Comments about Pimsleur Portuguese (European) Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

Love the pace and the the method. At time, specially with Portuguese, it is difficult to remember the words without seeing them written out. I would suggest display the words in the mobile app as they're being pronounced.

Want to Memorize Sounds not words, this is the program

By R.W.

Comments about Pimsleur Portuguese (European) Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

Since I am not able to see the words I'm pronouncing, I have to memorize sounds. This is very difficult . . . memorizing a series of sounds only. Nothing really sticks. I'm still going through Lesson 1 over and over again and still have not mastered the few words it covers.

Language learning made more difficult

By Frank

Comments about Pimsleur Portuguese (European) Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

This introductory course is flawed in that the male and female native Portuguese employ differences in pronunciation. Very confusing and off-putting for the beginning student like myself.

Comments about Pimsleur Portuguese (European) Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

You need to do stick to a lesson a day. Sometimes you feel like your brain can't absorb all of this, but it does.
It's kind of magical to listen a Purtuguese conversation, not understand a thing, than after a 30 minute lesson, understand every word !
I appreciate knowing that I pronounce sentences correctly. That way, I will feel less self-conscious in Portugal when I'll speak with locals.

What I don't like:
It's English to Portuguese. Since I'm French, I would have loved to find a French to Portuguese method.
I miss knowing how words are written, because I have a visual memory. What about adding a pop up in the app with the knew words or expressions?
