Sounds of the Vowels in Portuguese.

Hi guys, how are you? In our Dica today we’re talking about the sounds of the vowels in Portuguese!

Sounds of the Vowels in Portuguese

There are 5 vowels in the Portuguese language: A, E, I, O, U and we have multiple sounds for each of them in Portuguese. Let’s see how it works.

Sound of the letter A

Sound of the letter E

Sound of the letter I



Sound of the letter O

Sound of the letter U



So, we have heard the eight different sounds and I hope that you have realized the differences between each of these sounds.

Let’s practice!

Now it’s your turn!

Listen and complete the words with the correct vowels:

  1. C_s_
  2. L_m_
  3. _rc_
  4. C_paca_an_
  5. _p_nem_
