Critical thinking and memory-building exercises blend new vocabulary into lesson progress, allowing you to pick up on the structure of your target language so you can apply new content that will be presented in various contexts throughout the course.

Pronunciation

Didn’t catch that? Hear it again at a conversational speed, hover over for phonetics, or click on the word for an articulated narration. Tone your accent against native speaker audio by activating the voice comparison tool.

Listening

Develop your ear for Portuguese. Rewind and repeat as you need to through listening passages read by native speakers, or read along as you go, and listen for context clues that will help you answer questions that challenge you recall what you just heard.

Reading

Pick up on new Portuguese vocabulary and assess your comprehension through reading material that presents new words in the context of learned material, with optional accompanying audio read by native speakers.
