Portuguese
College of Arts and Science

This is the second course in the three-part elementary Portuguese-language sequence. The focus is on increasing vocabulary (including common idiomatic expressions) and reviewing basic verb tenses and syntax. The course also includes further study of key grammatical concepts such as irregular and reflexive verbs, progressive and past tenses, the imperative, and pronoun usage. Students gain practice with Brazilian Portuguese through written and oral homework assignments, as well as in-class structured conversation and discussion of texts, videos, music and other cultural materials related to Brazilian and additional Lusophone cultures. Audio and video recordings provide ample exposure to a variety of native speakers of Brazilian Portuguese, and to a lesser extent of European Portuguese. Prerequisites: Grade in the C range or better in PORT 1100 or its equivalent.
