4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to the language
I bought this package as I was going to Brazil and was aware that in many places the locals spoke no english. I did the course for about 3 weeks before I left. While the course isn't easy I found that I learnt a lot more Portuguese than I realised and could comprehend enough of the language to get around (book hotel rooms, eat dinner, get to places etc). The one...

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing - key elements missing
Although the basic structure of this package seems good - as I guess has been developed for various packages, this version for Brazilian Portuguese seems to have skimped on content. None of the 3 'Titles' to choose from have any conversational content to them - that is the interactive dialogue facility - (a key feature of the advertised package). I don't even know what it...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to the language, 6 Nov 2005
This review is from: Linguaphone In Action Brazilian Portuguese 2.0 (CD-ROM)
I bought this package as I was going to Brazil and was aware that in many places the locals spoke no english. I did the course for about 3 weeks before I left. While the course isn't easy I found that I learnt a lot more Portuguese than I realised and could comprehend enough of the language to get around (book hotel rooms, eat dinner, get to places etc). The one area the course falls down is on conversational portuguese (how are you? what's your name? etc) so you might want to buy a phrase book as well.

This review is from: Linguaphone In Action Brazilian Portuguese 2.0 (CD-ROM)
Although the basic structure of this package seems good - as I guess has been developed for various packages, this version for Brazilian Portuguese seems to have skimped on content. None of the 3 'Titles' to choose from have any conversational content to them - that is the interactive dialogue facility - (a key feature of the advertised package). I don't even know what it does as in this package that element is completely redundant. The videos have such bad sound they are unlistenable. And there is also no area where you can concentrate on the kind of phrases a visitor in Brazil is likely to need - hotel rooms etc. It is much more aimed at students of the language, than visitors. That said, being able to highlight the words of each sentence and hear the word repeatedly is a good feature, but the minimum requirement you would expect with computer learning really...

This review is from: Linguaphone In Action Brazilian Portuguese 2.0 (CD-ROM)
I've been trying to learn Brasilian Portuguese for a while, but no one system seemed to be working just how it does now.While you study, your brain simultateously absorb the words so later is easy to remember.I'm completely satisfied wih this and strongly recommend it to anyone who hasn't never learned portuguese or anyone with need to improve it's knowledge of leanguage.
