I love the dialogues. They help you develop your listening and speaking skills rocket fast. Unlike the Pilmsleur approach that I have also used, Rocket languages also has the reinforcement activities where you get additional listening, speaking and writing practice so you learn to spell correctly and pay attention to accent marks and special characters.
I am giving it a 4 out of 5 because in my opinion the price is pretty steep (I can get the Pilmsleur CDs for Portuguese level 1 for $34 in ebay) and I feel for that price it should also include some grammar videos with activities and reading comprehension to make it more well rounded.

Really happy with this product. My girlfriend is Brazilian and I've been looking for a good starter course in Portuguese. I'm only halfway through module one, but everything about this course has been excellent so far. The choice of contents, the quality of the material, the structure and delivery (including the mobile apps), and the feedback and review mechanisms have all been fantastic. The price is also very reasonable for what you get, and is far more competitively priced compared to the competition. The Portuguese course seems to be only suitable for beginners, but it's perfect to get me started.

I've been spending almost half a year in Brazil for 3 years and my language skills are minimal. I moved here permanently and got married two months ago, time to get serious. The two live teachers I've tried just haven't worked out, this looks promising! Looking forward to cracking the language nut!

I like the fact that there are native speakers who take time to go through the language for easier understanding and comprehension. The lessons so far are quite generous in the amount of time given and allow you to replay and download if you need to do that.

Just after 2 weeks I can already hold basic conversation with my wife in Portuguese. She is fluent in Portuguese and very impressed in 2 weeks with how much I already know. I would definitely recommend the Rocket Language Portuguese program.

I've been using Rocket for the past month along with a couple other language programs (Pimsleur, transparent, Duolingo, and Memrise) to boost my learning of Portuguese. Overall, I really like Rocket. The ability to download the audio is a big help as I commute a lot. The audio training is not as in depth as Pimsleur, but it is very good. The variety of lessons and the ability to jump around is great. The leader board helps to provide incentive to keep practicing which helps. Also, the entire program is very well rounded.

I sometimes have trouble with the record audio but it works most of the time. It is nice to be able to hear your own voice and compare to the teachers for accuracy. My biggest complaint with Rocket Portuguese is with the male speaker (Paulo). His pronunciation of words ending in "s" has a very harsh "sh" sound which is completely different from the female teacher and every other audio teacher I have heard. Words like "Bem vindos" which has a soft "os" ending are pronounced like "Bem vindoosh". I can understand that Paulo may be from a different part of Brazil and perhaps it is pronounced that way there. However, when every other teacher pronounces it with a soft ending you want to practice and mimmic the right way.

Overall, this is a great program and I plan on becoming conversationally fluent with Portuguese with Rocket's help.

Es bueno, pero no tengo mucho dinero para comprarlo,lo recomiendo ampliamente, yo creo que serviria mucho para alguien que de verdad quiere aprender este o cualquier idioma, el precio se me hace muy elevado, estoy muy interesado pero si me hicieran un buen descuento por los tres niveles lo pensaria y probablemente me aceptarian, gracias. i like it but can't afford it at this time. thanks

I love Rocket Languages Portuguese. The amount of content is amazing, and the quality is superb. I have been learning Portuguese for a year, using various other expensive and inexpensive applications and books, some of which have been advertised on television, yet felt i was not learning to the best of my abilities. i decided to give rocket languages a try, and was instantly impressed with the trial version. i was so impressed that i immediately purchased the full Portuguese course. I would recommend Rocket Languages to anyone of all ages and backgrounds. Very pleased with my purchase.

I have been trying to learn Portuguese for about 4 years, using Duolingo and Memrise. Through I found that my reading was OK, however everything else was poor, and speaking was non-existant. Having stumbled across Rocket Languages about a month ago my progress has come on leaps and bounds. My Brazilian girlfriend has noticed a huge difference as well, in that I am actually (or at least trying to) speaking in Portuguese to her. I finally have the confidence to start talking in Portuguese.

Rocket Languages has a large collection of lessons to dig into that are effective at teaching the language, and it's easy to use. The one thing I dislike so far is that I was use to using Rosetta Stone, and I loved the visual aspect. It would be awesome if they could incorporate visuals into their lessons as well. But for now the main thing I really like is the added contextual explanations for certain phrases and the fact that they make you have a conversation with the words you learned. My girlfriend is happy i am at least learning her language.
