      "Very helpful for learning European Portuguese"

      I purchased the Michel Thomas Introductory and Beginner Portuguese courses, the Earbuds Portuguese 1&2 and the Pimsleur European Portuguese course. Each had their pluses and minuses. I found the Michel Thomas to be the most comprehensive course. It has the best explanations of vocabulary and grammar with a few mnemonics and tips to help you remember specific key words. The format allows you the hear the difference between the students and the teachers to help you refine your ear. I did supplement the audio materials with additional written material to help with verb tenses and specific travel words that I needed to learn.

      "Excellent way to learn"

      The cognate method rocks. Big vocabulary available with a few patterns. I like the teacher student model. I am getting the next lesson too.
