5.0 out of 5 stars Great little book, bargain price
This pocket-sized book is perfect for those travelling to Portugal. It's really aimed at holiday-makers (with sections on travel, accommodation, eating out, sightseeing, shopping and health) but it's so comprehensive it would probably be useful to business travellers too. Virtually every word or phrase has a pronunciation guide, which is very helpful. At the back is a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad
It fits in your pocket and is worth buying for emergency communication if you don't have any Portuguese at all but it doesn't always help. The pronunciation guide and the short dictionary at the back are useful but you can rely on them only up to a point. Better than nothing.

This pocket-sized book is perfect for those travelling to Portugal. It's really aimed at holiday-makers (with sections on travel, accommodation, eating out, sightseeing, shopping and health) but it's so comprehensive it would probably be useful to business travellers too. Virtually every word or phrase has a pronunciation guide, which is very helpful. At the back is a guide to basic grammar and a useful 65-page dictionary section (English-Portuguese and Portuguese-English). And the Amazon price is incredibly low. What more could you want?

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 2 Dec 2010
This review is from: "BBC" Portuguese Phrase Book and Dictionary (Paperback)
This was my first taste of Portuguese. It's a good size for your pocket or handbag, but it's just what it is, a phrase book and vocabulary (I wouldn't call it a dictionary). The printing quality could be better, in particular for the Portuguese words. This said, it served me well until I decided to actually learn the language and moved up to Manuela Cook's course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book for travellers, 17 Jun 2011
This review is from: "BBC" Portuguese Phrase Book and Dictionary (Paperback)
If you only need to know a few words to get you through your holiday this book is for you.
I used it on a recent trip to Madeira and found it very useful for understanding restaurant Menu's and ordering food and drink.
Also became useful on a unplanned visit to A&E!

This review is from: "BBC" Portuguese Phrase Book and Dictionary (Paperback)
Used it during my first to Portugal. On a couple of occasions could even communicate on the street and over the counter in a post office.

The phonetic notation is inconsistent in places and is rather awkward to read. However, the latter can be pardoned because having the English alphabet for this purpose is already a challenge for the author.

Easy, compact, well done and efficient. You wont be fluent in Portuguese but confident enough to find your way through many different situations. A precious help and a very good help for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Portuguese phrase book, 17 Jan 2012

This review is from: "BBC" Portuguese Phrase Book and Dictionary (Paperback)
A very useful little book which is easy to carry around. Sadly, we do not speak the language at all so the quick reference, even of just individual words, was useful and helped us to communicate. Very good value.
