    "great way to learn!"

    the methods used in this book are great. they make you work to remember basic, yet useful words, and phrases. anytime I want to learn a new language I use this! I learn during my bus ride or when I'm driving to work. enjoy!

    "Good, but a couple obvious mistakes."

    This is an excellent way to learn Portuguese while driving. I needed to review each lesson several times but was able to understand it.

    "good program"

    this has been the best self study I have used to date. I am able to do one lesson twice a day on my commute. it is not to basic nor overloading. the lessons build on each other. I currently soak Portuguese but needed a refresher as I have not used the language regularly in over 15 years.

    "Easy to Follow"

    I like that the lessons are relatively short at thirty minutes longs. The lesson don't also start with the chapters so that is a bit annoying....I made bookmarks when a new Lesson start in the middle of the chapter...

    ...overall I recommend Pimsleur for anyone wanting to learn a language

    "In my book speaking is first and fundamental!"

    I give the Pimsleur Brazilian Portuguese five stars because it is one of the few language courses that puts you immediately into a scenario where you have to speak, rather than read or learn grammar, in learning a new language. I have learned to speak to an intermediate level the languages of French and Tagalog with ease of remembrance. It has helped me in short trips to France and the Philippines. These courses work the voice and get one talking. Learning the rest (vocabulary, grammar, and deeper levels) come from speaking to natives, buying the 501 Verbs books, and studying the culture. If one is serious to start speaking first, with the rest over time, I can't think of another method to get anyone going.

    "very good"

    OK, This is working for me and I find it good in my continuing progress of n learning Portuguese.
    But that said I have spent a lot of time using another course which give me a lot of practice learning and using the Portuguese grammar.
    I have also learned many words (or vocabulary) so using this course I already recognise and know many of the words.

    This course is helping me in verbalising and speaking the language and being able to organise and see the words in my mind before speaking. My last course helped me understand the rules of Portuguese but did not help me speak it very well. This course is what I need to speak it and communicate. So yes this is a good course - I think.

    You also have the opportunity to go over again and again to practice to your satisfaction before moving on.

    "Very good language introduction"

    This is a great language program! Very well thought out system of repetition, good narrators and easy scenarios to begin with.
