Reasons for Learning Portuguese
Modern Brazilian Portuguese Grammar. This is the book that will demystify the Brazilian language.
Most recently I learned Spanish and have managed to reach functional fluency and have even started doing freelance English-Spanish translation work while we drive across South America. Portuguese should also theoretically be easier for me to learn since I can speak Spanish fluently and there are many similarities between the two languages when it comes to grammar and vocabulary and many differences too, of course. Plus Brazil would be a cool country to visit one day, and there are more than million native speakers of Portuguese, so it is a fairly useful language. Duolingo is probably the best free resource out there for learning the foundations of a language. I completed the entire Spanish course in Duolingo a few years ago and found it to be a good resource, among the many resources I used to study Spanish. Duolingo is sort of like a quiz format, with multiple-choice, or arrange the words to translate the sentence, but it does also incorporate listening writing what you hear and speaking exercises throughout. I find that Duolingo is great for teaching vocabulary since lessons are mostly organized by themes colors, foods, animals, etc.
My first language is english but I speak fluent french. I'll be visiting my boyfriend's family in months and I would like to be able to understand conversations with the family and speak with them. So I suppose I'm looking to learn basic conversational portuguese with more of a focus on vocabulary than grammar or maybe vice versa, what do you think? Duolingo is great but my boyfriend is also going to help teach me and suggested we get a textbook to supplement. I would suggest buying the book called "Muito Prazer". I've used this book before to teach Portuguese to a friend of mine and he absolutely enjoyed it.
