Description

This Portuguese language course develops written and oral communication skills through an intensive pro-

gramme of language acquisition. Grammar and language structures are taught around a schedule centred on

practical/concrete situations, such as speaking about oneself, getting to know people, finding one’s way

around town etc., and further develops the ability to express past events, experiences and wishes. Moreover,

the course also aims at familiarizing students with elements of Brazilian culture through the use of our own

materials.

Transferable Skills:

  • Problem solving (recognizing and analyzing problems, solution-oriented thinking)

  • Analytical thinking (analytical skills, abstraction, proof)

  • Responsibility (ownership, self-discipline, responsible attitude towards own project, ac-

knowledging errors)

  • Commitment (dedication, motivation, proactive attitude, own initiative)

  • Self-regulation (independence, insight into one's own goals, motives and capacities)

  • Oral communication (presenting, speaking skills, listening)

  • Written communication (writing skills, reporting, structuring, summarizing)

  • Working together (teamwork, support, loyalty, fulfilling agreements, attendance)

  • Flexibility (dealing with changes, eagerness to learn, adaptability)

  • Critical thinking (asking questions, checking assumptions) • Creative thinking (resourcefulness, curiosity, out of the box thinking) • Integrity (honesty, morality, ethical conduct, personal values) • Intercultural skills (communication with different cultures)

Course objectives
