Synopsis:

Working Portuguese for Beginners enables English speakers with no prior knowledge of Brazilian Portuguese to develop the basic communication skills and cultural knowledge needed to visit Brazil and to function in a work environment in which Portuguese is spoken. This language program presents not only all the situations and grammar normally covered in an elementary Portuguese textbook but also includes situations set in a business context in every lesson.

Major Features:
• Twenty-four lessons, the last four concluding with a special independent project in which the student applies the language to his or her area of professional interest
• Clear objectives for acquiring language skills, grammar, and cultural understanding
• Lessons cover the important basics normally covered in any beginning Portuguese textbook such as introductions and greetings, counting, making travel plans, taking public transportation, and asking for directions
• Lessons cover business tasks such as negotiating a contract, presenting a new product, writing a business memo -- all in Brazilian Portuguese
• Lessons provide dialogues and vocabulary lists for reading and listening, grammar, cultural reading, and interactive homework
• Portuguese-English and English-Portuguese glossaries offer additional help with vocabulary
• Course can be combined with affordable online access to self-grading exercises (available through Quia.com, $24.95 per student for 18 months of access)
