Product Description

The Pimsleur Approach is based on upon research demonstrating that when words are reviewed at gradually increasing intervals, students retain the words for longer periods of time. Now, goPortuguese has made it easier than ever to follow the audio lessons with both audio CDs and an MP3 CD for you to transfer to your MP3 Player. The eight lessons in goPortuguese are the same as the first eight lessons in other Pimsleur Portuguese introductory programs. Learn to sound out Portuguese, associate the new sound system to the English alphabet, and even learn to read Portuguese without an obvious accent!

    Publisher's Description

    The Pimsleur® Method teaches speaking and understanding right from the start

    For almost 50 years, in over 50 languages, the Pimsleur® Method has been recognized by experts worldwide as one of the fastest and most effective ways to learn to speak another language. With Pimsleur you will learn Portuguese in the same way you learned your first language as a child, acquiring the vocabulary of the new language, along with the melody, rhythm, and intonation of Portuguese as used in everyday conversation.

    The Science of Memory

    Dr. Paul Pimsleur's research on memory was one of his most significant achievements: he discovered that if reminded of new words and information at gradually increasing intervals of time, the learners would remember the words or information for increasingly longer periods. Dr. Pimsleur documented that the acquisitions would actually move from short-term into long-term, or permanent, memory.

    The Reading Program

    Pimsleur Language Programs use the same revolutionary learning Method to teach you to read, as well as to speak. You will start by sounding out Brazilian Portuguese, learning to associate the new sound system to the English alphabet you know. Gradually you will learn to look at the words and see them with "Portuguese eyes." And you will learn to read Brazilian Portuguese without an English accent.

    Learn on the Go!

    goPortuguese makes it easier than ever to use the Pimsleur programs by including the spoken lessons in two audio formats. Now you can listen anytime, anywhere: in your car or at home and on your MP3 player.

    • Eight 30-minute language lessons on four audio CDs
