"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!"

"I'm a busy self-employed mom without much time to take formal classes or sit at a computer for online courses. But I need to brush up on my Portuguese for a job application and while my daycare kiddos are sleepingI can listen to this. It's so helpful to hear all of this vocabulary and speech, plys the subjects are interesting. Really enjoying this!"
