New Interactive Brazil 2014 Guide Book Teaches what Traditional Books Cannot

May 28, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

This summer 500,000 people will travel to the games in Brazil. Many will pick up a book in the airport, and try to learn a vocabulary from the written words.

As you might have experienced, it is very hard to guess pronunciation. If you don’t speak a bit of the language, you are likely to pay tourist prices. Brazilian prices are quite high, so saving money will make a difference.

Guide Books are becoming digital. In their new form they contain Sound and even Video. In these books the images of common words, phases and situations are given sound, so you can hear how real people say things like, “Excuse me, is there a bar nearby?”, “How much is it to Copacabana beach?” or “Can I look at the menu?”.

Most phrases are illustrated with relevant photographs too. Because you get the phrase in its written and spoken forms as well as an image to associate it with, it activates different learning processes at the same time and you’ll find it easier to memorise the phrases

We are getting used to having information in our pocket rather than a book on a shelf at home. The web is great for finding advice, but on a holiday mobile roaming charges make searching the web expensive. Mobile phone apps are great at giving bites of information, but books remain the best solution for the job. By going digital, guide books can be with you where-ever you go. You can read, listen & learn on the flight to the World Cup.

Recipes for Visiting Brazil is a guide for those that want the most out of their visit to the World Cup. Brazil is a country with great social contrasts, and there is a lot of frustration about the World Cup. Anybody visiting should learn how to get around safely and where to find the entertainment at reasonable prices. The guide has a collection of advice and first-hand experience.

Another great feature is that you learn slang expressions that Brazilians actually use, rather than language-school Portuguese. It gives you everyday phrases that will help you get around, and it has an audio feature so that you can learn how to pronounce these like a Brazilian would.

The book gives you some insights of Brazilian culture, the food, how to meet the locals, and some specific information about each of the host cities of the World Cup. The second part of the book; Speaking Portuguese in the 12 Cities of the World Cup 2014 has been written specifically with the World Cup in mind, you’ll find it useful even if you visit Brazil when there isn’t football going on.

Recipes for Visiting Brazil is on iBook Store at $12. It will be free for a day on June 8th. The companion phone app is available on June 10th.
