Through this theoretical-practical class, this course is an introduction to the Portuguese language in its several linguistic competences. It will provide the student with some lexical grammatical structures, which will allow for development of a communicative attitude (Oral and written expression) as well as receptive (Oral and written understanding) linked to every day and contemporary situations. Furthermore, it will offer supervised phonetic training that will make the oral communication easier. Another process commenced during this class is the students´ socialization. Group activities such as group assignments, conversations, presentations, among others, are important tools to allow them to know each other better and grant them the possibility to work on the four linguistic skills in real situations.

Now, departing from the everyday topics, students are exposed and required to act using a much more formal language or, all the opposite, know how to express themselves using casual language, always with a social purpose, in order to provide the language learning process with continuity and prepare them to face and adapt to the different situations that arise on a daily basis. In addition, they continue to work specifically on the automation of the phonemes learned in the previous level, striving to improve their pronunciation and fluency in oral expression. On essential aspect that is stressed during class is student socialization. Group activities such as projects, dialogs, presentations, etc. are important tools to encourage integration and provide students with the possibility to work with the four linguistic skills in real communication contexts. Another priority is to continue to prepare for the Celpebras Exam, using specific activities to do so.

They keep working in colloquial Portuguese during every class, mostly with songs, group projects, sketches, among others. Continuing with the preparation for the test on Portuguese knowledge (CELPEBRAS), there is extensive work with specific texts such as letters, e-mails, invitations, brochures, as well as other texts with a higher level of language complexity . The student will have more practical experience through role plays during the course. This is also valid for the oral part.

In order to do so, we continue to work on the lexico-grammatical contents that have not been covered in previous level, incorporating them in the activities carried out in class and homework. In addition, the course continues to teach Portuguese integrating the four linguistic skills (oral comprehension, oral production, reading and writing) with the objective to use the language properly to acquire the certificate of language proficiency in Portuguese. Like in Portuguese 3, students take oral and written practice tests and are instructed on the objective and criteria of correcting them in order to acquire the tools necessary to prepare for said test. The course also encourages the use of the language for research using the different mediums available at present. At the end, students receive a basic notion of Brazilian Literature, where texts by certain authors are examined, which also serves as the basis to continue working on lexico-grammatical and phonetic aspects, inserted in the historical-cultural context to make future contact with Brazil and Brazilian society a success.

This introductory course conducts an initial exploration of the theoretic and methodological framework of socio-cultural studies. Without defining them beforehand, we will explain the course as an interrogation about the constitutive and implicit bases that would characterize rather than a particular discipline of social sciences of humanities, an intellectual project based on transdisciplinary concerns regarding culture and power. So the course attempts to introduce students in the fundamental chapters of the intellectual history of this project, the contexts in which these questions emerged, as well as some of the problems on which it has focused throughout its existence. In short, the course is considered the initial introduction of the theoretic and methodological tools of this intellectual project that are conclusive factors to be able to distinguish it from other disciplines and styles of intellectual work.

LENG-1905 Introducción al Texto

The starting point of this course is the original practice of comprehension and the production of a text as an intertextual, rhetorical singularity supported by the fact that the legibility of a text consists of its relationship, position or debt with others and the fundamental dimension in which meaning always appears in all texts in more than one sense. To this effect, this Introduction is an invitation to understand text in other meanings, in other meanings of the text and in other meanings of meaning: in this singular sense of what is textual that only the rhetorical and intertextual are capable of expressing.
