In this one-week (4-day) course, we will have fun learning basic greetings, introductions, vocabulary and simple phrases for communicating in Brazilian Portuguese. #confidence

Class experience

Learners will learn basic greetings, leave takings, and survival-level vocabulary for communicative purposes.  Learners will gain an appreciation for Brazilian Portuguese and understand basic linguistic nuances between English and Portuguese.  
Portuguese is my second language of 20+ years.  I have a love for the language, culture, and people of Brazil, and I love to share that knowledge, enthusiasm, and passion with my learners.  Furthermore, because of my professional background in studying phonology and linguistics in teaching English as a second language, I have a unique perspective and understanding on how to teach and learn language.  Plus, I find language and culture learning fun!
Homework Offered
Limited homework will be assigned, primarily focused on practicing and reviewing each day's new vocabulary. Reviewing and practicing should take no more than 1 hour per day. (However, more review and practice is always welcomed!)
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
