What You’ll Learn
This Brazilian Portuguese program includes all of Pimsleur’s Brazilian Portuguese Levels 1 & 2. With this program you start from zero, first learning survival phrases and vocabulary, and eventually progressing to a mid-intermediate level of speaking, understanding, and reading Brazilian Portuguese.

Every lesson contains an introductory conversation, and isolated vocabulary and structures, as well as full practice for all vocabulary introduced. Emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension. At the completion of this course, you’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future; you’ll speak confidently using your wide-ranging vocabulary, and experience the Brazilian Portuguese language and culture with a deepening insight.

Reading Lessons are included to provide you with an introduction to reading Brazilian Portuguese. These lessons, which total about one hour for each level, are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent.

The Pimsleur Method
We make no secret of what makes this powerful method work so well. Paul Pimsleur spent his career researching and perfecting the precise elements anyone can use to learn a language quickly and easily. Here are a few of his “secrets”:

The Principle of Anticipation
In the nanosecond between a cue and your response, your brain has to work to come up with the right word. Having to do this boosts retention, and cements the word in your mind.

Core Vocabulary
Words, phrases, and sentences are selected for their usefulness in everyday conversation. We don’t overwhelm you with too much, but steadily increase your ability with every lesson.

Graduated Interval Recall
Reminders of new words and structures come up at the exact interval for maximum retention and storage into your long-term memory.

Organic Learning
You work on multiple aspects of the language simultaneously. We integrate grammar, vocabulary, rhythm, melody, and intonation into every lesson, which allows you to experience the language as a living, expressive form of human culture.

Learning in Context
Research has shown that learning new words in context dramatically accelerates your ability to remember. Every scene in every Pimsleur lesson is set inside a conversation between two people. There are no drills, and no memorization necessary for success.

Active Participation
The Pimsleur Method + active learner participation = success. This method works with every language and every learner who follows it. You gain the power to recall and use what you know, and to add new words easily, exactly as you do in English.

The Brazilian Portuguese Language
Portuguese is the mother tongue of about 230 million people, mainly in Portugal and the Portuguese islands in the Atlantic, Brazil, and Portugal’s former overseas provinces in Africa and Asia.

Tech Talk
- CDs are formatted for playing in all CD players, including car players, and users can copy files for use in iTunes or Windows Media Player.

          Comments about Port (Braz) Phases 1-2:

          I devote a segment of time each day to the program (Brazilian Portuguese). I've used two other language programs and find this one to be highly superior. The learning method works very well, and the things that I learn are reinforced as I progress. The pronunciation is also a key factor in my positive reaction to this product. I consider the cost to be a very good deal, especially compared to the two competitors that I tried. I am able to use it in my mp3 device which makes it extremely convenient. I recommend Pimsleur as the first choice in seeking a language learning program.

            I use the product on various mp3/bluetooth devices while driving, riding a motorcycle, or working in the shop. It is exactly what I wanted and complements other study approaches nicely.

            I would definitely use other language products from Pimsleur.

            Great method for learning a new language

            By Cal

            from Rhode island

            Comments about Port (Braz) Phases 1-2:

            I've tried a combination methods to learn Portuguese and Pimsluer is very powerful. My only suggestion is the CDs for my car are easier to produce from the Internet version of your product. I never could make a CD from your Internet version, so I have to my I-pad in the car to use your product.
