3 credits

Prerequisite(s): POR 111 



POR 112 builds upon the topics covered in POR 111. It continues addressing the fundamentals of pronunciation, conversation, grammar, and written communication through the acquisition of basic Portuguese vocabulary. POR 112 adds to the cultural knowledge gained in POR 111 and offers numerous opportunities to students to learn about the diverse cultures of the Lusophone world focusing on Brazil. POR 112 is a highly interactive course framed within the communicative approach and guided by the American Council on the Teaching Foreign Languages Standards, "The 5Cs" (Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons, Communities). POR 112 is most appropriate for students who have had one or two semesters of Portuguese in their high school.
