The CD-ROM is addictive, as I found myself listening to the words and repeating after them almost every day. They have several things to do to learn colors, numbers, rooms in a house, places of business, objects you would use in an office or bathroom, etc, as well as phrases you would use often. I've had trouble putting aside Spanish pronunciation and wrapping my tongue around the oo's, so having someone repeat whichever word I want to say OVER AND OVER is great. There also are pages with 150 stickers to post around the house with names of household items (you might put the word for "cat" on a stuffed cat, tho), flash cards, and pages with menu items that I certainly will practice and cut out and take with me on my visit to Brazil.
I have also been listening to Pimsleur's Brazilian Portuguese CDs, which are quite good. I do like being able to see the written words (which Pimsleur's doesn't provide) while learning a language, so that feature makes this book worthwhile. What I'd like to see are more CD-ROM interactives for learning language, as I'm sure if they were like those provided on the included CD-ROM (need more words and phrases, please), I would spend hours working on learning the language.
I have used this book with great success.
I'm using it in conjunction with Pimsleur's audio course for Brasilian Portuguese phase 1 & 2 (Get the full 30 lesson courses & NOT the teasers.)
I'm only half way through the book & can make myself understood!
Understanding what other people say is still difficult since most people do not speak correctly.
Ex: We say "Imana gotathe store" when we should say "I'm going to go to the store."
Brasilians do the same things when they speak.
I'm confident that I'll be fluent within the next 4 months by using this book & the Pimsleur audio courses.
By the way; I haven't bothered with the CD that's included with the book so I can't comment on it.
I did not progress through this book from start to finish -- I just jumped around to whatever topic that looked interesting to me that day. (And I don't think that impeded my learning one bit.)
The only thing I didn't like about it is that the pronunciations are not European Portuguese and that is what I'm trying to learn. However, the book is so basic that you can find those words that are pronounced differently and make a notation in the book.
It doesn't matter if you are a visual, auditory, or kinetic learner, there is something here for you. For under $20, this workbook with its accompanying software CD is well worth the money. My doggeared workbook is a testament to that.
