      "Real fun."

      The lesson was interesting and engaging. I was taught so much in such a short space of time.

      "Suck it and see"

      The Michel Thomas system for learning languages is so quick, you'll know within the length of this sample whether or not the method suits you. Audible offer these snapshots for free, so you can try out not only languages you currently need or want to learn but some you might always have fancied learning. The method quickly has you speaking accurately in your chosen language with no writing, exercises or book-learning. It relies on repetition and springboarding off what you already know, using your own language as a foundation. Try it for yourself.

      "Empowering Method for Learning a Language"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      This free sample is well worth your time. I enjoyed learning general themes of the Portuguese language in a refreshing and pleasant format. The audio format is excellent. I was very tempted to use my Audible credit for a purchase before I realized it was for one lesson lasting about an hour. This method will cost over $100 in credits to listen to several lessons. That is a steep purchase price. I searched in vain for these recordings at a local library. I am guessing, that this price is beyond their budgets, too.


      What did you like best about this story?

      The lesson was fun. I like the emphasis on language as it is spoken in Portugal since that is where I will be traveling to.


      Have you listened to any of Virginia Catmur and Paulo Santos ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

      This is the first one.


      If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

      Language learning need not be tedious nor difficult.


      Any additional comments?

      Thank you for providing the free sample.
