This course offers a practical introduction to the Portuguese language. It is designed to develop basic listening, speaking, reading and writing skills at the novice level through a communicative and culture-based approach. Students acquire the language largely through simulated real-life situations in the classroom and beyond. By immersing themselves in the language, they develop a knowledge and understanding of culture and traditions in Portuguese-speaking countries around the world.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. demonstrate a basic knowledge of Portuguese grammar and lexicon;
  2. ask questions and directions and discuss a variety of topics in Portuguese;
  3. read and understand short literary and non-literary texts;
  4. write brief texts; and
  5. recognise cultural and traditional practises specific to Portuguese societies in the world.
