This book contains 24 chapters on the essentials of Portuguese language, the sixth most widely spoken language in the world. It is designed to provide a complete and compact learning material for travellers, professionals, business owners, and language enthusiasts who need to learn and speak the language in a week's time. It targets the fundamentals of grammar and communication to help self-learners form sentences, develop a good vocabulary, and speak with ease and confidence. It provides a comprehensive reference for important terms and phrases that you can use right away to communicate and start a conversation in Portuguese. While it is focused on Brazilian Portuguese, which is spoken, by about 90% of Portuguese speakers, it is also an invaluable reference for learning European Portuguese and other variants of the language.
It may not be evident at first, but a better understanding of Portuguese will ensure that you have more time exploring and enjoying the best that the country has to offer: tourist attractions, arts and entertainment activities, and the local cuisine to name a few (and Portuguese-speaking countries are often highly known for such). But what if you are due to travel anytime soon? Is it still possible to master at least the basics of the Portuguese language if you're given only a few days to do so? Fortunately, it is possible, and this book will help you do just that.
This book features not only basic Portuguese grammar rules but also easy-to-understand guides on how the language can best be used in situations including but not limited to the following:
- Greeting other people and introducing yourself, specifically the proper way of doing so
- Getting around and exploring (e.g. asking for directions, telling the time)
- Ordering food at restaurants
- And more!
And the best part is, with the help of this book, you will learn to master all that and more!
