4.0 out of 5 stars Review 29 April 2009
By Joe
Format:Paperback
I found this book helpful in building vocabulary. The quality of the drawings is excellent and the colourful pages make a nice change to the usual b&w language books.

Please note that this book is based on Portuguese from Portugal, so a small number of words are different to those used in Brazil.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Thousand Words in Portuguese (Paperback) 24 Mar 2009
By Ray
Format:Paperback
Aimed at children but I consider it to be an excellent book for adults when used in addition to the usual dictionaries, grammar and phrase books. The drawings are simple and bold, many are humourous. Smile at the chaos in the kitchen and the antics in the garden. The same pictures are used with their other language books - with changed vocabulary. Link to the internet to hear pronunciation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun way to learn some nouns 18 Dec 2010
By Thomas
Format:Paperback
This a great book for teaching kids (and older kids alike) everyday portuguese words. With a 'Where's Wally' kind of feel it really does make it a lot more fun as you search the duck and other objects on each page. Only one warning however this book is in European Portuguese and not Brazilian Portuguese, so if your learning Brazilian Portuguese you will need to go through and change some of the words.

A really lovely colourful book, which corresponds to the English one, making it very easy to use. Useful for adults as well as great entertainment for children with a duck to find on every page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good 24 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Does what it claims.

I found the guide to pronunciation helpful.

Actually I cannot fault this book. Perfect for children or adults learning a foreign language.

My tip for learning to read languages is to try to obtain a children's encyclopaedia, which in Portuguese is not so easy.

One can even sometimes obtain an English children's encyclopaedia (e,g, Dorling Kindersley) which has been produced in another language. That can be really helpful for language learning.
