PORTUG 280 is an accelerated course that provides an introductory overview of Portuguese and the Lusophone culture for those with proficiency in a Romance Language, especially Spanish. Pronunciation, intonation, and speaking activities in pairs and small groups will help participants of the course differentiate Portuguese from other Romance languages. By the end of this first contact with the language, students will be able to confidently communicate and interact in Portuguese.

PORTUG 280 may be counted toward the 18 credits for the Portuguese minor.

PORTUG 280 counts as a 279-399-level course toward the Spanish major or minor (elective). Students may count only one of ITALIAN 410 or PORT 280 toward the Spanish major or minor requirements.
