In order to reach this goal we will engage in various communicative activities based on cultural topics and everyday situations throughout the Portuguese-speaking world.

Specific Objectives

  • To improve the grammatical level of spoken and written Portuguese
  • To develop the ability to read literary and non-literary texts as well as to understand film in Portuguese
  • To develop skills related to communicating complex ideas in oral and written forms

This course counts toward the Portuguese minor requirements.

This course counts toward the Spanish major as a cognate course (300-level).

Class Format:

We will read online version of influential newspapers and magazines that focus on current affairs; watch documentaries and films; listen to music; and read literary texts and crônicas, exposing students to a variety of voices and images of the Lusophone world. By the end of the semester, students will have developed a general cultural literacy of the Portuguese-speaking world and we hope that an appreciation of the cultural diversity of each country.
