Portuguese Intermediate Stage C
6 October 2021
Wednesdays from 18:00 to 20:00. This course will be taught remotely via an interactive online classroom.
This course is aimed at students who have studied Portuguese for two years part-time, who wish to further progress their active and passive language skills.
The emphasis is on communication and comprehension skills but also builds on the grammar base acquired in lower level courses.
Some topics will be revised and extended with new themes introduced to expand students' knowledge of Portuguese & Brazilian culture and society.
Learning and teaching
The emphasis of the course is on participation and students are encouraged to actively participate in class through various non-threatening forms of activities designed to stimulate communication.
Coursework and assessment
For us the most important element of assessment is that it should enhance your learning. Our methods are designed to increase your confidence and we try very hard to devise ways of assessing you that are enjoyable and suitable for adults with busy lives.
The assessment of this course is divided into four parts to assess each of the following skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. It is designed to enhance what you have learnt during the course.
Additionally to the weekly sessions, we recommend that you spend time between the lessons, revising and practising what has been done in class.
Materials will be provided.
Library and computing facilities
