No prior grammatical knowledge is assumed, and technical terms are explained clearly and progressively. Exercises are provided to help you consolidate what you have learned and build your Portuguese vocabulary. Although the main focus is on European Portuguese, Brazilian alternatives are also given. Among the many things covered in this book: How do you pronounce words in Portuguese? What do all those funny little squiggles mean? What exactly are verbs, adjectives, prepositions, and pronouns? How do you know when to use 'ser' and when to use 'estar'? How do you use the personal infinitive? How does the subjunctive work?

This book contains 24 chapters on the essentials of Portuguese language, the sixth most widely spoken language in the world. It is designed to provide a complete and compact learning material for travellers, professionals, business owners, and language enthusiasts who need to learn and speak the language in a week's time. It targets the fundamentals of grammar and communication to help self-learners form sentences, develop a good vocabulary, and speak with ease and confidence. It provides a comprehensive reference for important terms and phrases that you can use right away to communicate and start a conversation in Portuguese. While it is focused on Brazilian Portuguese, which is spoken, by about 90% of Portuguese speakers, it is also an invaluable reference for learning European Portuguese and other variants of the language. It may not be evident at first, but a better understanding of Portuguese will ensure that you have more time exploring and enjoying the best that the country has to offer: tourist attractions, arts and entertainment activities, and the local cuisine to name a few (and Portuguese-speaking countries are often highly known for such). But what if you are due to travel anytime soon? Is it still possible to master at least the basics of the Portuguese language if you're given only a few days to do so? Fortunately, it is possible, and this book will help you do just that. This book features not only basic Portuguese grammar rules but also easy-to-understand guides on how the language can best be used in situations including but not limited to the following: Greeting other people and introducing yourself, specifically the proper way of doing so Getting around and exploring (e.g. asking for directions, telling the time) Ordering food at restaurants Shopping And more! And the best part is, with the help of this book, you will learn to master all that and more!

Nowadays thousands of grammar books, textbooks, outlines, references and language guides of Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and French are published year by year. However, all of them teach these languages separately. Here you will find a comparative grammar of the four major Romance languages together based on their grammatical and lexical similarities for you, lovers of foreign languages, to learn and compare Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and French simultaneously. It is an audacious endeavor to find or create a novel way of learning to speak several languages and becoming a multilingual person. It took me over 3 years to finish the book. It consists of over 800 pages, 10 chapters covering all the grammatical aspects of these 4 languages. It includes over 1000 examples, 500 easy-to-follow charts and tables. It contains 138 geographical, historical and cultural facts about Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and French countries.Below I will discuss several reasons why I decided to write this book and why you need it.1) First of all, this book is written for readers like you who are fond of or would like to learn Spanish, Portuguese, Italian andFrench simultaneously or just to get an all-round knowledge of all these four Romance languages. It is designed not only for beginners who do not have an extensive knowledge of grammar, yet need a guide through the grammatical concepts of all mentioned above languages, but also intermediate and advanced students who would like to have a reference book ofseveral Romance languages at once.2) Second of all I spent many years learning these languages separately, which was a complete waste of time before I realized it. This book will hopefully save you a great deal of time and allow you to study and compare at a glance the four main Neo-Latin languages.3) Knowledge of foreign languages is fast becoming a necessary requirement for those who are involved in international business, tourism, culture and education. This book offers you four languages to learn, which will make you feel at homewherever you go, whether as a tourist or businessman.4) Learning several languages simultaneously or one by one will train and strengthen your memory and can help stave off such terrible diseases as Alzheimer's.5) If you have never studied several languages at once before and you like challenges, then you should definitely try it. Because it is a really entertaining and challenging task to do.In conclusion, I would like to sincerely thank you for preordering the book and your interest in it. I hope it will help you improve your languages and become multilingual.
