These books were perfect. The Teach Yourself Norwegian was great too. The ones that weren't so great was Japanese, Persian, and Spanish. Some books will follow a story with the same characters and some will have completely random dialogues. For example the Hindi one follows Pratap an exchange student from India with his host family.

Complete Portuguese with Two Audio CDs: A Teach Yourself Guide" provides you with a clear and comprehensive approach to Portuguese, so you can progress quickly from the basics to understanding, speaking, and writing Portuguese with confidence. You'll learn grammar in a gradual manner so you won't be overwhelmed by this tricky subject.

This course is aimed at the beginner, and a language survival kit is provided in the first five units. Although designed mainly for those with no previous knowledge, this course is equally suitable for anyone wishing to brush up existing skills. Key structures and vocabulary are introduced and revised in a total of twenty five units. The emphasis is on communication and practical vocabulary for a holiday, business trip or a longer stay.

There is plenty of help throughout: tips and ‘handy hints’ on pronunciation and grammar; a pronunciation chart; verb tables; and two mini-dictionaries, Portuguese-English and English-Portuguese. In addition, plenty of exercises are available with a key so that learners can check their progress. Cross reference indexes at the end of the book enable quick access to the various topics and language points.

The Portuguese taught in this course is applicable to both Brazilian and European practice. The model dialogues focus on structures and vocabulary which are used on both sides of the Atlantic. The same applies to pronunciation. For a model the learner can identify with one of the Brazilian or European Portuguese native speakers on the recordings.

I had to go on a five-day trip to Brazil and the timing didn't fit with taking conventional classes in Portuguese, so I tried this. I spent maybe 45 minutes to an hour with it, a few evenings a week. The lessons were well laid out and easy to follow. After several months I got on the plane down to Sao Paulo, and from there took a connecting flight that wasn't geared for passengers who spoke English. I found that I could (1) understand most of the in-flight magazine ... OK, those are not what you'd call heavy reading ... (2) get to my destination (3) understand what my hosts said to me (4) talk to them so they could understand me.

Disclaimer: I already have studied French, German, and Spanish. If you know French and Spanish you'll have little trouble with Portuguese.

Brazil is an interesting place, even if you aren't in Rio.

If more than five stars were available, I would give them to this course. Some courses specifically for Brazilian or European Portuguese teach you local expressions and colloquialisms that make learning harder for people like me who want to use the language on both sides of the Atlantic. After struggling with a couple of such courses, I was fortunate to find this one. In this course the starting point is the common ground between Brazilian and European Portuguese. The differences are then explained and you can pick what you need depending where you want to use the language.
I bought this course last year and have gone through most of it. So far, I have used what I am learning in Brazil, Portugal and Angola. When I spoke Portuguese in these countries, it was a fantastic feeling to see that I was actually understood. The accompanying audio gives you different voices, which also helps with the various accents even within Brazil (they sound quite different in the north and in the south).
Another feature I particularly like in this course is that it is very communicative. Everything you learn can be used straight away, in authentic situations: formalities on arrival, finding the way, hiring a car, hotel and other accommodation, food, shopping, health, meeting people socially or for business, and a lot more. This course is a superb buy.

This course gave me what others failed to. I felt that the author was always with me, informing, guiding, anticipating my problems and providing answers. Dr Cook must be a very good teacher!
You can go as far as you want, use the first units just to get by or go through the whole book. You can stop where you want and still have learned something. Pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary are very clearly explained. I strongly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn Portuguese, for Brazil, Portugal, and some countries in Africa or anywhere else where the language is spoken.

I particularly like the way the whole course is organised. It progresses gradually, in easy steps, with simple phrases and structures. Chapter 5 is the first revision unit, where you go through what you have learnt in different situations and add more vocabulary to it. Throughout the course, you learn, revise and expand on what you already know. Very efficient. Another good point is the Brazilian words, forms and short texts. Very useful. Portugal being a small country, it is good that when you buy a Portuguese course you can use what you learn in other parts of the world.

What I particularly liked about this course is the useful vocabulary it gives you. This comes mainly in dialogues, then in exercises, then again in other units (there are 25 five units). The vocabulary is recycled several times in different situations so you remember it and know how to use it for different purposes. Very cleverly done!

Fun, easy and very efficient. Excellent audio, slow enough for a beginner, excellent dialogues with the kind of words and structures you need in a foreign country. The language is explained in a way that makes it easy to understand. There are absolutely lots of exercises to practice what you are learning. This is a course I strongly recommend.
