College of Arts and Science

This is the third course in the three-part elementary Portuguese-language sequence. The focus is on a review of basic verb tenses and syntax, and an introduction to more advanced grammatical structures including present, past and future subjunctive usages, as well as conditional, future and perfect verb forms. Students continue to build on their existing vocabulary base and to 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. Graded on A-F basis only. Prerequisites: grade in the C range or better in PORT 1200 or equivalent.
