Good for improving your Portuguese Listening skill

Great book for seeing how Portuguese is written in both the narrative and dialog form. Good opportunity to see various verb tense in use. I like the verb tense opportunities because it is a built in review of tenses that are used less frequently because I am a single person.

Beautiful stories!

I enjoyed listening these stories. Most fun was realizing I had understood everything without using a dictionary but there are still enough new, unfamiliar words to learn something new from every story. I can see the stories are written and narrated thoughtfully and skilfully. Thank you!

Very Happy

Thoroughly enjoying the audiobook and nearly finished. It is an enjoyable part of my morning ritual and the first full fledged audiobook I have listened in Portuguese. I know it is helping my comprehension because I find myself laughing or sighing during each story. Enjoying every story and looking forward to the other one.

Excellent stories for practicing my Portuguese and learning new vocabulary. My Portuguese tutor is always awaiting for me to listen her the next chapter. The stories are engaging and wonderful practice. I am an adult learning to speak Portuguese. I am thankful for this audiobook.

Nice way to use what you've learned

I took an online Portuguese course and felt pretty good about what I learned, but I desperately needed stories to read and listen so that I would not forget it all. The stories are fantastic and give valuable life lessons. I've now started reading them by the usueful E-book included. Highly recommend

A great way to build up vocabulary

The stories are very entertaining. I have had to work hard to understand them, but that's just because I'm still learning Portuguese.
