    Portuguese Conversation for Adults

    Do you want to practice speaking Portuguese in a social setting? While we cannot physically meet at the Sausalito Portuguese Cultural Center for our usual social events - Sip & Savor, Festa, Crab Dinner, Wine & Cheese Tastings - consider joining us for casual Portuguese conversation. Margarida will moderate the sessions and provide subjects for discussion. 

    There is no charge to participate in this class, but you must register to receive the Zoom link for the sessions. The conversation class will not have any course materials.

    Participation is very important. Students who miss three classes in a row will be dropped unless they inform the instructor and the class administrator. 

    Click the Register button in the left sidebar to register for this free class.

The Story of
Queen Isabel

In the late 13th century during a severe famine throughout Portugal, a compassionate Queen Isabel was determined to help her starving subjects. Legend has it that during her efforts she was confronted by the very harsh King Diniz while crossing the royal courtyard with crown jewels (in some versions of the story it was bread) hidden in her apron.

The King asked the Queen what she was carrying in her apron, and she responded “roses” although it was mid-winter and none were blooming. But when her apron was opened for the king’s inspection, the jewels had been miraculously converted to roses. The miracle allowed the Queen to continue to sell her jewelry to feed the starving Portuguese population.
