This is a great documentary (in Brazilian Portuguese) about this great Samba composer (Sambista) Bezerra da Silva, and how the day-to-day life inspires the production of new songs.
The language used in this video is mainly Brazilian Portuguese slang which might be a bit difficult for some of you, but it's worth watching anyway, and the way Samba is made is amazing!

Mind the vocabulary that you are likely to be using when talking about other things - write them down and ad them to your list.)

Boa noite, tudo bem?
The other day I was talking to a friend of mine and one funny expression came along in the conversation:
"A galinha da minha vizinha era sempre melhor do que a minha."
This literally means "My neighbour's chicken was always better than my one." However what it means in Portuguese is:
"The grass was always greener on the other side."
Very funny, isn't it?
Today I was talking to another friend and he said something very funny too, yet very common which was:
"Ele fala pelos cotovelos."
Which literally means "He talks by his elbows."
Can you figure out what it means?
OK, let me help you. That means:
"He talks like a parot - he never stops talking."
When you have a change to practise your Portuguese with your friend of relatives, try to bring these expressions to the conversation. You'll see they will be impressed with your Portuguese! ;-)
