This course is designed for students interested in working in/with the Portuguese-speaking World, particularly for those considering taking internships in a Portuguese-speaking country (such as Brazil, Portugal, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, or São Tomé and Principe). The professional focus varies depending on students' needs; in the past, the course has focused on the realms of business, international relations, and the medical sciences. Students will learn professional vocabulary and will explore cultural differences specific to their field. This year, the course will also be discussing the changes that the pandemic has brought to the workplace and the particularities of doing remote internships in Portuguese-speaking countries.

Mini-Course: Please note this class meets from March 7, 2022 through April 19, 2022.

Class Format:

The course will be taught entirely in Portuguese, emphasizing Brazilian variants. Students will be expected to speak and write 100% in Portuguese. Through multimodal readings, short essays, presentations, and Internet use and research, students will develop their proficiency in reading, writing, listening-comprehension, and oral practice.
