Courses

Brazilian Portuguese Deluxe Course
$25 off CD version, Levels 1 and 2!
  Huge Savings on Level 1 Download! - was $49 now $7!
This course is based on educated speech drawn principally from Brazilian sources but is designed to also serve the needs of students who are travelling to Europe and Africa. The guidance of an instructor can help with making such adaptations as are necessary for Contintental or African Portuguese as well as regional variations in Brazil. But the course is designed so that it can be learned through self-instruction along with the recordings, so an instructor, tutor, or native speaker is not strictly necessary, though it is of course always beneficial to have one. This course is divided into two volumes. Level 1 concentrates on speech and grammar and contains units 1 through 25 in transcription, and comes with 15 CDs and a book; Level 2 focuses on more advanced grammatical features, irregular verbs, expansion of vocabulary, and the development of reading comprehension, and contains units 26-48 in transcription, and comes with 17 CDs and a book. And we also have Brazilian Portuguese Deluxe in a Book and MP3 Audio Edition, with a regular book and an MP3 audio CD-ROM!

Foreign Service Method From Spanish to Portuguese
(Now available in a Digital edition (MP3/PDF)!)
This course is designed for native speakers of American English who have a good command of Spanish, and want to learn Portuguese. Since the languages are similar many students get confused by the similarities and end up mispronouncing and jumbling words. This course explains the differences and allows the student to leverage their knowledge of Spanish to help them learn Portuguese faster. The content in the course includes units on sounds (Spanish vowels with counterparts in Portuguese, Portuguese vowels not occurring in Spanish, diphthongs, and consonants); grammar (word order, negation, contraction, verbs, and nominals, with focus on the differences between the two languages); hints on vocabulary transfer (sounds, words endings, and false cognates); and supplementary pronunciation exercises. The tapes illustrate the features of spoken Portuguese that are included in the text. With 2 tapes or CDs and a book. And now Spanish to Portuguese is available in a Digital Edition on CD-ROM, with the recordings in MP3 audio files and the text in PDF format!
