Our Portuguese Language Programs meet the needs of those who wish to develop or improve their Portuguese for use in the workplace, during travel, and in everyday situations. Our live, teacher-led classes allow you to practice your speaking and listening skills through interactive exercises with peers. This courses in these programs emphasize authenticity, active participation, pronunciation, listening skills, and role-playing. The required courses teach you the Portuguese language while also introducing you to the cultures in which it is spoken.
If you have no previous Portuguese language experience, we recommend you begin with LANG 9045 Portuguese Fundamentals 1 (Online). If you have previous Portuguese language experience and you would like to have your language skills assessed to determine the most suitable course for you to begin with, we recommend you do a placement interview with us.
