I have been trying to learn portuguese for 2.5 years off and on. My boyfriend is from Brazil and only helps me for a couple weeks every now and then and goes back to english because he is afraid he will forget too much. Now I have not practiced in over a year and we are going to Brazil for 3 weeks in December and most of his family speak no english. I am considering a class at the university but really don't have that kind of time. Does anyone have an opinion about the premium membership on here? I started browsing some of the comments but they are pretty old. I love the word power 101 on my kindle and have mastered it.
