Would you consider the audio edition of Rapid Portuguese (European): Volumes 1 & 2 to be better than the print version?
I don't think there is a print version.
What did you like best about this story?
This is a really palatable introduction to Portuguese, for those people who are prepared to listen to it every day. I listened while I did housework or gardening, and was amazed how much I picked up.
What about Marlon Lodge’s performance did you like?
The 2 performers have pleasant voices that are easy to listen to again and again, which is crucial, because that is how this method works. They seem to have a good rapport with each other, and the conversation sounds natural even though it is clearly scripted. The music that accompanies the text is very helpful. Sometimes the words are repeated to the rhythm of the music, and that helps you to remember.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Not applicable. It isn't meant to listen to in one sitting.
Any additional comments?
I've tried several Portuguese audio courses, and this is by far the best. Easy to listen to and easy to pick up, and you can get a transcript online for those who like to know how words look as well as sound. When I went to Portugal 8 months after starting to listen to this course, I was amazed at how much I had picked up. I didn't expect to be able to speak, but I understood loads, which was great. I wish there were further levels in this course.

this is a joy to listen to, an easy way to learn. I went to Portugal and yes I understood and could speak the simple sentences. You get a good understanding of the pronunciation.

to learn you must repeat a lot, and with the background "music" you dont feel too worried about how you sound
