    3 Minute Portugese - Free taster course

    Have you ever tried to learn Portuguese before and failed? 3 Minute Portuguese is like no other language course. The way this method works means you will succeed and be speaking Portuguese by the end of the first lesson. “I’m not very good with languages” I get told this all the time by new students who want to prepare me for how bad they are going to be at learning to speak Portuguese. No matter how bad you think you are with languages, no matter how bad you think your memory is, no matter how terrible you think you are at understanding Portuguese, you will be amazing with 3 Minute Portuguese. The way the 3 Minute Portuguese course is set out means you cannot fail. You will be building sentences in a logical, step-by-step method, learning words and phrases that you will be able to use when you go on holiday to a Portuguese speaking country. How does the method work? I break down the Portuguese language into its smallest components and then I show you how to build it back up into sentences. You will get plenty of opportunity to practise with the language and you will be amazed at how quickly you make noticeable progress. Can I really learn Portuguese in 3 minutes? I called the course 3 Minute Portuguese because three minutes is the perfect amount of time you need to learn anything. I’ve kept each video to around three minutes so that you can watch at least one video per day no matter how busy you are. It is much better to study for three minutes every day than to study for an hour once a week. If you stick to three minute chunks, you will find wonderful things start to happen with your language learning: 1. You’ll maintain your enthusiasmIf you want to learn anything, you have to maintain enthusiasm or else you won’t continue. If you limit your study time to just three minutes, you’ll keep Portuguese fresh and exciting and you’ll be eager to learn. If you spend hours studying, very quickly you’ll get bored with Portuguese and it’ll turn into a chore. 2. You’ll study more consistentlyIt’s much better to study for just three minutes once a day than to study for three hours once a week. A spare three minutes is relatively easy to find even in the most hectic of schedules. If you make sure you complete at least one three-minute study session every day, it’ll quickly become a habit that you’ll do without thinking. It’s much easier to fit in a daily three-minute habit than a weekly one hour habit. By doing this, you’ll become a much more consistent learner, and consistency is the key to success. 3. You’ll remember things betterThis is my favourite reason as to why you should limit your study to just three minute chunks. If you study something for just three minutes every day, you’ll trick your brain into memorising the information more quickly than if it were to see the information for hours each day. It’ll think, “I see this information every day so it must be important, but I don’t see it for very long so I’d better hold onto it and make it into a memory fast!” You’ll be amazed at how much more easily things tend to stay in your brain if you limit yourself to just three minutes a day. Sign up now and start speaking right away! So, if you want to learn to speak Portuguese quickly and with a simple method that you can use even if you have no free time at all, then give 3 Minute Portuguese a go and you’ll be very pleased you did. This is the free taster course for the 3 Minute Portuguese series, and it contains the first three lessons of the full course. All lessons are broken down into three minute chunks. Once you have completed this course, if you want to progress further, you can find “3 Minute Portuguese – Course 1” to learn even more Portuguese! Muito obrigado (thank you very much) Kieran
