Subject outline

This is a practical introduction to the Portuguese language and is particularly recommended to students who have a prior knowledge of another Romance language. It is an intensive subject in which the beginning student acquires the skills of speaking and listening, while developing abilities in reading and writing. Students acquire the language through participation in a range of activities (through language laboratory exercises, computer-aided tasks, role play in pairs and small groups) and through the study of a wide spectrum of audio, video and written materials. Various aspects of Luso-Brazilian culture are studied throughout. This subject counts towards a Spanish major or a Diploma of Languages in Spanish as a second-year cultural subject.
