$285.00 set of 18 audio CD + $14.50 or $32.50 foreign delivery
Item Code : AUDO4092
Audio Forum. Includes 18 audio CD discs ( = 22 hours), plus a 618-page textbook. This course is a continuation of the course described above. This course is based on educated speech drawn principally from Brazilian sources but is designed to also serve the needs of students who are travelling to Europe and Africa. The guidance of an instructor can help with making such adaptations as are necessary for Continental or African Portuguese as well as regional variations in Brazil. But the course is designed so that it can be learned through self-instruction along with the recordings, so an instructor, tutor, or native speaker is not strictly necessary, though it is of course always beneficial to have one. This course is divided into two volumes. Level 1 concentrates on speech and grammar and contains units 1 through 25 in transcription, and comes with 15 cassettes or CDs and two books; Level 2 focuses on more advanced grammatical features, irregular verbs, expansion of vocabulary, and the development of reading comprehension.

As in the ever-changing English language, Brazilian Portuguese is colorful and ever-changing in its "g?ria" or slang (from the simply conversational to the vulgar)--and advanced students are often only exposed to the formal or classic literary forms of the language. A Dictionary of Informal Brazilian Portuguese, remains a profitable reference tool to help bridge the gap between the classroom and the streets and contemporary literature of Brazil. Beyond students and researchers, this dictionary, containing over 7,500 Brazilian expressions, will be invaluable to travelers, businesspeople, translators and others who are seeking insight into the rich nuances to be found in informal Brazilian Portuguese. Enhanced often with Portuguese sentences to place the words or phrases in context, this dictionary will reward the reader with the colorful inventiveness of the language--and this is not a lot of "bafo-de-boca" (hot air!).

What is The Rosetta Stone CD ROM language course? The Rosetta Stone CD ROM series is the premier choice for students seeking to master a foreign language on their computer. Intended for all serious students, these courses are equivalent to a year of college course study. In fact, these packed CD ROM courses for Windows and Macintosh are the most intensive computer courses you can buy. Rosetta Stone teaches with an extensive series of drills that associate text, spoken words, and pictures. Rosetta Stone teaches you not just tourist phrases, but also lots of vocabulary and grammar in a clear and simple manner. The Rosetta Stone intensive courses assume no prior knowledge of a foreign language and will take the student through the equivalent of a year's college study. Unlike learning in language classrooms, Rosetta Stone is designed to be entertaining and self-paced. You can learn a foreign language when you want, for as long or short a time as you wish. Each Rosetta Stone language CD ROM contains over 8,000 real life color images, plus thousands of words and phrases spoken by native speakers. The emphasis is on both spoken and written language, meaning that Rosetta Stone teaches both the spoken and written foreign language. The interactive design is not a mere "static" course that plays like a cassette; constant student response is necessary and this holds the student's attention and improves retention of new material. Built-in speech recognition aids the student in pronouncing the words as they should be spoken. Dual versions allow for the course to be used on either Macintosh or Windows computers.
