What ! you want to learn Portuguese...you really do?...& you need my help to learn this...you thought i would give you the secret...the way i did? man, come on how can i tell you, how i learned, hmm, d'nt insist i really can't tell you directly, the problem is that, i hold a noble character in few eyes :D
Ok...d'nt go out crazy, i will give you two options what ever you select...
1. Hard without fun:
For this way you don't need to be inside a Portuguese speaking country, you can learn by taking admission in a Language training center, where you can learn the basics of this language, even can get some nice conversation session, where you can practice your language expertize...I myself tried this one when i reached Maputo, but it was not working for me :( i am not sure if it works for you...
2. Easy with fun:
Make a Mozambican girl friend who can hardly understand English, so initially you starts with just telling her something with hands moves...sometime she will pick your English words...even sometime you would be able to understand a 5% of her speech she do :*
This way is too fast in learning with pleasure, most of (upto 99.99%) Pakistanis & Indians in Mozambique do try this...i am sure a positive result after trying it. This option has a side-effect just as explained below...
