The resource is a sort of online phrasebook or a pocket online interactive dictionary, focusing mainly on words, phrases and practical expressions people can use in everyday life and useful when travelling. By repeating the words out loud or simply by listening to the sounds of the words, it will make the Portuguese language more familiar. This is adequate for anyone who wants to learn the basics of Portuguese, either for business purposes or simply if you want to go to Portugal for leisure purposes.
The resource is rather complete, as it has an audio conversation guide, with 400 useful expressions and it covers 17 themes ranging from essential words and phrases in Portuguese to "hotel, looking for someone, beach or in case of trouble", plus the possibility of downloading all the vocabulary lists in mp3 or pdf (click on the printable version). Right at the beginning, we have guessing games/activities, focusing on one of the 17 themes: if the phrases are written in English, then the phrases spoken are in Portuguese, and vice-versa (one can easily swap the language in icons below the activity). Then we just need to guess/choose the corresponding phrase.
