Explore the cultural richness of the Portuguese-speaking world with this beginning-level language class (A1.1). Master the basics of Portuguese with a proven communicative approach that combines conversation practice with your instructor with robust online resources to keep you learning between classes. This practical course will quickly have you talking about family, daily routines, preferences, and food. Same textbook is used for Portuguese 1, 2 and 3.

Course format: Videos and interactive online materials introduce new grammar and vocabulary and teach pronunciation, listening and reading skills. Participants practice speaking with the instructor in virtual small groups of 3-5 students in 30-minute weekly sessions that meet on Thursdays between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. CT. Online materials should be viewed prior to the virtual conversation session. Textbook purchase required to accompany the lessons. Please see textbook information under Fee and More Information.
