PGSE 3403

Cultural Studies IV

Advanced Portuguese II
PGSE 3401-3402 (Language Studies) & PGSE 3403 (Cultural Studies)
Students in this sequence will have a good foundation of Portuguese, and will have a proficiency level of at least “Advanced-low”, according to the ACTFL proficiency guidelines. Students will continue their linguistic development through the study of more complex language structures that enable them to increase a more specialized and precise vocabulary, as well as language proficiency while learning more in depth about the Lusophone world. Classes are designed to enable students to practice written and oral language addressing different registers and pragmatic situations, and they will also explore literary texts more in depth. Students usually participate intensively and effectively in formal and informal conversations, on topics related to their professional areas and scholarly interests, but also on unfamiliar topics that demand a more focused and elaborated pattern of discourse to convey complex meanings. The Cultural Studies is designed to enable students to practice written and oral language addressing and exploring literary, journalistic, and specialized oral and written texts in depth. Most students who successfully complete this sequence will typically develop skills at the “Advanced-High” and, occasionally, they might achieve the “Superior” level of proficiency. 197
