I still consider the Pimsleur 90-lesson Portuguese course to be the best. I would still recommend that over the Semantica or any other course mentioned above. Pimsleur, however, is very expensive.
This works. The lessons are well structured and there's a lot of appropriate repetition. However, Paul's fake American shtick can get annoying with both the fake accent and the bumbling idiot nonsense. I don't think an English language program for Brazilians with a fake Brazilian character being played by an American speaking fake broken English and playing a Brazilian stereotype would work without offending and annoying Brazilians. This is a really good program so just put aside the anti-American nonsense and try to learn the language.
They break everything down and also conjugate the main verbs for each section. There are also sections on vocabulary, verbs, telling time and the alphabet.
I've also been using the book "Portuguese in 10 Minutes a Day (also very good.)
The videos in this package are a fantastic adjunct to the materials I've been using.
I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to learn Brasilian Portuguese!
The podcasts are also a great way to watch the series, available from [..]
