Description

This language course builds on skills acquired in previous modules and aims to develop students’ oral and written communication skills to an advanced level, with an emphasis on academic speech and writing skills. In addition, the class seeks to develop awareness of dialect, register, and stylistic differences in Brazilian Portuguese while studying and debating academic and journalistic articles related to history/public policy, literature/cultural analysis, and linguistics. This interactive course builds on Portuguese Module 6, allowing students to take an active role in preparing and presenting, as well as participating in weekly discussions.
