Description

Includes 30 lessons and reading instruction (16 hours) as MP3 download, plus PDF user's guide and reading booklet

Portuguese is the mother tongue of about 170 million people, mainly in Portugal and the Portuguese islands in the Atlantic, Brazil, and Portugal's former overseas provinces in Africa and Asia. Pimsleur's Brazilian Portuguese teaches the São Paulo dialect of Brazilian Portuguese.

The Pimsleur® Method is scientifically proven to be your fastest route to near-native fluency. Brazilian Portuguese Phase 3 includes another 15 hours of spoken language practice and one additional hour of reading instruction, and is designed to be used after completion of Phases 1 and 2.

  • The beginning lessons of Phase 3 offer you the chance to expand your vocabulary and increase your fluency to an even higher level. You’ll gain experience participating in many informal and some formal discussions on practical, social, and semi-professional topics. You’ll skillfully form longer, more complex sentences, and most importantly, you’ll find yourself being understood, even by native speakers unused to dealing with foreigners. You’ll be able to join in conversations effortlessly, confident of being understood.
  • In the next 10 lessons of Phase 3 your skills will show ever-increasing mastery of the language. Speaking with grace and complete naturalness, you’ll enjoy fluid conversations on many new subjects. Delving deeper into cultural norms and situations, you’ll find yourself responding effortlessly, and able to choose from a wide accumulation of vocabulary and structures.
  • In the final 10 lessons of Phase 3, you’re nearing fluency with agile responses, and a natural-sounding, near-native accent. You’re able to utilize the language in subtle ways, and speak using past, present, and future tenses. Self-confidence soars as you experience the language and culture; no longer as a foreigner, but with a deepening insight into an expanding new world.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading Brazilian Portuguese and to provide vocabulary. Before you know it, you’ll be reading Portuguese with the ease and flexibility of a native speaker. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

      Comments about Port (Braz) Phase 3, Units 1-30:

      This is now the third series I've purchased with Pimsleur and I love it. I've taken Portuguese I, II, and now III. By the time I finished Portuguese I, I took a trip to Brazil and was immediately surprised by how much Portuguese knew. I wasn't only able to understand it, but I was able to reply and converse. The subjects that are practiced throughout the CD's are simple yet practical.

      I definitely recommend Pimsleur to everyone trying to learn a second or third language.

      Comments about Portuguese (Brazilian) III, Comprehensive:

      I really like the Pimsleur system. I have finished Pimsleur I and II and have ordered III. I love it because it is a wonderful complement to book/class learning. The voices and pronunciations of the native teachers is invaluable. It is very helpful with expressions and with repeating the word(s) frequently enough so that you do learn. I spend my time efficiently in the car listening (and learning) Portuguese. My husband listens to them in the car and on his laptop. The 30 minute lessons are perfect. If you spend a fair bit of time driving in the car...such as to and from work....it is a really great way to spend 30 minutes/60 minutes a day learning a new language.

      In my opinion, the Pimsleur system cannot be the only system used. I say this because if I had not had been taking classes and/or doing book/computer work (Rosetta Stone, Portuguese workbooks) I would not have benefited as much as I have with the Pimsleur system. Pimsleur is great because you "hear" the language and you can repeat the language, but you are not seeing how the word is spelled or how the verb is conjugated. I think a learner would be very confused at times if they only used the Pimsleur system. I highly recommend the Pimsleur system; however, it should be used as a complement to workbooks/computer work/class.

      If you are serious about learning a new language, then don't hesitate to use many ways of learning: hearing it, seeing it, writing it and speaking it. Pimsleur is great for the hearing it and speaking it..
