Intensive Portuguese

Andréa de Castro Melloni

An intensive course designed for students who have fulfilled the language requirement in Spanish or another Romance language. Knowledge of one of these languages provides the basis for the accelerated learning of Portuguese. This one-semester 'crash' course teaches fundamental communication skills--comprehension, speaking, reading and writing--and some exposure to cultural aspects of the Portuguese-speaking world, but does not offer an in-depth study of grammar.

Sample reading list:
Emma E. Lima/Samira Iunes, Falar, Ler, Escrever Português

Reading/Writing assignments:
Emphasis will be on oral communication in class. Students must commit to daily preparation of grammar to ensure efficient use of class time.
