PORT 197H Portuguese for Romance Language Speakers (3) This course offers an introduction to Brazilian Portuguese for students who already have a good grasp of grammar and vocabulary in Spanish, French, Italian, or Latin. By the end of the semester students should be able to read most literary and non-literary texts (with the occasional aid of a dictionary) and carry on a simple conversation in Portuguese. Due to the intensive nature of the course our focus will be on acquiring linguistic fluency, but along the way we will also gain insight into certain aspects of Brazilian culture through our analysis of song lyrics, journalistic texts, literature, blogs, TV shows, and films.
