First-Year Portuguese II

PORT 102 further develops the fundamentals learned in PORT 101. Lessons are focused on slightly more complex grammar structures that enhance the skills acquired in PORT 101.  At this learning stage, students are able to apply new communicative skills such as talking about future plans and narrating events in the past. PORT 102 follows an interactive, culture-oriented approach to learning a foreign language. The materials used in class incorporate cultural aspects of Brazil and Portugal, designed for the second level of linguistic comprehension. Students participate in communicative activities that will help them develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
