[Course Forum] Easy Portuguese by tiagao_leal

Not sure if I’m posting in the right place! Have just started Portguese starting eith Easy Portuguese - a very short course - and there is a terrible very basic error ! It teaches “do you speak Portuguese” for “do you speak English”!!! ie it gives you the portuguese word for portuguese, not english!! I mean what you want to know is the portuguese word for english when you visit! It is only a very short course with just a few words but please check before uploading and teaching it to people!!!

It sounds like a user created course not a memrise made. Can you provide a link?

It seems @tiago_leal (a memrise user who made this course) is not a member of this forum. Find yourself a new course or try some official courses created by memrise language specialists

Thanks – I didn’t realise that some courses were official and others were not – I’ve just started the official memrise one! Thanks

Hi @Taurina,
Thanks for your report, I have corrected the error on the creator’s behalf.
As some course creators make courses to aid with their own learning, errors may slip in.
When creators make their courses available to others (i.e. list them as ‘public’ rather than ‘private’) they do so out of kindness, to genuinely try and help others with their learning.
It’s nice to appreciate their efforts. When a mistake occurs and is reported in a friendly manner, it will be taken care of asap.

We also have official Memrise-Created Portuguese courses. Unlike the user-created courses, official courses are created by our in-house team of professional linguists and translators.
