The judges said:
"Grammar usage and vocabulary are presented in a useful and intelligent way."
"I'd like to learn Portuguese from this book."
"...usable, teachable, and full of cultural materials..."
"It takes great perserverance to continue to publish a textbook in a less commonly taught language such as Portuguese-and to do so and remain in tune with the latest developments in the field is a true tour-de-force!"
"The book and accompanying workbook are beautifully and artfully presented on good quality paper with an easy-to-use format, consistent yet varied so that the students get language lessons as well as an introduction to the various places where Portuguese is spoken, plus lots of opportunity to practice speaking and writing. It shows a lot of thought, preparation and scholarship."
"I cannot see any weaknesses. This text exudes authenticity in its readings: presentation of grammar is simple and concise and exercises are varied and solid." -- Text and Academic Authors Association (TAA); McGuffy Awards judges
