Portuguese

We offer beginning, intermediate, and advanced courses in Portuguese language and culture. Our approach to language instruction is proficiency-oriented and our method is communicative and task-based. Students have the opportunity to develop communicative competence in all four skill areas (listening, speaking, reading and writing) as well as cultural competence.

Portuguese 1-3 are introductory courses in Portuguese language and culture.

Portuguese 11A-11B are accelerated introductory courses in Portuguese language and culture, designed specifically for speakers with proficiency in another romance language.

Portuguese 25 and Portuguese 27 are advanced courses in Portuguese composition, conversation and culture.

Students may self-place (based on previous course work) or take our placement exam for an immediate recommendation.
