven't personally used all books and learning software listed, I've set some kind of criteria to to ensure that I've brought you what I think is the best material for learning Hebrew. For example, I made sure all materials had at least a 4 star rating (rated by 3 people or more), and read a couple of good and bad reviews.

In any case, you are invited to leave me a comment if you have used any of the materials here listed.
