Second-Year Portuguese II

PORT 202 is the second 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.

Upon successful completion of PORT 202, students will be able to: manipulate grammar structures of increased complexity to engage in meaningful social interactions; use culturally appropriate forms; and understand written/spoken language on a variety of topics.
