Empowering Method for Learning a Language

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This free sample is well worth your time. I enjoyed learning general themes of the Portuguese language in a refreshing and pleasant format. The audio format is excellent. I was very tempted to use my Audible credit for a purchase before I realized it was for one lesson lasting about an hour. This method will cost over $100 in credits to listen to several lessons. That is a steep purchase price. I searched in vain for these recordings at a local library. I am guessing, that this price is beyond their budgets, too.

What did you like best about this story?

The lesson was fun. I like the emphasis on language as it is spoken in Portugal since that is where I will be traveling to.

Have you listened to any of Virginia Catmur and Paulo Santos ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first one.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Language learning need not be tedious nor difficult.

Any additional comments?

Thank you for providing the free sample.
