The best European Portuguese learning site
This is by far the best Standard European Portuguese language learning site available on the web. Each module (rated for the student's level) touches on a different aspect of grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and even culture. The modules are highly absorbable in length and content - you don't get overwhelmed. Variety is the engine that makes the Portuguese Lab so enjoyable as a learning tool. A ‘Vocabulary’ module might introduce a set of words and verbs about a subject (Time) or a real life situation (At the Coffee Shop). This module with be followed up with an ‘Action’ module which places the new vocabulary in simple contexts (grammar), e.g. how to order a cup of espresso. Finally, the ‘Dialogue’ module contains a short scenario in which the vocabulary and contexts are played in a real life dramatization. Not all the modules follow this structure – some contain just a short story for listening comprehension practice and new vocabulary while others are focused on grammar or verbs subjects. Regardless of the module type, each module contains a complete audio file of the lesson, a pdf of the audio file, and exercises (audio and pdf) to review and reinforce the lesson. A new module appears almost every week.Best of all, Susana fully supports the Portuguese Lab by making herself accessible via email to questions (the response usually comes within 24 hours) about anything in the modules. Her dedication to this project is evident in its excellent production quality. Her love of the Portuguese language is obvious from the care she puts into teaching it.
