    Hi Kristine! It’s very nice to meet You! I am very much interested in learning The Portuguese Lanuage,(Brazilian) because I am involved in a Volunteer Bible Educational Work, which is being done in over 235 lands, worldwide. So far, I have been engaged in this VolunteerWork, in the English language (18 yrs.), the Spanish language (11 yrs.), and now, I am looking forward to learning The Portuguese language. A friend gave me a copy, of your book. 10 Minutes a Day, in PORTUGUESE. and so far I have been reading it, and it’s very helpful to me! I would like to have it in The Online Form, if that’s possible, Please! Can you Please inform me on, how to get it online? Thank you so much!

      Hi back,

      Congratulations with all the work you have been doing and with learning both Spanish and now Portuguese. I would think that “PORTUGUESE in 10 minutes a day would be quite perfect for the skills you need for this work.

      With the PORTUGUESE book there is a digital download which includes various interactive drills and quizzes. By using this you have a chance to hear the language spoken, repeat, test yourself and have a bit of fun along the way. This is not the book in an online form. These downloadable modules are exercises and quizzes pertinent to the book.

      There is no online version of the full book.

      Thank you for contacting me. I always enjoy hearing how people like yourself are using the language in their work, their volunteer activities, with neighbors and while traveling. Keep up the good work!

    I would like to learn Hawaiian. Any chance you will be adding this, and more languages, to your language learning series?

    “Rebecca” said:

      We do have one Hawaiian language product, “HAWAIIAN a language map.” Have you looked at it?


      It isn’t a complete course like the 10 minutes a day Series, but it would be a good starting point. Check it out and let me know if you have additional questions.

    I purchased Chinese in 10 Minutes a Day and downloaded the digital component on my iphone but have not been able to open it. What to do?

    “Eduardo” said:

      Always great to hear that someone is learning Chinese. The digital download is software which works on PCs and Mac computers. Give that a try and if you should have any technical issues then please call the main Bilingual Books office at 800-488-5068 or email them at Customer.Service@bbks.com.

      Good luck with your Chinese program!

    Hi, I’ve tried to learn Portuguese from various sources and the 10 minutes a day has been the best so far. Its very difficult to teach yourself and there are no classes or groups but its important for me to learn it and at last I feel I can. Its still early days. Any chance of it coming out in mpg audio?

    “Donna” said:

      When I read comments like this I always want to say, please scream that from the rooftops! I am delighted that you like the “PORTUGUESE in 10 minutes a day program and have been successful with it. Just don’t give up. Stick with it. A little bit every day and it will work.

      No plans at this moment for a separate audio program, but you do know that the digital download has an audio component, yes? You can hear the vocabulary on the sticky labels, flash cards and much more as you quiz yourself.

      Again, don’t give up even if you don’t have a class to attend. Make your own classroom – once a day or twice a week. Make it fit into your schedule and then stick to it.

      All the best!

    Hello Kristine,

    Your book has truly been a blessing. I am one of a group of missionaries studying together weekly preparing for our next missionary trip to Nicaragua. To God be the Glory!

    Hello Christine.
    I have just purchased the Chinese in Ten Minutes a Day and find it very interesting and helpful. I see that there is material on Farsee but is it only a language map. Do you have the book and CD Rom available?
    Yours gratefully,

    “Laurence” said:

      I wish we had the book FARSI in 10 minutes a day, but at this time the only material we have for Farsi is our Language Map, FARSI a language map.


      Our editorial department meets monthly to discuss new titles and I will pass your interest in Farsi to their attention.

      I’m glad you like CHINESE in 10 minutes a day. It’s a fascinating language.

    Hi Kristine:

    I completed the entire French in 10 Minutes a Day while commuting back and forth to work (a one-hour round trip daily). I continue to review and practice every time I’m in my car. I found your method to be the most efficient way for me to learn introductory French since I don’t have time to attend a formal class. I would be happy to continue learning more French using your method. Have you created a low intermediate book and CDs so people can continue to practice more French at a slightly higher level?

    “Barb” said:

      Congratulations on completing the FRENCH program. It is always a treat to hear such kind words about our program.

      Now for the bad news, we do not have a second level or intermediate book. The “10 minutes a day” program was designed to get people started with about 2,000 words and a lot of exposure to practical scenarios. The goal is that once you have that background you can use it as a springboard to whatever your language needs might be. Some people learn a language for a quick trip abroad, others because they have a foreign-speaking love interest, some because they have an interest in opera, others because they want to work with an NGO or other international organization. For us, it was most important to get people started in a way which keeps them excited about learning a foreign language.

      Now that you have this base of vocabulary and understanding of the language you might consider listening to French TV or radio. Don’t forget there are options coming out of Canada (Quebec) as well. For reading practice try the BBC news page in French or amazon’s online site in French. These are very practical ways to expand your vocabulary as well as being contemporary.

      Don’t hesitate to come back to me with questions. Again, congratulations and well done!
