Students discuss issues of relevance to the Brazilian society, while expressing their own personal opinions, reactions, conclusions, and possible outcomes of contemporary issues. Grammatical features and vocabulary are integrated into the content of the course..

Materials include newspaper and magazine articles, crônicas, cultural readings, videos, films, songs, Internet explorations, and computer resources.
