The European Portuguese Language
Portuguese is the mother tongue of about 170 million people, mainly in Portugal and the Portuguese islands in the Atlantic, Brazil, and Portugal's former overseas provinces in Africa and Asia. Pimsleur's European Portuguese teaches the Lisbon dialect of Portuguese.

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)
This is my first time using audible for language learning purposes and I am very pleased. I am a visual learner but the pace and repetition made it possible for me to still learn some Portuguese. There were a few times I had to rewind and listen to certain phrases again but I imagine this is normal. It is literally a foreign language. I would highly recommend this program. Each lesson is about 30 min and they recommend you only do one a day. They do a good job recalling words and phrases in the next lesson instead of overwhelming you with new material each time. Its a productive way to use your morning commute time. Give it a try!
The audiobook takes listeners on a fantastically constructed educational excursion. The book is interactive, allowing speakers of any level to quickly understand basic conversational elements in real life situations that assist in better memory acquisition.
The content is not too long allowing the listeners to set aside time each day towards mastering the language. All in all a great listen, powerfully delivered with strong content.
