Rio de Janeiro - Polyglot Network

Welcome to Rio de Janeiro Polyglot Network!

My lovely RIO



How could we talk about Rio and do not mention Bossa Nova.

This rhythm has invaded Brazil during the 50's and became popular

in the Uncle Sam's country as well.

Soft music, lovely beach, talked singing and beautiful lyrics,

that was the combination for the success.

One of the most important developers of this rhythm was

with no doubt Antonio Carlos Jobim, most known

simply as Tom Jobim. Tom was that kind of guy

who did not care about success, fame or glory, everything

he wanted to do is sing. And, oh, that was more than enough.

His songs has crossed oceans and reamain alive till now.

How would the world be without Girl From Ipanema?









'Olha que coisa mais linda, mais cheia de graça

é ela menina que vem e que passa

num doce balanço, caminho do mar



Moça do corpo dourado do sol de ipanema

o seu balançado é mais que um poema

é a coisa mais linda, que eu já vi passar'



Thank You Rio, we love you wonderful city.

Oi tudo, gostaria de encontrar os amigos do Rio para conhecer e praticar o Português. Eu venho para a área em junho por um mês para estudar. Eu sou um falante nativo de inglês dos Estados Unidos e também fluente em espanhol.
