Portuguese - Level 3


Course description

This course is designed for those who have completed Portuguese - Level 2 or who feel confident with the basics of the Portuguese language and wish to explore the language further. In this intermediate level, we will revisit some topics studied in the initial levels but with a broader scope and a deeper exploration of the Portuguese language.

Throughout the course, students will maintain an interactive and engaging approach to language learning by working with more complex texts, audio recordings, and videos of real-life language scenarios and contexts.

In this course, students will study both Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese, learning more about the richness of the linguistic and cultural diversity within the language.

Learning objectives

In this course you will: 

  • learn the use of the Imperfect tense
  • explore regular and irregular verb tenses
  • learn idiomatic expressions
  • be able to provide advice and opinions
  • make plans
  • feel more confident when using present, past and future during a conversation
  • talk about yourself more in-depth using more complex sentences and vocabulary

We encourage students to participate in our language courses more than once to gain a thorough understanding of the material covered in the 10 lessons. This also provides additional exposure to a variety of activities within each topic.

Our online hybrid language courses make language learning flexible and convenient. The use of both synchronous and asynchronous delivery styles allows for both real-time virtual classroom conversation practice (synchronous delivery) and self-paced study (asynchronous delivery). The synchronous delivery style will occur during the scheduled class dates and time, using Zoom for videoconferencing, chat and screen sharing for class instruction and pair/group work. The asynchronous delivery style uses Brightspace, an online environment where learners can access class materials and resources for self-paced study throughout the week. Educational activities can include exercises, readings, forums, audio/video files, quizzes, etc.
