The European Portuguese Language
Portuguese is the mother tongue of about 170 million people, mainly in Portugal and the Portuguese islands in the Atlantic, Brazil, and Portugal's former overseas provinces in Africa and Asia. Pimsleur's European Portuguese teaches the Lisbon dialect of Portuguese.
"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)

Great way to learn a language
This is my first time using audible for language learning purposes and I am very pleased. I am a visual learner but the pace and repetition made it possible for me to still learn some Portuguese. There were a few times I had to rewind and listen to certain phrases again but I imagine this is normal. It is literally a foreign language. I would highly recommend this program. Each lesson is about 30 min and they recommend you only do one a day. They do a good job recalling words and phrases in the next lesson instead of overwhelming you with new material each time. Its a productive way to use your morning commute time. Give it a try!
