I once actually spun plates in a French circus as a child and succeeded. So maybe that
explains my HTLAL exploits?

To be honest, doing Portuguese concurrently with French, Spanish, and Italian is just
a minor multitasking operation. It is not like doing things literally at the same
time. I have a seriously bad habit of doing 3, 4, even 5 things at the same time
because I do not like wasting time on one thing.

At this very moment, I am watching El internado the Spanish drama, watcihng
Pauw and SpangaS on Uitzending Gemist, watching the replay broadcast of
a chess event taking place in Azerbaijan in Russian (though I understand basically
nothing) whilst trying to finish up Le Norvégien. It would be hell to just do
one of the things and then have to waste more time doing the other stuff one by one,
just like if one had to learn the 4 Romance languages one by one. I simply do not like
the prospect of having to be something like 70 years old before being proficient in
all of them instead of having started as a teenager and just go all four at the same
time.

I have finally decided to give Portuguese a try after all. I'm finishing my first week and have no interference problems (for now), and my Spanish is GREATLY helping me. Still, I will soon be needing massive listening input (I'm mostly Learning by writing to Brazilian friends and using Duolingo), but I don't know where to find Portuguese input... I would listen to it while cycling or walking. I would thus not Watch a video or have a text. Does anyone have a YouTube channel (to convert the video in MP3-file), or a website to find MP3-files to find A1-A2 input to listen to?

I've been through a couple of page of kuji's log, but haven't found anything about downloadable audios in Portuguese :((
