Great basic continuation

Essy to use and follow. The dialogue is a little repetitive but I think that's by design. Highly recommend, but requires intent to continue with later series.

Very extremely good learning method

I am starting to learn this language at a face pace and definitely know this. It takes me 2 repeats for every lesson or chapters. Memory and practice are the key to learning a new language. I am a future instructor and will recommend this to any beginner that want to start learning Portuguese. Obrigado.

if you slow the recording down it is easier to hear the individual sounds of the words. and the replay button is your best friend.

Extremely helpful!

Just make sure you do a lesson every day and this course will help you. Particularly good for pronunciation. They reappear everything for you so you don't have to revise on your own.

It seems good

But will need to go further into the course to see just how good. But now I'm happy with how things are progressing.
