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.

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

I highly recommend this

I have several audio programs from this author and I find that they are very helpful for learning foreign languages. I still find it necessary to get practice with native speakers either online or offline but these audio programs are what I consider my language-learning foundation.

Happy to have found this program


I am very happy to have stumbled upon this audio course for learning Brazilian Portuguese. I am sure that I am not the only one who almost didn't buy it when noticing that the author's name did not appear to be a native speaker of Brazilian Portuguese. Like a lot of people, I am tired of buying learning-Portuguese programs that are ineffective because they were not made by a native speaker of the language. But don't let that stop you like it almost stopped me. The narrator and all the actors in this course are native speakers of Brazilian Portuguese which I can say helped me immensely with understanding spoken Portuguese and having less of a gringoish accent when speaking Portuguese.

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.

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.

Almost excellent

Great learning tool with excellent format. Annoying that the two voices so different in their pronunciation of “de” without explanation. Also unused and then unexplained words are sometimes used in the conversations. Overall though well worth the effort as easy way to learn.
