Publisher's Summary

If you want to learn the Portuguese language without any previous knowledge, then pay attention

Are you:

  • Quite busy and in need of a precise, but thorough, resource to learn Portuguese?
  • Traveling to or working in a Portuguese-speaking country?

Or do you:

  • Want to connect with people, while keeping your personality when speaking Portuguese, instead of just learning how to “tourist-talk”?
  • Want to learn phrases that you can use to navigate social situations and help you make friends and new connections?

If your answer to these questions is “yes,” then this audiobook is here to help.

Learning a new language is such an amazing tool that allows people from different parts of the world to connect more easily.

That leads, more importantly, to deeper and more meaningful connections as well.

In the case of the Portuguese language, several countries have it as the official language, making it the sixth most spoken idiom on Earth, with 170 million speakers worldwide.

This means that learning it grants you the possibility of making friends or finding job opportunities in the most obscure places you can imagine.

This audiobook is divided into three parts:

  • The Very Basics
  • Grammar
  • Conversation

You’ll also find many fun quizzes throughout the audiobook that will allow you to practice your skills.

So, what are you waiting for? Buy this audiobook now, and start learning Portuguese today!

It's the most beautiful one

I normally find it hard to learn languages, but this audiobook executed it easy. If you're looking to learn a casual language on audible, I highly recommend Portuguese for Beginners. It's the most beautiful one I've encountered so far.

Pefect to take start!

I unquestionably recommend this title to anyone interested in learning Portuguese quickly and effortlessly. It is well-written, effective, inclusive, and it teaches you all the things you need to know as a beginner: basic vocabulary elements, conversational phrases, basic grammar rules, and so on.

I plan on going to this part of the world after all the corona stuff settles down and this was the first audiobook I chose up to teach me.
The chapters are divided into different topics so you can start wherever you want.

Nice but too long audible!

I have tried to learn Portuguese on many channels. This audiobook is one of the best. It repeats the words, so my vocabulary increases, and I feel more confident in Portuguese.

A Fine Beginning Language Text

Portuguese for Dummies is a well-listen beginner's text for the study of that language or at least the Brazilian version of that language. Karen Keller is interested in her subject and it shows. There is any number of other audible devoted to the Portuguese language, some quite good; others almost mind-numbing. Keller proposes to build her passageway sequentially from the pronunciation of each letter as it differs from conventional English to the reasonably conversational command of the language.

kindle version has text errors on the Portuguese

The kindle version has text glitches on the Portuguese words that contain letters with accents making some words unreadable. Euro symbols, interjection points, copyright symbols, etc.. show up where ever there are words with accents used, which are a lot in the Portuguese language. Seems to be an error when the book was converted into digital format.

A solid introduction.

enough practice for a person to learn a language, but Portuguese for Dummies makes a magnificent effort. The explanations are clear and concise, and unlike some introductory audible, it provides phonetic logography for every new word introduced. It's well-organized, and the appendix and glossary make it easy to use as a reference.

conversational Brazilian Portuguese audible

"Portuguese for Dummies" doesn't stand out from the pack of another language audible; it's just basic conversational Brazilian Portuguese, with a dialog. The vocabulary is based mostly on travel and cultural matters, so it's not going to be too good for anything but the very basics of continental or African Portuguese, especially when you factor in the technical dictionary and pronunciation matters, both of which differ drastically.

Good but below my expectations!

This audiobook is a very good way to get a feeling that you are truly listening to an audible in Portuguese but the content was a little below what would keep my interest to completion.

Not made for audio specific learning

The narrator is brilliant and authentic.
It’s the content, reading lists of random verbs with no structure. Saying the word ‘again’ after every repetition. I returned this before the 2nd hour was up.

I speak 4 languages and am always interested in language tools. This is not a good beginner audiobook

really poor book.

The section on verbs has no English translations.
At times the presenters English is so bad that you cannot understand what they are saying in English
if you like a lot of lists and the history of words in Latin maybe this is for you but I sent it back.
It is poorly done.

Learning by listening and repeating works!

This is the best audiobook to learn Portuguese and the best thing about learning a new language by listening is that you appreciate what you hear when others speak.

Five stars for 11 hours audible!

It will be a wise use of long drive time when you could hear a new and evolving language, that is a foundation for other Latin languages.

Very easy to understand and to learn Portuguese!

I'm a primary learner of Portuguese , and I have found in this audiobook a great root of information. Well structured, straightforward, in my opinion, this is a must if you are studying to learn this language.
