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