Great way to learn a language

Any additional comments?

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!

very well designed lessons

all lessons were very easy to understand and learn. The repetition helps to memorize without even noticing.

Awesome European Portuguese Audiobook

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.

Explanation àbout Pimsleur to long.

The learning of the language is fine but the time wasted, about 14 minutes plus, telling you about the Pimsleur method is a waste of time that could have been used to teach.
