I used to be fluent, lived in Brazil for 9 months, but need to brush up Are there any daily podcasts, radio shows or news programs online? I want our 2 dds to learn as well. We already speak Spanish and I'm looking for natives speaking in normal ways not to teach it as a second language unless it were to Spanish speakers. I've found some cartoons on youtube and a few audiobooks on librivox, but we can always use more native input

I'd check out Globo, I know DH looks at stuff there a lot. Also, we have a ton of Monica DVD's for DD. They are ridiculously cheap there (something like $R12) and I think there are some places that you can order them online in the states but you might have to google that because I don't know off the top of my head. DD also has some of the comic books that she likes to look at.

DD is also totally obsessed with Maisa (she has a ton of videos on youtube). DH can stand her so we don't let DD watch her too often but every now and then if we're feeling generous.

Besides that have you checked somewhere like to see if there are any local Portuguese speaking playgroups?
