Try it here with the transcript​ from one of our Interactive Audio Lessons:

Oi, Paulo!

Hi, Paulo!

Oi, Tereza!

Hi, Tereza!

Como você está?

How are you?

Bem, e você?

I'm well, and you?

Muito bem.

Very well.

Rocket Record allows you to listen to the way native speakers say hundreds of Portuguese words and phrases. Then you can record yourself and accurately compare your speech with that of the native speaker.

It really is a fantastic way to learn Portuguese by increasing the amount of Portuguese vocabulary you know, and at the same time massively improving your Portuguese pronunciation and accent. Rocket Record is great for your confidence!

Virtually every Portuguese word and phrase in these lessons uses our Rocket Record voice comparison technology to get your pronunciation sounding as close as possible to a native Portuguese speaker.

Remember what you have learned

Most of our Portuguese lessons take advantage of the Testing section, which contains our exclusive testing tools. Testing has three testing components, Hear It! Say It!, Write It!, and Know It! all scientifically designed to enhance your recall and understanding of spoken Portuguese.

1. Hear It! Say It!

Training your ear for Portuguese can be one of the things that Portuguese learners find the hardest to master. That’s why we came up with Hear It! Say It!

Here’s how Hear It! Say It! works. A randomly selected audio track from within each lesson is played. After listening to the track you’re prompted to record yourself saying the word, compare the way you say it to the Portuguese speaker, and rate how well you understand what the speaker was saying. A very powerful tool to tune your ear to spoken Portuguese!

2. Write It!

It's one thing being able to pronounce Portuguese words correctly, it's quite another figuring out how those sounds turn into written words.

Write It! is the self-testing tool that lets you find out how well developed your Portuguese ear really is. Just listen to the native speaker saying a word or phrase, then try to write it correctly in the space provided. There's a special character keyboard available if you need it, so you can get it exactly right.

When you're done click reveal, and you get to see how well you did, and get a rating for that word or phrase.

3. Know It!

Now, all the training in the world won’t help you if someone is talking to you in Portuguese and your mind freezes when it’s your turn to speak! That’s why we developed Know It! The self-testing tool that really puts you on the spot!

Know It! pulls randomly selected English words and phrases out of each lesson and prompts you to record yourself saying the Portuguese translation, compare yourself to the Portuguese speaker, and then rate how well you did! You really need to know your stuff for this one but the benefits are huge in maximizing how quickly you can come up with the right thing to say when someone is speaking Portuguese to you!
