"This podclass has helped me immensely over the last 4 years of self-study and in between occasional visits to lusophone contries. I am so comfortale with the format of the lessons, the repeated backup in English, the required repetition that permits me to practice imitating her accent, AND the massively useful last section that covers how one particular word in English in used in everyday conversation. THAT is something you will not get out of a textbook!"
