PORT201

Second-Year Portuguese I

PORT 201 is the first half of second-year Portuguese language learning through a culture-oriented and interactive course. The rich cultures of Brazil, Portugal and other Lusophone countries are incorporated in all materials used in class, providing students with an opportunity to immerse in authentic socio-cultural situations. Students participate in communicative activities that will help them develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. PORT 201 further develops the fundamentals learned in PORT 101 and 102. Lessons are focused on slightly more complex grammar structures that enhance the skills acquired.

Upon successful completion of PORT 201, students will be able to: engage in interactions using culturally appropriate forms; and understand and produce written and spoken language on a variety of topics.
