CLASS PLAN
Nine Sessions that aim to build general basic comprehension and communication skills in elementary Portuguese.


CONTENT
Conversational Portuguese and an introduction to cultural practices, with a focus on clear explanation of basic language principles.


PLANNED LEARNING OUTCOMES
By the end of this course, students should be able to:

  1. Communicate easily understood in basic Portuguese, in particular to give direction and instructions to Portuguese tourists.
  2. Increase the skills, vocabulary and study attitude required for continued study of Portuguese.


IMPORTANT: Textbook cost is not included in the course fee. In the event of a course being cancelled WEA cannot be held responsible for the purchase of any textbooks. We therefore suggest you purchase your textbooks closer to the time of the course commencing.
