Here is a very interesting textbook written in German that teaches you Portuguese while relying on your knowledge of Spanish:

Kontrastsprache Portugiesisch

There are also audio files (in continental Portuguese) online for the first part of the book.


When you use a fun thread to ask a fellow language learner for the specific link to the quoted post because the Google search on HTLAL has just failed you (and you are looking for opinions on another book from the same series. Badly.)

Serpent, would you give me the address? :)
Sure! When the post is not by someone like Iversen or tarvos (or me :D), your best bet is searching by the username :-)

When you revisit the idea of learning all the Romance languages because your facebook friend keeps posting all these seemingly interesting articles about Romanian culture.

...when your lack of communication / participation with others becomes so unbearable:

A Spanish couple touring your country try asking you for directions; you resolve to learn Spanish.
You witness an emotional reunion of a Chinese family on TV; now you want to learn Mandarin.

etc.
etc.

When you realize that the best way to keep your mind off at a bay for the ongoing
problems in your life, is to engage yourself into studying your target languages even
more intensively.

When reading in other languages is so natural to you that you are getting bored with all the questions like "Why don't you buy a translation?" "Do you really understand it?" "Where can you buy a book in another language?".

Really. I am excited to talk about anything I love to read and about languages. I gladly give tips to anyone interested (such as pointing them to the bookdepository.co.uk). But sometimes, I am really in a hurry, worried by tons of other things and I wish my book would draw as little attention as books in Czech.

When you try to preserve all the newspaper wrap from the mail you get for reading
practice.

I tired taping this up, didn't work so well but I think it's still eligible, haha. It
looks much worse on the photo than it actually does. Will try reading it later.

When you're singing in your car to foreign rap, pull up to stoplight, not paying attention to
anyone else. Not caring that it's a "foreign" language to other americans. lol

-Scream random exclamations in another tongue because you feel like it.

-When you're taking notes or writing something and switch in and out of different languages.

-When you're a member of this forum :D


Foreign rap! YES!!!
