My 18-year-old daughter and I are traveling to Brazil this summer, and this video was a fun way for us to get back into Portuguese. The kids in the video are just plain CUTE and the visuals are great. It covers very BASIC vocab (colors, numbers, plus many nouns), and introduces singular and plural articles and sentence structure. The screen shows the Portuguese spelling as the words are pronounced. The Portuguese meanings are obvious from the video; you hear no English. This is a great confidence-builder and a great springboard into the language. It is fun to watch. The production is good -- very professional.
Unfortunately, there is very little out there in video/DVD for learning Portuguese. This is great for an introduction to the language, but it would be nice to follow up with something that took it farther in video/DVD form.
My elementary age son is interested in French. So I'm ordering this for him in that language as a starting point.
