      This course is such a wonderful way to learn a new language and actually pronounce correctly and really remember! The conversations are very useful and fun. The written work also reinforces the verbal lesson. It really makes learning fun and useful. I would recommend this program to anyone!

        Comments about Port (Euro) Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

        Wonderful course, albeit short. I feel like I can make it through a day in Portugal now. Very handy since most Portuguese materials are for Brazilian Portuguese. I'm learning to get in touch with my ancestral Portugal, not Brazil. A thousand thanks.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Short course. I would prefer at least a 30 lesson course, and if possible a 3-4 lesson course as extensive as other languages.

          The product is easy to use, and when used as advised (a unit a day) it is very effective. The content is well organized and progresses at a good pace. The actors are engaging and there is enough variety that boredom is avoided.

            Comments about Port (Euro) Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

            I didn't need to use the Portuguese that I learned from the five lessons, because most people I encountered spoke some English. However, I felt better being able to say a few polite phrases, such as Good morning and Thank you. Unlike Italian, which I have studied, Portuguese is often not phonetic. It sometimes sounds like Russian to me because of the frequent shch sounds.
            I like the option of downloading a few lessons for a short vacation to another country.
