earworms mbt® Brazilian Portuguese puts the words and phrases you need not just on the tip of your tongue, but also transports them deep into your long-term memory. Simply by listening to these specially composed melodies with their rhythmic repetitions of Brazilian Portuguese and English a few times, the sound patterns are indelibly burned into your auditory cortex. You will have successfully learned the Brazilian Portuguese phrase and have the correct accent ringing in your ears. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing - while jogging, in the car, in the bath, doing the ironing… you can be learning Brazilian Portuguese at the same time!
Volume 1 dealt with the essentials for your visit abroad and was very much ‘I-centric’, e.g. 'I’d like…', 'Can I have...?', 'Can you tell me...?', 'I need…', 'I’ve reserved...', 'I’ve lost...', and so on. Volume 2 has more to do with conversation: 'Are you travelling to... on business?', 'Are you from...?', 'I’ll take you to...', 'What do you do?', etc.
Among other themes, you are also introduced to future and past tenses. The themes follow closely the Common European Framework for language learning, a recognised benchmark of language proficiency, with the emphasisis constantly on usefulness to the learner.
