Hey, all good? In our Dica today, we will talk about writing a postcard in Portuguese (cartão postal).

Nowadays, with the advances in the field of technology, people barely ever send postcards to each other. But on the other hand, postcards are very common to find in many different cities in the world. And it’s so nice receiving a card handwritten by someone you care about. Some would call it vintage hahaha.

Usually, the postcards show a picture of a given tourist spot in the city. Here in Rio de Janeiro, it is very common to see pictures of places like Christ the RedeemerSugar Loaf and the Maracanã.

On the image below, we will learn how to write a postcard in Portuguese:
