This textbook aims to be a practical approach to language acquisition, focusing on everyday language use, as well as work-related situations. It is ideal for adult learners. Aquarela was created to be practical and user-friendly. The method provides students of Brazilian Portuguese with an in-depth, structured approach to develop oral communication and compression skills. Aquarela is an excellent source of wide-raging, up-to-date vocabulary and useful phrases. Grammar is explained for practical use, keeping linguistic terminology to a minimum. It is explained easily and simply, presented schematically with graphics and tables, and in context, emphasizing particular grammatical concepts introduced in logical order.

Aquarela uses a highly effective method with audios aimed to develop listening comprehension and pronunciation skills. The audios enable you to hear Portuguese as it is really spoken by presenting dialogues between native Brazilian speakers. The audios include recordings of all 10 lesson dialogues and texts, some grammar, vocabulary and oral exercises. They are available for free on Aquarela’s website. This textbook is now available as a hardcopy and ebook.
