PORT 101 - Intensive Portuguese 1 (4)

The first of a two-semester sequence for students with no previous Portuguese instruction in which students complete three semesters in two, this course emphasizes the development of communication skills and acquisition of basic vocabulary. Classroom activities, daily homework, compositions, and weekly quizzes reinforce grammatical structures. The conversation component promotes student comprehension of native speakers of Brazilian Portuguese and develops student fluency. The course includes a mandatory one-hour weekly group conversation class with a tutor for nine weeks of the semester outside of the class meeting time.
