As I trawl through various text books and grammar tables, I keep returning to this audio book to reinforce my general vocabulary. It's a great addition to the beginners journey towards learning this beautiful language. What makes this audio book stand out is the cute dialogue between the narrator Marlon and the teacher - it's really quite sweet. Highly recommended.
"A Different Style of Instruction"
First, definitely listen to the Sample before purchasing. This is a different style of language instruction, and I imagine it's not for everyone. But if you've tried the drier books on the topic, maybe it's time to try something set to a music track.
The concept is simple. The spoken word is synchronized to the music track playing behind. So the conversation becomes almost like lyrics. There is a nice style of repetition they do here too that also lends itself to learning. They will typically take a sentence ("where would you like to go to eat") and say that a few times along with its translation, and then break up each word/component ("where", "would", "you", etc.) and learn the meaning of individual words. Sometimes they say it slow and sometimes at normal speed.
Again, this style is not for everyone, but I enjoyed it, and will listen to this again a few times to help me brush up on my Portuguese. Worth a credit.
The background music really adds to the listening and learning experience. The narrators do a good job of playing off each other. The lessons are fairly simple but seem to be accurate and even colloquial. I only wish that Earworms had more courses beyond Volumes 1 & 2.
The Volumes are reversed. Volume 1, Chapter 1 is really Chapter 11 on the recording, while Volume 2 Chapter 1 ins Chapter 1 on the recording.
it's the same in all respects
