Ponto de Encontro: Portuguese as a World Language
"Ponto de Encontro" is the first Portuguese language textbook that allows the instructor to choose to teach either Brazilian or European Portuguese. While it seeks to emphasize commonalities, it also highlights and preserves important differences in both vocabulary and grammar. This program provides an ample, flexible, communication-oriented framework for use in beginning and intermediate Portuguese programs.

I'be been using this book in class with students from the United States who learn Brazilian Portuguese.
This book focus on native English speakers (students) and it works very well for in class use with the Communicative Approach.
The Listening activities are very effective, mainly because the audio files are available online and are free. The contents and the vocabulary are relevant, and pace that native Brazilians speak in the audio files is natural.
This is a very useful way to learn portugese.
