This course teaches the language as it spoken in Portugal. It is closely related to, and yet distinctly different from, Spanish. Any differences of grammar and vocabulary found in Brazilian Portuguese are highlighted, and the language used is kept simple but idiomatic.
Colloquial Portuguese features:
dialogues of everyday encounters and situations
exercises for regular practice
a pronunciation guide
clear, concise grammar notes
an extensive grammar reference section
lists of useful vocabulary
a two-way glossary section of key words and phrases
audio material to enhance pronunciation and listening skills
an author introduction to the course
Colloquial Portuguese covers both the Continental and Brazilian varieties of Portuguese. The course makes extensive use of authentic material and illustration and pays particular attention to the problems of pronunciation.
