Publisher's Summary

Get By in Portuguese is devised specifically for travellers.

    The English narrator and two native Portuguese speakers introduce the key phrases and vocabulary. In each section there are a couple of short dialogues where you can check out the language you have heard, with questions to focus your listening. At the end of each section there is the opportunity to practise what you've learned in a guided dialogue 'as if you were there'.

    This download comes with a free booklet, which gives the key phrases and dialogues as they appear on the audio. Download the accompanying reference guide.
