Description

★Developed by US Government
★Universal Binary - iPad & iPhone compatibility
★Portuguese Beginner Course for those who have some background in Spanish
★Instructions in English

Are you looking to start learning Portuguese and are trying to find the perfect textbook to start with? Chances are if you're from the United States you may be one of the tens of millions of people that either speak Spanish fluently or have learned some in school, and the number of those that study Spanish in other countries throughout the world continues to increase as well. If you are one of these people then you have already learned Portuguese's sister language, and there is no need to start anew. Portuguese through Spanish, developed by the US government and now optimized for the iPad and iPhone, was created to do just this - to learn Portuguese as quickly as possible by first learning how to take the Spanish you already know and simply 'convert' it into Portuguese where the two languages coincide.

Instead of beginning anew with a textbook written for English speakers that don't know a word of Spanish, using Portuguese through Spanish you can simply find out that the word you know as cuatro in Spanish is quatro in Portuguese (and pronounced quatru), tierra is terra, comimos is comemos, leche is leite, and so on. The text itself is of course explained in English, but makes optimal use of the Spanish you already know to learn Portuguese at a far faster rate than you could with a textbook that assumes you don't know a word of Spanish.

Spanish through Portuguese is the perfect app for your upcoming trip to Brazil in the next few days or weeks, or even at the airport while waiting for your flight. If you remember some of the Spanish you learned in school, then there's no reason to start again with Portuguese - just read and listen to Spanish to Portuguese, and find out how you can simply take a lot of the Spanish you know and convert it into Portuguese. With a 89% lexical similarity between the two languages, if you've learned some Spanish before there's simply no quicker way to pick up Portuguese than by using the Spanish you know to do it.

Customer Reviews

Needs fast forward

Good program for introducing Portuguese to Spanish speakers and written very professionally. The audio files of the pronunciation helps very much to make sure you are speaking the words correctly but right now there is no fast forward button which makes it annoying if you accidently press the rewind instead of pause and you have to hear the whole thing from the beginning.
