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.

It provides students with in depth knowledge of certain lexico-grammatical structures that will enable them to develop a productive (oral and written expression) as well as receptive (oral and written comprehension) communicative attitude in different linguistic contexts. 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.

Students start working with a more formal language, mainly in the written part (understanding and performance). As to the oral part, the student will be encouraged to act under all contexts. 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.

LENG-2950 Estudios Culturales II

This course attempts is structured from a vision intended to punt in context and to politicize cultural and academic practices. In this way, we do not rely on a specific and official vision of Cultural Studies, neither from a recipe about how the apply or evolve. In response to the constant need of putting academic practices into context , this course will be developed around specific issues that cultural studies have analyzed and been involved with along their path. Through this course, three issues that are the cornerstone of the cultural studies will be approached, that is to say, the connection between culture and power: (I) about the different updates of capitalism, (II) about the subject, the truth and the power, (III) about structured societies, and (IV) the question about what is popular.

LENG-3124B Short Story Masterpieces

In the name of its structure and shortness, short stories provide a field of action that is very appropriate to discuss and study a language, if compared to any other literary style of fiction. Therefore, they may be particularly appropriate for studying English as a second language at an advanced level. So through the study of masterpieces of short stories written in English, this course not only provides participants with the opportunity to develop their own style as writers, by carefully analyzing the English used by renowned short story authors around the world. Short Story Masterpieces: Guidelines for Reading and Writing about Fiction also aims to help participants gain confidence in their interpretation skills, in addition to bringing them face to face with the challenge of thinking in a critical, autonomous manner about what they are reading, and developing analytical and argumentative skills that will enable them to present and defend their ideas in the most appropriate manner when speaking and writing in the English language.

LENG-3901 Lingüística Aplicada

Applied linguistics has been, since a long time ago, a well known field of research from which results have contributed to the solution of problems and the development of theoretical and practical approaches of teaching languages. The intersection between linguistic disciplines such as psychology, sociology and education, among others, belong to the theoretical field. The other face of applied linguistics is, in fact, that of praxis, as it is called by Culioli, which is the translation of notions, approaches and models of intersection linguistics (psycholinguistics, sociolinguistic, ethno linguistic) to the teaching of the languages. The goal of this course is the study of this fundamental field in the teaching of the languages.

In this seminar, students will have the chance to observe themselves and reflect on their practice, in addition to receiving feedback from their classmates and professors. Similarly, this seminar is the first step toward direct teaching enabling students to establish relationships between theory and practice.

On one hand, we will think about the products in their contexts and their consequences on a cultural market, and on the other, we will reflect on the act of writing itself on the topic of these texts.
