"I loved this course! I have tried a few different methods for learning Portuguese in the last year or so, and Speaking Brazilian has by far improved my skills the most. I valued having classes led by native speakers, weekly live courses to practice speaking, and easy access to comprehensive materials to work on throughout the week! I recently got married, my husband is Brazilian, and he has noted my improvements in understanding and speaking Portuguese after taking this course. Thank you!!"
