Publisher's Summary

Have you always wanted to learn how to speak Portuguese but simply didn't have the time?

Well if so, then look no further. You can hold in your hands one of the most advanced and revolutionary methods that was ever designed for quickly becoming conversational in a language. In creating this time-saving program, master linguist Yatir Nitzany spent years examining the 27 most common languages in the world and distilling from them the 350 words that are most likely to be used in real conversations. These 350 words were chosen in such a way that they were structurally interrelated and, when combined, form sentences. Through various other discoveries about how real conversations work - discoveries that are detailed further in this book - Nitzany created the necessary tools for linking these words together in a specific way so that you may become rapidly and almost effortlessly conversant - now.

If your desire is to learn complicated grammatical rules or to speak perfectly proper and precise Portuguese, this book is not for you. However, if you need to actually hold a conversation while on a trip to Brazil or Portugal, to impress that certain someone, or to be able to speak with your grandfather or grandmother as soon as possible, then the Nitzany Method is what you have been looking for. This method is designed for fluency in a foreign language, while communicating in the present tense. Nitzany believes that what's most important is actually being able to understand and be understood by another human being right away. More formalized training in grammar rules, etc., can come later.

This isn't a pronunciation book. Thus, this book is recommended for those with prior knowledge in pronunciation of the Portuguese language. However, for those who aren't previously familiar, this book does provide some basic tools to teach pronunciation. The main thing this book offers is the necessary tools to become conversational in a foreign language in record time. As previously stated, though, with regards to grammar and pronunciation, you are on your own!

This is one of several in a series of instructional language guides. The Nitzany Method's revolutionary approach is the only one in the world that uses its unique language technology to actually enable you to speak and understand native speakers in the shortest amount of time possible. No more depending on volumes of books of fundamental, beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels.

Learn Portuguese today, not tomorrow, and get started now!

Best self study program for Brazilian Portuguese

This is a pretty good audiobook to help you get started. I studied Portuguese a few years ago but couldn’t comprehend much. However this program helped me achieve a lot more. Amazing product for the price. Those who want to learn this language this book is a MUST.

Good Approach, Terrible Performance

The author's approach to acquiring a set of basic language skills is quite promising.
However, having a narrator who has a heavily accented, at times incomprehensible, English pronunciation undermines the credibility of the entire program. I strongly suggest rerecording this program with a fluent English speaker who also speaks and pronounces Brazilian Portuguese effortlessly.
The narrator's English pronunciation was totally unacceptable for this type of learning experience.

This is not about you...

What would have made Conversational Portuguese Quick and Easy better?

Not interested in your story --and your self-advertising. I want to learn Portuguese. Your long intro is boring and annoying.

What could Yatir Nitzany have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Stop the long lecture...

How did the narrator detract from the book?

How long do I have to listen to the bla bla befor I hear a single Portuguese word??? I didn't wait to find out.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Any additional comments?

I'm cancelling my subscription to audible.
