Comments about Portuguese (Brazilian), Conversational:

I would recommend purchasing this. Even though it is audio, it is extreamly helpful. We have learned effectively. I will definately purchase more cd's from Pimsleur. I got the intro for the conversational. It would be helfpul if they had the spelling along with the audio. So you know how to spell what you are learning.

Comments about Portuguese (Brazilian), Conversational:

I'm learning to speak Portuguese because I have a Brazilian friend that just can't seem to remember I don't speak her language :)
I've found the Pimsleur lessons to be a great introduction to the language, and I've quickly learned how to have simple, everyday conversations typical of someone traveling to another country, or interacting with people in the service industry.

I took 5 years of Spanish back in school, so I feel I had a pretty strong advantage in understanding the structure of learning a new language, and it helps that the two languages have some similarities.

I've been listening to the lessons in my car almost every time I'm driving alone and find it to be a good place to practice. I listen to most of the CDs 2-3 times each before moving on, but am able to retain it later, so it seems to be working! Guess I'll find out for sure next time I visit my amiga Brazilada!
