I absolutely love it. I have been able to get tons of useful information from this book. I speak a few languages, 3 of them fluently, and I truly hope that this book will help me on speaking a fourth.

For those of you who are new to learning languages, I warn you, Brazilian Portuguese pronunciation may seem a bit...different than how its spelled. Also, the grammar may seem somewhat strange, too, but the rules are very logical and explained very well in this book.

This book's presentation is very good, but it doesn't get to the nitty gritty as fast as I would like. It is definitely built for a beginner, though.

The one thing I don't like: no clear pronunciation explanations. The book does not talk about liaison (how words combine), which I find is crucial in this language. Some sounds drop in favor of other sounds, and this fact is NEVER mentioned (at least as far as I've read, which is quite far). The book does have a pronunciation introduction, but it could have been done a lot better.

Let me just say this: if you don't study languages on a normal basis like I do, it can pose a few problems and leave you in the dark. What I tend to do is if there's something that isn't explained in the book, I check for a better explanation online. My only problem is that you won't easily find good pronunciation guides online. Unless I haven't searched in the right places, I don't think there's a lot out there toward writing a concise pronunciation guide for Brazilian Portuguese (which is the same case with American English). You pretty much have to have a REALLY good ear to figure it out. If you really are lost and need help, then you can contact me. I have gmail, and my user name is just like what I'm posting with except for a dot between my first and last name. If you can figure out how to piece together my email from that description, I'd be more than happy to help out!

Best wishes to all of you seeking to learn this amazing and cool language!

This series is really good...I've used it before to learn German. My only complaint is this book was sold as new but looks about 20 years old. Pages are discolored and book is brittle. The issue is with the vendor, not the content of the book.

This series is pretty bad, the way the lessons are set up won't help you learn anything. Hearing conversations over and over with nothing to go off of doesn't work.

For my trip to Rio I used this book to help with saying basic phrases and understanding customs. It was very helpful.

I bought this course to brush up my rusty Portuguese before a trip to Brazil. I liked what I read on the cover. The goal is all-round confidence. The course is supposed to help the learner progress quickly beyond the basics and explore the language in depth. That is what I was looking for. Unfortunately that is not what I found. Grammar points are rushed through and often do not relate to the dialogues. You have "ir" (to go) + infinitive for the future in the very first dialogue of Unit 1. Then you have to wait until you get to Unit 14 before you are given a brief explanation of how it works. Out of the Subjunctive tenses there is only a fleeting reference to the Present in the last unit of the book (Unit 18). What further undermined my confidence in this course was a number of inconsistencies. Just two examples to illustrate what I mean. You are told that you will hear some Brazilians use "tu" plus the verb for "voce". Sentences in the book suggest that it is the opposite. You are told that "voce" is the usual form of address, except in formal situations like talking to people in a higher social/work position. In this case you say "o senhor" or "a senhora". Later in the book Mrs Peters says "a senhora" when talking to the daily help. For the money I spent on this course I expected more and better.

This course in not one of the best. It is very disorganised and the language is not quite right. It does not appear to like the brasilians either. Starting in the first lesson, it says that the portuguese language has an old fashioned way of saying thank you and that you have to watch the brasilian police. If you want a good course you have a choice in this collection. For just a taste of portuguese there is Elizabeth Smith's Instant Portuguese course. For more than a taste, you have Manuela Cook's course. The Instant Portuguese course is more for Europe, but Manuela Cook's is OK for Brasil too. It is very good and has a beginners section, like a preliminary section, a 'survival kit'.
I am brasilian and have been asked my opinion by some friends from the States. When you are trying to learn a language often you don't really know what is the best course for you. It helps to have the opinion of a native speaker. Here it is my opinion, I hope it will help someone.

Normally material is presented; then it is explained; finally the learner is tested. It is different in this course. In the dialogues of unit 1 and 2 you come across vai,vamos,vao plus infinitive. This verb construction is not explained in the grammar sections. But you are tested on it at the end of unit 2. You are expected to produce the answer 'Vou te dizer...' This defies the basic rules of teaching. This is not the only way this course defies normal teaching practice. Material is not graded. A new dialogue may introduce a number of new grammatical features at the same time, not step by step, and only some of these features will receive a (brief) explanation anyway. I would not call this a course. I would call it a random selection of dialogues and grammar notes.
