It's a great program.

I liked it. It really helped me understand the differences and similarities between the two languages. It helped me out a lot with my Portuguese oral exams. The only critique I have is that the Canadian guy is a narcasist. He dominated the conversation and pushed his opinion, which made for some useless dialogue. The language most people are trying to learn here is Portuguese, specifically for Spanish speakers. That's the only reason I took off a star. I loved the other instructors on the podcast, especially since the Spanish speaker is Venezuelan, like me!

Outstanding

As a fluent Spanish speaker and beginner Portuguese learner, this podcast was absolutely perfect. It's so well-made though that I think you would benefit even if you had no knowledge of Spanish. The episodes provide a super-useful, entertaining guide to grammar and pronunciation. Orlando's enthusiasm for grammar is contagious, and there are lots of humorous moments that made me chuckle! Also, I loved Valdo's voice and could listen to him speak Portuguese all day! I always listened with the PDF open as a reference; it was really helpful to be able to read along with the dialogue and also to study the additional cultural and grammar notes. I'm grateful to the UT team for providing such a high-quality free resource.
