I was a bit puzzled with the pronounce but, if one compares the pronounce with what's written in this table, it's not that bad as it seems: http://www.brazil-help.com/pronounce.htm Paradoxically though, I feel more at ease with the normal speed reading than the facilitated one.
I hope you'll find the link as helpful as I did.
Great addition! I use to review pt-BR lessons in others language learning tools. This will help me a lot to give some and good tips. Thanks! It's good to hear that you feel better with the normal speed. In pt-BR we have a lot of liaison, so it helps to get used to the normal speed.
good, I'm on the right track then! :) I have to say that speaking a couple or Romance languages already helps a lot :P
