5.0 out of 5 stars Glad I bought it for the World Cup, 28 Feb 2004
This review is from: Teach Yourself Portuguese: Coursebook & 2 CDs (Paperback)
I am a soccer fan and Portugal Euro 2004 this coming June-July is a good excuse for an extended holiday in Portugal. I have been to the country several times and at one stage started attending Portuguese evening classes but gave up. I also have some Portuguese friends but their English is better than my Portuguese which up to now has been very rudimentary. I bought this course as soon as it came out, determined to have a good go at learning the language. Having a little Portuguese already, the first units were something to sail through. Then I came across new words and phrases to learn. A little every (or nearly every) evening and I am quite happy with my progress. I am also quite happy with the book (and the CDs). The teaching is good and you feel comfortable with the method, all very logical and realistic. It was a surprise (a good surprise) to find out that this course covers situations like buying tickets for the stadium. For the World Cup I couldn't wait for my trip to Portugal to buy the tickets but I am still hoping to impress my friends in Lisboa (the proper name for Lisbon) with my Portuguese, now greatly improved.
