    • Rodrigo Arredondo

    Excellent course to get familiar with the colloquial speaking way!

    I totally recommend this course. Fernando is very good explaining all the topics in the course and provides very good examples. This course will help you to get familiar to the brazilian colloquial speaking way.

    • Jahra N

    Outstanding course!

    Fun with Brazilian Portuguese is a wonderful course. Fernando has a clear and soothing voice, and his relaxed manner helped me overcome my fear of language learning. The lesson content builds as you go along, and soon you will find yourself speaking Brazilian Portuguese with ease. He also included helpful handouts for each lesson. I looked forward to every lesson and hope there is a followup Brazilian Portuguese course, would love to learn more from this outstanding instructor. He answers questions from students promptly. You will love this course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Easy to follow, very logical and fun!

    I found this course to be extremely easy to follow and easy to learn. Maybe I had a distinct advantage as a native Spanish speaker, however, the lectures and the order in which they were put together seemed very logical to me. I was able to apply what I learned during my recent trip to Brazil during the World Cup. I wish all language courses followed a similar format to Fernando's course. The results that I garnered from this course have encouraged me to study this language further.

    • Mike MacDonald

    Excellent

    This is an excellent resource. Fernando has a pleasant, clear style which simplifies the learning process. All lessons come with downloadable pdf notes that expand on the videos. Works for a variety of learning styles. Thanks Fernando!
