I don't know if there are a bunch of people interested in foreign languages or if it's just me, so if it turns out no one else cares you can just mentally retitle it "Ini's Portuguese thread." But I'm titling it this way so that anyone who has language questions can ask them. I'm studying Brazilian Portuguese via the Pimsleur program at the moment. I'm very pleased with my progress, but it's pretty much all audio and I'm worried that my grasp of reading/writing/spelling may be suffering. Can anyone recommend a grammar textbook/workbook for introductory Brazilian Portuguese, or a series they found useful that might have a BP variant? I fully expect this to cost me a little bit, resources don't have to be free websites. Resources do need to be specifically Brazilian Portuguese, not continental. I'm a native English speaker, and was at one point fluent in Spanish but it's been ten years so I'm probably just a "pretty good" speaker now. I can help with questions about either of those, although I suspect no one here needs English grammar or vocabulary help. If anyone else is interested in Pimsleur's courses, I do recommend them. I have a friend who's done both Pimsleur and Rosetta Stone for various different languages, and she recommended Pimsleur over RS when I asked her. She said she breezed through all three levels of RS' Swedish course, and still didn't feel competent. I'm feeling pretty good about my progress given how little time it's taken. Like many of you, Pimsleur seems to feel strongly about the importance of being able to order beer, so expect to be taught vocabulary relevant to that aim for quite some time. The Pimsleur stuff ain't cheap -- Pimsleur and "Pimsleur Approach" don't seem to be the same thing, and buying the individual modules tends to run about $120 if you buy them digitally (which is cheaper) or $335+ for bundles of several modules. But I think you can get 25% of pretty much any order easily (by taking a free lesson, or just reusing what I'm pretty sure is a permanently available coupon code that you get for doing that), and it's not like Rosetta Stone is inexpensive.
