What you'll learn in this intermediate portuguese class:

In this level, students acquire the ability to understand and participate in conversations at normal speed about simple topics and current events. The grammatical structure becomes a little more complex and students will improve their reading and comprehension skill through articles of magazines and newspapers. Written homework will be asked in every session.

This course is for people who have finished the entire Basic Level, have a good grasp of pronunciation, grammar and sentence patterns, and have the basic competence of the Portuguese language through speaking, reading and writing. 

Course requirements: Students must have completed Basic Portuguese Levels 1-3 and have command of the Present Indicative, Preterite Indicative and Immediate Future.

Methodology: In our communicative method, classes are 60% conversation and 40% grammar. The course will rely on a textbook, handouts and exercises supplemented with music to emphasize certain points and distinctions.

Evaluation: Students will be evaluated on their ability to communicate, interact and properly use the language. There will be a written and oral final evaluation. Active participation is essential for the mastering of communication in this language and participation will be part of the overall evaluation.

Finding the Right Level:

As students progress from Beginner to Intermediate to Advanced levels, their progress is noticeable in communicating with native Portuguese speakers. Each level has 10 classes as defined below. At the end of each complete level, students who qualify receive a Certificate of Completion.

All classes are scheduled in packages of a 10-session minimum. Before reaching the last session, many students decide to continue in the next level class. In case you booked a package and for any reason, after one class, you cannot continue, then we will charge for the first class and return the remaining amount by check. After the first class, there is no refund available. We will charge 10% administrative fee for refund or returned checks. We can put classes on hold for up to 6 months. We realize that situations occur that unexpectedly alter our plans. However, you need to alert our teachers as soon as possible to these changes so they can plan accordingly. 

If you need to change your class schedule or cancel a class, you must notify us by email no later than 5:00 pm on the business day before a scheduled class. If a class is scheduled on Monday, notice must be received by 5 pm the preceding Friday. Any cancellation or schedule change made after that time will be deducted from your account. 

If you miss three or more consecutive classes, we will discuss holding the class on a different day or time to better accommodate your schedule.
