Publisher's Summary

Learn to speak and understand Brazilian Portuguese with Pimsleur language programs  

Portuguese is the mother tongue of about 230 million people, mainly in Portugal and the Portuguese islands in the Atlantic; Brazil; and Portugal's former overseas provinces in Africa and Asia. Pimsleur's Brazilian Portuguese teaches the São Paulo metropolitan accent. 

Pimsleur equals success. Just one 30-minute lesson a day gets you speaking and understanding like no other program. Portuguese (Brazilian) Level 1 Lessons 11-15 builds on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension and on learning to speak Brazilian Portuguese. 

These units contain reading lessons designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A reading booklet PDF to be used with the audio lessons is included. 

This third edition (© 2014) is a new edition of Portuguese (Brazilian) Level 1.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)

Excellent!

I listen to the lessons daily on my drive into work, and look forward to the lessons. My boyfriend is from Brazil and he's impressed with my pronunciation and speed with which I've been learning the language. I'm not a fast learner by any means, and have to listen to a lesson twice sometimes, but I'm thoroughly enjoying the way the lessons are formatted. Excellent job with this format of learning.

My Pimsleur's experience.

Helps a lot with fundamentals so far. My wife is Brazilian, she is excited about my improvement. I'm still on Book one chapter 15. I have a long way to go, but feeling confident with Pimsleur's, program.

Good 3rd installment

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.

a great way to learn the language

Would you listen to Portuguese (Brazilian) Phase 1, Unit 11-15 again? Why?

I listen to each lesson several times, in order to review what I've learned and to keep it fresh in my mind.

What does Pimsleur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Learning the proper pronunciation!
