…well, almost! I actually love the “sound” of the language and would like to learn it just for the sake of understanding it! I live in a small town and do not have the time to reach the nearest city to attend courses, so I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good book + tape (or CD) or even an online course! I speak English and Italian (more or less bilingual), Russian (managed that one!) and have a basic knowledge of Spanish… any tips? I suppose it would be easier for me to find stuff on European Portuguese as I live in Italy, but I so much love bossanova music… well, anything will do!

No exactly what you want, but it's a start Aug 11, 2004

Hi, Lanzarotti,

found this:

It's for Spanish speakers, and I haven't seen what it is exactly. I'll ask around and get back to you if I find anything better.

Greetings from PirenĂłpolis,
