What’s up friends, how are you doing? Well, in our A Dica do Dia today, we are going to discuss internet slang! Let’s build a Brazilian Slang Dictionary together and talk like true Brazilians on the internet. Did you know Brazilian Portuguese looks different on the internet? That is why we are going to teach you all about Portuguese internet slang, including ss, add, bj and much more!

Slang and Abbreviations

While slang and abbreviations might look the same, they differ in a very specific way.

Slang words new words or the re-creations of existing words in new ways, typically used by a particular social group, region, or subculture. They are often very informal, and sound weird in formal contexts!

Abbreviations, on the other hand, are shorter versions of existing words or phrases that enable faster communication. But these abbreviations can also be used in some formal contexts, not only informal ones. If you want to learn more about abbreviations and how they work, we have another Dica just about that!

When we chat on the internet, we often use a contraction of the verb estar. So, instead of saying Eu estou estudando Português no Brasil (I’m studying Portuguese in Brasil), we say: Eu estudando Português no Brasil.

Portuguese Internet Slang: Brazilian Laugh

There are also a bunch of different laughs that you can use with Brazilians. And each laugh has, of course, some specific associations, and is used in different situations.

Formal Laughs

Hahaha: The classic one, which is used around the world, is also common in Brazil, but mostly in formal messages.

Hehehe: This one is like Hahaha, but more controlled, as if something’s not really that funny or as if you were shy.

Rsrsrs: The abbreviation of risos (laughs in Portuguese), is used as a shy laugh, used for irony or flirting! It really depends on the situation.

Informal Laughs

kkkkkkkkk: The all-purpose laugh. This is one of the most common laughs. Foreigners usually get confused because it doesn’t look like a laugh, but trust us, it is.

Huehuehue: You’ve probably seen this iconic Brazilian laugh somewhere, right? Used mostly in online gaming, it usually signals that you are dealing with Brazilian gamers.

Random letter laughs: There’s also the Brazilian way of laughing online; random button mashing.
Some examples are: hauahauahauah, kpoasoakaoksapkas, eawihtausggawoashdawirf (seriously, just do it)

I’ve just started online classes with Prof. Ana Carolina & she is the absolute best! It’s my first time learning Portuguese and I was speaking full sentences in the first class. Obrigada!

Small classes, diverse accents, and engaging professors make Rio & Learn Online a fantastic choice! I've been thrilled with my experience at Rio & Learn Online so far. The small class sizes (around 1-3 others students) allow for personalized attention and plenty of opportunities to practice speaking. What's more, having different professors throughout the program exposes you to various accents, preparing you for real-world interactions. I opted for the full-time program, which involves 2 hours of daily learning from Monday to Friday. After just over 12 weeks, I can confidently say my Portuguese has improved dramatically. The professors are incredibly engaging and encourage students to utilize real-life examples, solidifying the learning process. While I'm only halfway through the program, I'm confident in recommending Rio & Learn Online to anyone seeking to learn Portuguese in a supportive and effective environment. I've gone from being a complete beginner (only knowing hi and bye) to holding conversations - and I'm excited to see how much further I can progress! I'll be back with another review after completing the program, but for now: Rio & Learn Online - highly recommended!

Rio & Learn e um novo jeito de ensinar a lingua portuguesa. Puro prazer e muito eficiente. Quanto mais alunos na aula mais vida. Eu aconselho voces escolher as aulas grupais por porque sao interativas: rir, falar, argumentar, compartir uma lingua!

Après 3 semaines que je suis dans cette école et je peux déjà parler portugais. Certe avec des erreurs mais j'ai fait des progrès fulgurant. En plus, du Lundi au Vendredi l'ecole propose des activitées qu'il appelle "Rio Live" ce qui permet de visiter en même temps Rio tout en parlant Portugais et de rencontrer des gens😃 Toute l'équipe est genial et est prêts à aider si besoin 😁

I've been taking the group online courses with Rio&Learn for 2 months. They offer a fantastic way to learn Portuguese and get speaking practice if you don't live in Brazil. The teachers are engaging and are able to adjust their level of Portuguese to whatever level you are at. Obrigado!

C'est vraiment fantastique...RioAndLearn. Les cours de portugais...ça vaut vraiment la peine. Les cours ont lieu du lundi au vendredi, (de 9h à 13h) et en après midi, ce sont des activités libres en groupe. (Soccer de plage, volleyball , excursions, visites des lieux touristiques, etc) Vendredi soir, on est allé à Lapa, un quartier nocturne de Rio. C'est quelque chose à voir! Des rues bondées de monde, des orchestres, des discothèques...Allô les décibels! L'apprentissage du portugais se fait en immersion, aussi bien en salle de classe que dans les activités extérieures organisées par Rio&Learn. On est plongé dans la langue portugaise et la culture Brésilienne.... Obligé de parler portugais....🫡 Je le recommande. Pierre Pedro, Montréal, Canada
