thorough short lesson

wish they would speak more slowly and break down the pronunciation of words into smaller segments for better grasp of enunciation and pronunciation

good start

This seems to be a good start, although I'm not sure if it's a native Portuguese speaker narrating the dialogs. I might buy the other lessons as this first lesson is free.

Amazing technique!

I did the first unit and it was amazing! Their techniques really work! Very impressed with this, I think I'll be buying the full language course! :) The only thing I didn't like was how fast they went through it, but there was so much review that I benefited from it anyway.

Speed

Sometimes things moved along a little too quickly at this very early stage. These are 7 required words stupidly required!
