Prerequisites & Distribution: No credit granted to those who have completed or are enrolled in Portuguese 100. (4). (LR).

Course Homepage: http://www.umich.edu/~port101/

This course is designed to give students the ability to understand the Portuguese of everyday life when spoken at a moderate speed, to be understood in typical situations of everyday life, and to read non-technical Portuguese of moderate difficulty. Because of the nature of materials, and the nationality and training of the present staff, students will learn the variety of Portuguese spoken in Brazil by educated speakers. Classroom work involves gradual introduction of Portuguese structure through dialogues and communication exercises which stress listening and speaking. Students completing Portuguese 101 understand and can act with awareness of different sociocultural norms; speak using memorized phrases and some original language; read short texts of familiar or simple structure for detailed comprehension, less familiar materials for gist and main ideas; write familiar material with considerable accuracy. Homework consists of studying grammar, memorizing structures and verb forms, and writing exercises. Grading will be based on six hourly quizzes, two partial exams, oral exercises, homework, class participation and attendance, and a final exam. Portuguese 101 is offered only in the Fall term.
