Tip 50. Saying periódico won’t get you a newspaper in Brazil

Hoping to catch up on the news from home or the latest sport scores? Don’t ask for a periódico in Brazil. Brazilians read the jornal. If you are looking for more than one, remember the plural is jornais.

Example:
English: Are there any newspapers in English?
Spanish: ¿Hay periódicos en inglés?
Portuguese: Tem jornais em inglês?
