4.0 out of 5 stars Really useful for conversational Portuguese, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a British expat living in Portugal for nearly 5yrs and still struggling to learn the language, this is by far the best 'teach yourself' book I have bought so far - and I have many. I have learnt more from this book than I have from the weekly classes I have been taking for years. The famously complicated Portuguese grammar is explained in a way that has finally made it 'click' and I feel more confident in using the language and understanding conversational Portuguese with all it's idioms and colloquialisms, thanks to the dialogues in the book.

I love doing the exercises. They help you to ensure that you have not just read the chapter but also taken it all in and know how to apply what you have learnt. I actually ENJOY learning from this book and I can't say that about any of the others in my collection.

I would give it the full 5 stars but it didn't come with a CD and apparently the CD is no longer available which is a shame and the book still refers to the CD at the beginning. Not too big an issue for me as I hear Portuguese being spoken all around me but might be an issue for others who need to hear and practice their pronounciation.

Although I would highly recommend this book, I very much doubt you could achieve any degree of fluency in any language, much less Portuguese, in 3 months if you're an absolute beginner. However, if you do already have a degree of competency, perhaps to intermediate level, this book will help fill in some gaps, consolidate the basics, clarify the dreaded subjunctive and improve your confidence with the language.

4.0 out of 5 stars What Pouring Lip???, 11 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hilarious! I was about to complain that mine arrived dented - only to discover the 'dent' is apparently the 'integral pouring lip'! How pathetic, I wasn't going to send it back cos it's not that noticeable a 'dent'. Rest of the pot looks good though, and the handle seems to be firmly welded on but I don't think I'll be doing any pouring just in case it does break off - and it's obvious the 'pouring lip' is not fit for purpose anyway.

1.0 out of 5 stars EATS Batteries!, 10 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The batteries is came with died after 2 days so I put in fresh Duracell batteries. 4 days later and the lights are already beginning to fade. Either I've been sold a dud or it eats batteries and will cost me a fortune by the end of the season. Either way, I'm not happy.

Think I was sold a dud. I can't smell this candle at all unless I stick my nose right in it. Very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect hot chestnuts!, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wanted a chestnut roaster for my open fire and wasn't sure about this because everything I've read said you need something with a lid. Well this lidless pan did the job perfectly. I split the skins, put them in a single layer in the pan, waited for the flames to die down and rested my pan on a wire rack over the hot embers. 25 mins later I was munching on delicious hot chestnuts with a perfect soft sweet 'potatoey' texture. Much nicer and much more fun than doing them in the oven. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cushion is flimsy, 22 Oct 2013
Dog loves the bed but destroyed the cushion almost immediately. The cushion is flimsy and doesn't even fit the bed that well. I replaced it with this cushion B003ZG6RTO
which is much better quality and a much better fit! So far, it's still in one piece too :)

Very well made. The dog loves it. Bought it to replace the flimsy cushion in this bed B002S99SKO which my dog destroyed in a heartbeat. It's actually a better fit and will last longer.
