  Ah, I just found the site again (the one of the last explanation).

  Take care about the parts in Italic type.  Not that I am a prude in terms of langua-

ge, but there are people that take this very serious.

  The website is a free basic language survival kit that will get you off to a good start in Portuguese speaking while you consider buying language materials, be it from Sonia or from other authors.

    Practice the sound files and try to memorize some expressions. It will all come in handy once you're past the airplane and the English-speaking crew.
   I'd only make a few changes to the slang page. Beginner speakers of a language should approach slang with caution anyhow, and many Brazilians today only see fuzzy limits between zones of language appropriateness. But I still think the following terms should be checked off as taboo or very rude....

 

     And here goes the c) from the previous posting.
