Publisher's Synopsis

The book consists of Beginner and Elementary courses with parallel Portuguese-English translation. The author maintains learners' motivation with funny stories about real life situations such as meeting people, studying, job searches, working etc. The method utilizes the natural human ability to remember words used in texts repeatedly and systematically. Each lesson deals with a few main concepts. Those concepts are presented in sentences that are broken into groups and repeated in a variety of ways, so you get familiar with them before moving on. Sentences from previous chapters are brought back around so you do not forget them. This incremental learning makes it easy to progress. The sentences are relatable and practical so you're learning useful vocabulary and sentence structures. There is vocabulary for each chapter at the beginning so you can become familiar before you start and can refer back to easily. With the translation on the same page, you can effortlessly learn what any unfamiliar words mean. You can quickly pick up new vocabulary and phrases that are used over and over in the book. As you read the book, your brain begins to remember words and phrases simply because you are exposed to them several times. You do not even realize, until you must recall what you have learned, that you have already learned the new words and phrases. The audio tracks are available inclusive online. With the help of QR codes, call up an audio file without manually entering web addresses. Twenty minutes a day is the rule for success!
