BOOK DESCRIPTION
This course in Portuguese is designed for anyone who wants to progress quickly from the basics to understanding, speaking and writing Portuguese with confidence. Although it is aimed at those with no previous knowledge, this course is equally suitable for anyone wishing to brush up existing skills for a holiday or business trip.
Key structures and vocabulary are introduced in thematic units, progressing from introducing yourself to writing your CV, from booking a hotel room and buying food to looking for a job and a house to rent or buy.
This course is not exclusively for European Portuguese or Brazilian Portuguese. It is based on structures and vocabulary equally used on both sides of the Atlantic.
