Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
This course was good to supplement the earworms course I was also listening to. It has explanations of the grammar, which is very helpful.
What was most disappointing about Cristina Llewellyn’s story?
The English narrator was quite annoying, and condescending, and the 'story' was so contrived that it was also quite annoying to listen to again and again.
Was Quickstart Portuguese worth the listening time?
Good as a supplemental listen, to hear more Portuguese spoken by native speakers, but wouldn't recommend as the only course you follow.
Any additional comments?
It was worth listening to because there are few European Portuguese audio books around, and I didn't want to learn Brazilian. However the narrator was annoying, and the 'story' that the course worked around was so ridiculous that it was annoying too, even though you clearly understood that the story was made to fit the words you needed to learn.
