Our Portuguese modules will follow the blended learning approach (half face-to-face in the classroom at Penrhyn Road and half by virtual online classes via MS Teams).
At the end of each semester long module, there will be two online assessments: Reading & Writing and an Oral Assessment.
Please note: KLS assessments cannot be re-scheduled.
Please also note: a minimum of 10 students is required in order for a course to run. Should any course not recruit enough students, it will be cancelled.
This course is for absolute beginners. It aims to give learners a basic knowledge of reading, listening, spoken and written skills in a dynamic and communicative way, through individual, pair and group work and studio-based and authentic texts. The focus is on accuracy as well as communication.
This module is designed to provide near-beginners with the foreign language skills to enable them to interact satisfactorily in survival situations and social encounters in the foreign country and to be aware of related aspects of the foreign culture and environment.
