3.0 out of 5 stars Basic Brazilian 1 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
About 15 hours of audio material over 30 lessons. Starts very, very slowly with an odd and irritating technique of pronouncing the words end-first but gradually speeds up. The technique is to develop and repeat (albeit with variations) a fairly restricted set of words and structures over and over, with hardly any grammatical explanation. It actually works quite well, is excellent for (Brazilian) pronunctiation, and you definitely learn the material without needing repeat listens. The range of vocab is very restricted though, and I felt I really needed better written support material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Course! 14 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
Only 2 1/2 weeks into the course and am highly impressed how much you can learn (and retain) in such a short time! I am a native English speaker and have already had a chance to try out my Portuguese on some Brazilians. They were really impressed with my pronunciation, which is maybe the biggest challenge of a native English speaker. You only do one, half-hour session a day, which is great. They ask you to repeat the words aloud, which is a definite necessity, but I often listen (without repeating) a second time to be sure I've remembered everything. I took a Spanish class previously, and I can honestly say I've probably got more from these tapes already (2 1/2 weeks) than I did in an entire 3-month class. I was a bit skeptical when they said it was designed 'scientifically' so retention is maximized. I now definitely believe this, as my memory is average at best. Anyway, if you are looking to learn Brazilian Portuguese and are a complete beginner like I was then look no further!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good for spoken portuguese 18 Oct 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
This method is very effective to learn how to pronunciate Brazilian portuguese. The recording gives you enough time to repeat and practice. The little manual that comes with the tapes is quite flimsy and only contains practice words and short sentences for you to read aloud. You definitely need a separate method to learn verbs, grammar and vocabulary to speak the language properly.

very good if you are a complete beginner to portuguese. however, if you already know some portuguese, the material is a little repetitive and boring. overall, i would have to say that i recommend it.

I bought this product because I was very happy with intro Pimsleur Portuguese purchased from another source.
It would appear that the comprehensive program advertised here encompasses 3 levels of thirty lessons each, based on commentary of Amazon web page. Actually, you only receive thirty tapes of level one Portuguese, with no assurance that further levels even exist. Hence the label "Comprehensive" is misleading. Perhaps a deal "too good to be true".
I hope this misinformation is not typical of Amazon.com. Or perhaps I still have two boxes of tapes on the way! Somehow I doubt it. See other reviewers commentary on other Pimsleur Portuguese products.
This being one of my first experiences in buying over the Internet, I can only say let the buyer beware!
