Teach Yourself Brazilian Portuguese is the course for anyone who wants to progress quickly from the basics to understanding, speaking and writing Brazilian Portuguese with confidence. Although aimed at those with no previous knowledge, it is equally suitable for anyone wishing to brush up existing knowledge for a holiday or business trip. Key structures and vocabulary are introduced in 18 thematic units progressing from introducing yourself and dealing with everyday situations to using the telephone and talking about the past.
Teach Yourself Brazilian Portuguese follows the journey of Sylvia Peters on a 6-month trip to Brazil, as she endeavours to make social, cultural and business links for future exchange. The emphasis is on communication throughout with important language structures introduced through dialogues on the accompanying recording. There are plenty of exercises to practise the language as it is introduced, and tips throughout to help with pronunciation and grammar. Two revision units help the learner to check their progress halfway through and at the end of the course. Cultural information sections give useful advice and information for anyone planning a trip to Brazil.
The new edition retains the tried-and-tested structure of the lessons but has been updated with a new page design. Several new features have been added including:
- an English-Portuguese vocabulary to go alongside the existing Portuguese-English vocabulary
- a glossary of grammatical terms
- a 'taking it further' section to direct learners to further sources of real Brazilian Portuguese
The page design has been improved and section headings given in English to make the course easier to use for the self-access learner.
A CD is available separately (0340912413) or in a pack with the book (0340912421).
