My Portuguese Phrasebook: An Essential Companion on Your Trip
Welcome! Thanks for downloading My Portuguese Phrasebook©. It was firstly conceived as an appendix to another ebook: ‘My Journey on Language Learning’. B-U-T... The number of visitors at www.learn-portuguese-now.com showed me that the Portuguese Phrases page was the 2nd one most visited on the whole Web site! So, why not going straight to the point and provide these visitors with exactly what they are looking for? ☺ Here they are, in 5 main categories. Have fun! • • • • • The Most Common Portuguese Phrases Cognates: Language Learning at First Sight The 100 Most Common Portuguese Verbs The 100 Most Common Portuguese Words 100 Portuguese Flash Cards: The Memory Back Up

On the first unit you will learn how to book a room, get a taxi, order a meal – and make yourself understood in 15 other occasions. On the next, there are 20 classes of Cognates – English and Portuguese words that have the same origin or that are related and similar in some way. There are about 1600 of them within both languages, and you will be able to recognize them in a wink of an eye! The third unit brings The 100 Most Common Portuguese Verbs into the scene, with one example for each case. Following, the 100 Most Common Portuguese Words – a short sample of the ebook ‘365 Common Portuguese Words’. Grab your free copy at www.learn-portuguese-now.com

Finally, 100 Portuguese Flash Cards will help you contextualize the verbs from Unit 3. Each verb comes with two related words for its quick use, as well as a number from 1 to 100. Print them out, cut them and keep them always at hand. (The bathroom is my favorite classroom! ☺) You will realize that learning Portuguese is not rocket science! These can make it easier and faster for you to learn the Portuguese language. They represent more than 50% of the vocabulary used in every-day speech. I sincerely hope your ‘language journey’ may be much easier than mine was. Now it’s your turn: Grab your favorite beverage and a highlighter (if you’ve already printed your copy!☺), throw yourself on the sofa... and join me in this learning adventure! Unless your house gets on fire or the landlord requests it back, read this Ebook in full. Later, choose any unit you want, take a deep breath and dive in. As you know, every meaningful thing in life has a price – and its own value. When I started studying English, I faced several challenges (except a fire or an impatient landlord!) However, true friends enabled me to push forward with my studying plans. That’s why I must care about your progress. Someone has done it for me first. Let me emphasize that I am not the author of the words, sentences or techniques here presented. I am just a daily user. So, if anyone blames me that I’ve used other peoples’ ideas, never mind...

...I surely did. ☺

The next thing to saying a good thing yourself, is to quote one.
