From the Back Cover --

Aquarela - Portuguese for Foreigners is designed to teach Portuguese as a second language to people who are interested in learning the language and culture of Brazil. This encompasses the history, music, culture, geography and food of this fascinating country. Brazil is a huge melting pot. Today’s Brazilians are the descendents, mostly intermixed, of Africans, Europeans, Native Indians, Asians and Middle Easterners. Brazilian culture is complex and varied; it is the land of soccer, samba, bossa nova and the Amazon. Despite these culturally important aspects of life in Brazil, it is a potentially rich country with a strong industrial sector, large agricultural production, and rich natural resources. Brazil is the fifth most populous country in the world, after China, India, the US, and Indonesia, and it is currently the tenth largest economy in the world. The economies and populations of Brazil and the United States are the two largest in the Western Hemisphere. Whether you are interested in business, pleasure or both, Aquarela will expose you all aspects of Brazilian Portuguese and culture. This book aims to be a practical approach to language training, focusing on everyday language use as well as work-related situations. The method provides students of Brazilian Portuguese with an in-depth, structured approach to learning vocabulary, and helps them develop oral communication and comprehension skills. Grammar is explained for practical use, keeping linguistic terminology to a minimum. This book is an excellent source of wide-ranging, up-todate vocabulary and useful phrases, and is suitable for adult students.
