I purchased this introductory course, two hours long on audible.com I then began with lesson one of the same series again audible.com one hour long. it appears to me that lesson one and lesson two, as advertised, are equivalent in content to the introductory course. this is very miss leading advertising and as a customer in makes me lose confidence in the vendor. The material itself is very good for what it is but it should be properly advertise it and not attempt to deceive the customers.
I purchased the Michel Thomas Introductory and Beginner Portuguese courses, the Earbuds Portuguese 1&2 and the Pimsleur European Portuguese course. Each had their pluses and minuses. I found the Michel Thomas to be the most comprehensive course. It has the best explanations of vocabulary and grammar with a few mnemonics and tips to help you remember specific key words. The format allows you the hear the difference between the students and the teachers to help you refine your ear. I did supplement the audio materials with additional written material to help with verb tenses and specific travel words that I needed to learn.
Absolutely brilliant. This method of learning is so forward thinking and fast. It looks at the common route of English & Portuguese and has you building sentences quickly. I am definitely getting the rest of the series.
