If you buy Modern Brazilian Portuguese Grammar Workbook by John Whitlam, I recommend you also buy the companion text, Modern Brazilian Portuguese Grammar: A Practical Guide. They go together!
The workbook comes with an answer key, so you won’t need a teacher or handy local Portuguese speaker to check your answers.
I think this was the first time in my entire grammatical life I had ever been told to do certain grammar exercises in oral style. In one exercise, for instance, I had to translate a magazine-story excerpt into “spoken language style.” In another, I had to translate an oral account into a more formal written version.
Overall, the exercises in Modern Brazilian Portuguese Grammar Workbook were not the most fun I have ever had, but I did learn something.
