Conversa Brasileira is an online open access site that contains a series of 35 video scenarios in which Brazilians talk about their daily activities, everything from hobbies to shopping, and from traffic jams to soccer games. These materials are designed to help intermediate- and advanced-level learners of Portuguese to analyze the way that Brazilians really talk and improve in their own proficiency and fluency. This textbook provides a hardcopy of all of the online materials, including the dialog transcriptions, English translations, and lesson notes that link to the original website.
Conversa Brasileira is provided open access and is available without password restriction and for free. These materials are part of the complete collection of Portuguese language materials that have been produced at the University of Texas at Austin, which can be found at Brazilpod, http://coerll.utexas.edu/brazilpod/index.php.

This is a great resource for those who are serious about learning Brazilian Portuguese. There are a couple of editing boo-boos and some missing text but overall you can't beat the value for the wealth of information. Good Brazilian Portuguese texts are nearly impossible to find. What I love about the program at UT Austin is that 1. it's FREE and 2. you can get as deep as you are inclined. This book is not for beginners, however. I also have the advantage of a bilingual household (gringo husband/Brasileira wife).
