This course builds on Introductory Portuguese II. It is designed to further develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in the Portuguese language at a more advanced level by reviewing and extending grammatical structures and vocabulary. Exposing students to authentic material (literary and non-literary texts, short movies, culture videos, etc.) in the target language will not only enhance students’ audio-visual, reading and writing skills, but also deepen intercultural knowledge and understanding of cultural practises 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 wide knowledge of Portuguese grammar and lexicon;
  2. communicate effectively and freely in Portuguese;
  3. analyse, extract, and use information from spoken and written Portuguese;
  4. write comprehensive texts and descriptions; and
  5. demonstrate knowledge and appreciation of cultural practices specific to Portuguese societies in the world.
