Learn Brazilian Portuguese Like Crazy

Brazilian Portuguese is a wonderfully sounding language. What I like about these audio lessons is that they don't only teach me the vocabulary words and grammar of Brazilian Portuguese. But I am also learning to sound like I have an authentic accent. Kudos to Patrick Jackson

Smooth Road to Pronunciation and Confidence

I lived in Portugal for six months and quickly learned that the Portuguese I had been studying prior to relocating is, like this audiobook, Brazilian-based. (I have yet to find a worthy language book or app that focuses on European Portuguese.) While attempting Portuguese using a vastly different dialect and often different vocabulary was definitely a problem, the most troublesome factor was my overall lousy (mis)pronunciation. My every word was filtered through a mix of English and Spanish accents so strong that it rendered communication ineffective (laughable actually— which was okay because humor can take the edge off tough situations). I plan to return to Portugal for another extended stay, so achieving a survival level of speaking skills in any dialect is important to me. For a long while, I thought I would never *get there*.

Things are different now. Learning and practicing Portuguese using LEARN BEGINNER PORTUGUESE continues to be a good experience for me . The stories make the *getting there* journey interesting and even a bit fun. The male and female narrators articulate well without any stiff/unnatural/excessively academic cadences or tones. Also, their slightly varying regional Brazilian accents level up realism that should translate well whenever I am in a Portuguese speaking country/community.

Here’s a recommendation: Record and playback your practice sessions. Hearing your own pronunciation next to the instructors will make identifying and correcting errors quick and easy.

The author gifted me with a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

No accompanying PDF

Not sure what happened but I didn’t get the PDF which I feel would be useful. So far I can grasp the language but am having to use another site to see the translation. I’m a visual person I need to see the words.

Watch one, do one, teach one

I really liked the "scaffolding" style of teaching, especially when it comes to an audiobook. The lessons are easy to follow, although, in my opinion, they're not for true beginners.

An excellent introduction to Brazilian Portuguese

This audiobook is an excellent introduction to Brazilian Portuguese. Although there is a helpful PDF transcript included in the audible download area, this audio program puts its emphasis on listening and speaking the language more than reading and writing which is ideal for me.

What a wonderful way to learn Portuguese!

This is truly a wonderful way to learn Brazilian Portuguese especially for someone like myself who is a complete beginner. What I appreciate most about learning Portuguese this way is that it's an interactive way of learning Brazilian Portuguese that really fine tunes your ear and sharpen your pronunciation. I can't wait to get started on the next set of lessons in this series.

So what do I like about this program?

Normally, I review books, software and audio programs for learning Spanish. After learning that the creator of one my top-rated learning Spanish programs recently released a learning Portuguese program, I decided “why not” get a copy of this program as well. I also bought a copy of the learning-Italian program by the same author.

So what do I like about this program?

Well, I like the fact that it only teaches Brazilian Portuguese. Not only are the voice actors in this audio program natives of Brazil, the narrator or the instructor in the program is apparently a native of Brazil – this really helped to improve my pronunciation and my Brazilian Portuguese accent.

And I prefer to learn with a program that teaches Brazilian Portuguese – which is what this program teaches – as opposed to a program that teaches European Portuguese.

I am sure that Lisbon, Portugal would be wonderful place to visit. I’m just more likely to take a trip to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil to see the carnival than take a trip to Portugal. I also think in most cities in the U.S. you’re more likely to meet someone from Brazil than you are to meet someone from Portugal. Which means the Portuguese, including the vocabulary words, taught in this program is more likely to come in handy.

Another thing that really impresses me about this program is the teaching method. It’s the same teaching method used in the author’s other programs and I’ve found that method to be one of the most engaging and interactive ways to learn a foreign language. Not only does this method help you to develop an authentic accent, but it also helps you to naturally think in the foreign language.

The way that a lot of programs teach a language would involve translating in your head the Portuguese you hear into English. In then in your head, you translate your response into Portuguese – just before you say your response.

But not with the method used in the program. With this method you actually learn to think in Portuguese.

With all the good things I said about this program, you’re probably wondering why did I decide to give it 4 stars instead of 5. Well, there are only ten lessons. Actually eleven lessons if you include the one bonus lesson. In order to give me the confidence I need to speak Brazilian Portuguese, I need about thirty audio lessons. If this program had at least 25 audio lessons I would’ve gladly given it 5 stars.

I still highly recommend it. The amount of audio lessons you get for the price you pay isn’t bad. But it also isn’t exceptional.

Really develops and enhances the Brazilian accent

There are quite a few things that really stand out about this audio program. I always felt that Brazilian Portuguese is the romance language that sounds the sweetest to the human ear. I even like the sound of Brazilian Portuguese more than French or Italian. The most wonderful thing about this audiobook is that it enables you to truly develop a Brazilian Portuguese accent with its teaching approach. I just hope that the author will release more Brazilian Portuguese lessons using the same system.

A Fun Way to Learn Portuguese

I enjoyed beginning to learn Portuguese from this audio book. Once again Patrick Jackson makes learning a new language fun and entertaining. This is my third foreign language book by Mr. Jackson (Spanish and Italian are the other two) and I really feel this is an excellent way to learn. The narrators are great too. It really helps to hear a native speaker saying the words, phrases and conversations. If you're looking to learn another language then you really need to look for Patrick Jackson's books!

Really Good

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was actually a really good beginner book to learning Brazilian Portuguese. The narrators were really good, and I liked how they had accurate accents so that I could try to copy the accent. I particularly liked how words were repeated multiple times in different contexts so you could try and figure out what they meant before the narrator told you.
