WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Fantastique! ★★★★★
“I have taught French for 30 years and was skeptical about this app until I tried it. It is unique in its approach. When English words are used to highlight a sound similar to a French sound, the learner simply clicks on the letter in the English word to hear a native speaker pronounce that sound… Learning sounds within words is the most effective way to improve pronunciation and this app is replete with examples to help the learner avoid the pitfalls of French pronunciation…”

Great! ★★★★★
“I learnt mandarin as a kid, but always had difficulty with some of the sounds. The teachers had a hard time explaining how to pronounce the sound, and you either heard it and was able to replicate it with your lips and tongue, or you were just stuck. This app is great, because it gives you the English equivalent sounds! I've been refreshing my pronunciation with this, and it really works. I like the example words that come with the sound. Best pinyin tool yet.”

WHAT THE APP DOES

Learn Portuguese the comfortable way.

Systematically build a strong foundation on how to pronounce all the sounds of Portuguese. Decoder clearly presents the phonetic rules of the language by offering multiple examples for each sound and then further breaks down each word into phonetic components. By using carefully chosen English approximations, the app lets you comfortably build up Portuguese words from English sounds you already know.

While others offer phrasebook or dictionary-style apps that stress memorization, Decoder seeks to develop a deep understanding of the language's phonetic rules so that you'll eventually be able to read and pronounce almost anything on your own.

With a carefully selected and limited set of examples, repeated engagement with these words will help you establish connections between the context and pronunciation. You'll also find as a bonus that these new vocabulary items will effortlessly become ingrained in your memory.

LANGUAGE

Decoder PORTUGUESE (brazilian)
Learning Portuguese from Brazil you'll soon discover that it has evolved quite distinctly from its European cousin and also varies within Brazil. However, because of the media influence from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, these local accents have become the most widely understood. Decoder focuses on the accent as spoken in Rio de Janeiro.

Customer Reviews

Less helpful

I was hoping for an app to help me as I sit in Brazil. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be it. This app is probably great for those who want to learn Brazilian Portuguese prior to travel to Brazil, but it's lack of common phrases makes it less helpful than other apps when you are already in Brazil. If you are traveling to brazil and want an app that will offer helpful, common phrases, I recommend going with something else.

Pronunciation explained

This app supplemented other sources by explaining the pronunciations and explaining them well. Not pictured above is a written guide to the vowels, consonants, etc... Which was helpful to have comparison words within an explanation.

Amazing pronunciation guide!

Amazing at what it does:
-explains pronunciation rules
-gives you both phonetic and audio pronunciation of words and sounds
-gives lists of example words to practice the sounds, all with audio pronunciation

It is not going to teach you phrases or how to conjugate. But it's a million times better than my "how to speak" app at teaching me how to pronounce and listen so I use both
