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)

Fast and easy learning continues

I just finished these lessons (6-10) and can already have a basic conversation in portuguese. It's only been 10 days total with this program and the last. I don't think a class in college would have moved me along so quick. Pimsleur is the best!

Great basic continuation

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.

Very extremely good learning method

I am starting to learn this language at a face pace and definitely know this. It takes me 2 repeats for every lesson or chapters. Memory and practice are the key to learning a new language. I am a future instructor and will recommend this to any beginner that want to start learning Portuguese. Obrigado.

effective

if you slow the recording down it is easier to hear the individual sounds of the words. and the replay button is your best friend.

Extremely helpful!

Just make sure you do a lesson every day and this course will help you. Particularly good for pronunciation. They reappear everything for you so you don't have to revise on your own.

It seems good

But will need to go further into the course to see just how good. But now I'm happy with how things are progressing.
