Where is the toilet in Portuguese

One more important thing that we must teach today is how to ask where’s the bathroom in Portuguese. It’s very important to know that and we don’t want you to feel lost when you need to find a toilet. So, check out how we ask this:

Onde é o banheiro? Where’s the toilet?

Be sure that you are pronouncing it properly.
