After trying and giving up on many language courses, simply because I've lost interest in or just really don't work! I was eager to try this and found that this is different, from the moment I installed it, (which was trouble free and fast) I was impressed by how easy it was to pick up and use and how effective it was. Using the Flashcards you instantly start to learn and associate the words with the pictures and my favourite aspect is the conversation practise where you can record yourself (you need a mic for that but it is absolutely worth it) speaking and having a virtual conversation and play yourself back and you can hear any mispronunciation and is perfect for learning Portuguese as it prepares you for when you will need to speak the language to others.
The learning system is amazing, i've never had such an efficient language course, I've been trying to learn for a while and I don't feel books are enough nor just CDs as you can't interact with them like this. In just a couple of hours I felt confident in many areas, and now having been using it for a few months I'd be quite happy holding a decent conversation with someone in Portugal! Very very impressed, and I highly recommend this for those needing a more interactive learning system, you don't feel alone learning and best of all you can sync onto your Ipod for learning on the go! They've thought of everything, it's fantastic! Well worth the money.
