Intermediate Portuguese I
Students enrolling in this sequence will have completed one year of Portuguese and will typically have a proficiency level of "novice high" or "intermediate low” (and occasionally “intermediate mid"), according to the ACTFL proficiency guidelines. In this class, they will strengthen their knowledge of grammatical and syntactical structures and improve their mastery of the language while increasing vocabulary and functional communicative ability. Students will be also exposed to the reading of short stories and other authentic texts in the target language. Most students successfully completing this sequence will emerge with a proficiency level of "intermediate high." Depending on motivation, effort, and previous knowledge some students may progress to a level of "advanced low" or "advanced mid" during this sequence.
