Obrigado por entrar em contato com Babbel.

A compra dos pacotes de 1, 3 e 6 meses e das ofertas só é possível com cartão de crédito, pois ainda não trabalhamos com boleto bancário. Outra forma de pagamento é a transferência bancária internacional, mas para isso você precisa comprar 1 ano de curso pelo valor de 65 euros/ 158 reais, caso queira posso lhe enviar maiores detalhes.

Espero ter ajudado, mas caso você tenha alguma dúvida ou queira fazer algum comentário, nos escreva e nós entraremos em contato com você o quanto antes.

Is your football team already out of the world cup? Are you relying on another team's result to send your team through to the next round?

You may want to scream some encouragement at the television in the vain hope that it will help. If this is the case, then Babbel can be of assistance. Check out this little graphic displaying how to say "shoot" in 12 Babbel languages.

Have a great week!
