    "easy and fun"

    This is such an easy way to learn the basics of a language, it's given me a lot more confidence in travelling. It just teaches phrases though so not the course for someone who wasn't a more emersed and in depth language experience

    "patronising but effective!"

    in really enjoyed this as an absolute beginner. if you can get past the mildly patronising format it is really really useful. and although I say patronising, that is really what you need when you start a new language.

    "A good quick fix"

    Like any of the language courses, you get out what you put in. This course uses a music background with a native and English speaker going over Portuguese phrases and words. The course tends to provide a sentence, in English, and then in Portuguese and then breaks down all the words in the sentence, and the pronunciations for the words. The course is similar to the other earworms courses, and if you liked one of the others I imagine you'll like this one.



    It's not a bad idea, although the tunes are not that great, I find that I can recall some of the sentences. A good supplement for learning, or for a quick fix before heading on holiday but it is not a good standalone course.

    "Great introduction"

    This is a great introdcution to Portugese and covers all the basics. I found the language quite hard but the music and format of the audio was great.

    "Ear Worms"

    I like the concept of this c.d. learning software a lot. I have used it and can say it definitely helps but to be sure to get the pronounciation correct it is best to have a Portuguese friend online to help verify sounds, and / or other software to listen and compare. It is a cool method to learn and I love the way it sounds music wise and rythmically. I am buying the French one for my 6 year old because she likes the Portuguese one so much and has already taken a couple years of french.
