It is expected that students will be able to participate in conversational interactions to satisfy basic needs and/or to handle a simple transaction. Students will be able to self-correct and re-state when necessary, and circumlocute. Emphasis is placed on using the language orally for practical (i.e., transactional) functions (e.g., purchasing goods, interacting with medical personnel) as well as describing people and places. Students will be able to write about personal topics and about their immediate environment. They will also be able to write about general interest (e.g., travel, studies) and work-related topics. This course teaches students to see the Luso-Brazilian world from a Portuguese speaker's perspective, and aims to raise the students' own cultural self-awareness through comparison and contrast.

POR 212 - Second Year Portuguese
Portuguese 212 is a continuing accelerated Portuguese language and Luso-Brazilian culture course, with an emphasis on Brazil, which serves as a crossroads between European (e.g., Portugal), African, and Indigenous cultures. This course aims to increase students' levels of proficiency via the everyday use of the target language. By continuous practice with the target language, it is expected that students will be able to spontaneously create with the language, initiate, sustain and close intermediate-level exchanges, ask and answer questions and possess the skills necessary to circumlocute when faced with a more difficult communicative task. Additionally, students will be able to meet intermediate practical writing needs by creating compositions, descriptive narratives and, crucially, will determine the message, the primary thesis, and/or the socio-cultural context of simple expository and narrative texts (written and oral). Since instruction is conducted entirely in Portuguese, students will achieve a high understanding of the target language that helps them to utilize it creatively in speech and writing and to interpret some complex aural passages and readings. They also investigate some historical contemporary issues important to life in Luso-Brazilian culture. They continue to build skills for interpreting readings dealing with cultural issues and they comment on relevant texts critically. Letter grade only.
