Taught mostly in Brazilian Portuguese, this Portuguese Year 2 (Lower Intermediate) is a follow-up course to Portuguese Beginners (Year 1) for those wishing to consolidate both active and passive skills for the purpose of practical communication. It runs over three terms and students learn new structures and vocabulary around different topics to extend the range of expression in this highly communicative Portguese course. Students build on and advance listening, speaking, reading and writing skills and cover the main points of Portuguese grammar.
