* THE SCIENCE BEHIND MINDSNACKS *
At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why our Portuguese app includes 9 challenging games designed by Ivy League professors. Each game teaches a specific aspect of Portuguese, creating a well-rounded learning experience for both kids and adults that goes far beyond basic vocabulary flashcards.
Of course studying is only worth it if it works, so our unique algorithm reinforces the learning process using proven methods from the field of memory studies. Over time, the games adapt to your individual performance, selectively repeating Portuguese words, phrases and grammatical points with which you’ve previously struggled. In other words, as you learn Portuguese, the app learns about you for a more effective learning experience.
Perfect for beginning and intermediate learners, MindSnacks lets you learn Portuguese at home, on the bus or during lunch breaks. You’ll soon spend less time looking at that translation dictionary and more time letting those Portuguese words roll right off your tongue.

Ratings and Reviews
This is my Go-to app for learning languages.
The ONLY thing I don't like is there is no lesson about WHY....like why is there an o in front of some words, or an e or an a, etc. one game tests you on it, but they never tell you why it is that way. Like which one is for singular and which is for plural, etc. Just wish there was more information in the lessons.
No instructions for certain games, so you just kinda wing it.
Great tool for learning, but not useful for people of Portuguese descent.
Brazilian Portuguese and Portuguese from Europe are not the same! While the vocabulary is similar and close, the pronunciation is different. The default should be European Portuguese or have an option for both, in my opinion. Sad, I wanted to use this to communicate with my Vavó.
I love this app so much! I have learned so many new words! I also write out each word five times for practice and hear the pronunciation from the app to help with accent marks! Each game helps you learn the language and the quest (aka goals) keep you wanting to beat each challenge and make it to the next level. Highly recommend it!
