Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (LR). May not be repeated for credit. No credit granted to those who have completed or are enrolled in PORTUG 100.

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: http://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2003/fall/portug/101/001.nsf

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 PORTUG 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. PORTUG 101 is offered only in the Fall academic term.

Our focus is on questions and perspectives concerning both the literary and socioeconomic aspects of gender, race, class inequality, resistance and transformation. The format includes group discussions, activities, regularly assigned readings and papers, class presentations, film screenings, and Internet/library research. The course is taught in English; this is not a Portuguese language course.

This course is part of a larger program called FIGS (first-year interest groups). Students in all of the FIGS seminars will participate in a day-long retreat on Sunday, September 7th from 8:30 to 5:00. Students enrolled in this seminar are required to attend the retreat.

Second-Year Portuguese is designed to improve and expand the work done in PORTUG 101/102. It aims at perfecting students' understanding, speaking, reading and writing skills, while furthering their insight into the literature and culture of the Brazilian people. Classroom work involves group activities, an intensive grammar review — the study of finer points of Portuguese grammar as made necessary from daily observation of students' writing and speaking performances — presentation of cultural projects, discussion of short stories, texts, web sites, and videos. Homework involves completing daily exercises, studying grammar, writing guided essays, preparing for oral exams taken in the office and for cultural projects presented in class, and researching in the Internet. Grading is based on quizzes, oral exam, a cultural project, class attendance and participation, essays, Internet research and a final exam. PORTUG 231 is offered only in the Fall Academic Term.
