Reviews - What do customers think about Berlitz Portuguese Phrase Book & Dictionary (Berlitz Phrase Books)?
The perfect - compact - phrase book Jan 5, 2007
I bought this phrase book for a recent trip to Portugal. It was EXTREMELY handy: Primarily because of how well it is organized! There are sections for basic expressions, making friends, getting around, shopping, dining, and an A-Z index in the back of the book. I was amzaed how much information could be crammed into such a small book! It had just about every key phrase I ever needed on my trip. And - unlike Spanish - in Portuguese, "what you see is not always what you say". For this reason, the pronunciation guide for each phrase was a life saver!
Excellent All-Purpose Pocket Reference Jun 10, 2000
The book is very easy to use with excellent content. It is arranged by topic in color-coded sections. It has useful commentary and hints like you might find in a travel book. The dictionaries are minimal - only 44 pages for both. If you want to look up Portuguese words you'll need a separate dictionary.
