This audiobook is one of the better ones I have purchased over the last couple of years. Good audio quality. The native speaker has a clear Brazilian accent. There are pauses after the speaker, so you can try the word or phrase yourself. Then the word or phrase is repeated, so you can evaluate your pronunciation. Definitely worth the time and money.
I'm listening to the CDs again and again, as it is the principle of this method. the choice of words, sentences et sequence used is really good.I'm starting Protuguese from scratch and I have the feeling that I'm progresing at an unexpected pace.
For those who, like me, want to use the wasted time in traffic jams, learning the enjoyable way a new language, this method is perfect. Espcially if you start from scratch ,which is my case. The method is based on repetition of words and sentences in Portuguese after the English translation. The repetition make you start become familiar with simple sentence structure and you start building up reflexes in this foreign language. Learning Portuguese in your car ! It was exactly the type of product/method I was looking for!
This is all I want to say. Can't think of 15 words. The min review word count requirement is ridiculous. It's too difficult to rate books this way.
I have listened to a chapter a day constantly and very useful phrases are included in this book, pronunciation is great but speed is far far too fast, it jumps too much between one word or phrase to a full-fast sentence, I was infuriated halfway through as it started throwing curve balls in that I just couldn't follow, my English brain can only process about 5 words in one go and these need to be slower so I could only get half of the sentence or maybe even one word! also didn't seem to be any pattern or progression to the chapters
