Teacher, I Have a Doubt (Doubt or Question? with Native Brazilian Portuguese Speaker and English Educator, Miguel)

Teacher, I have a doubt… or do I have a question?

— A big THANK YOU to the latest Patreon supporters, Chris and Anna —

Hello everyone. Today’s podcast is a special episode. It is a conversation with a young man in Brazil who is a native Portuguese speaker and is also an English teacher in Brazil. His name is Miguel.

We talk about the differences between the word ‘doubt’ and the word ‘question’ in English. Many Brazilian learners mistranslate the word ‘dúvida’. However, it is not as simple as saying: ‘Dúvida’ in Portuguese is the same as ‘question’ in English. It’s more complicated than that. 

Listen to my conversation with Miguel to learn more. 

Also, this is not just a problem for native Brazilian Portuguese speakers. Perhaps you are from a different county, but it is still not clear to you what the differences between the words ‘doubt’ and ‘question’ are. This conversation with Miguel may help you as well.

For the entire conversation including the video of our conversation and images to help you learn and remember the material, go to For only $1USD per month you will have access to this and much more, including the full audio transcripts of new episodes of The English Sessions and Get the Word! Go to

I hope you enjoy my conversation with Miguel.
