This course builds on Continuing Portuguese I. The primary goal of this course is to continue to solidify listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in the Portuguese language at an advanced level by exposing students to more complex texts and audio-visual materials, and through individual project work about topics of students’ interest. It also aims to further deepen intercultural knowledge and understanding of cultural practices and traditions in Portuguese-speaking countries around the world.

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

  1. demonstrate comprehensive knowledge of Portuguese grammar and lexicon;
  2. communicate effectively and freely in Portuguese in predictable and unpredictable situations;
  3. analyse, extract, and use information from spoken and written Portuguese across different genres;
  4. write coherent texts and descriptions using complex structures and vocabulary; and
  5. demonstrate comprehensive knowledge and appreciation of cultural practices specific to Portuguese societies in the world.
