TII Portuguese Language Program

TII Portuguese Language Program

Would you like to embark on learning the 4th most spoken language in the world, or to go back to your roots? Whether you are of Portuguese descent from Goa or your parents or grandparents came back to Lebanon from Brazil, or whether you just love Brazilian or Portuguese football, the language itself or the cultures behind it, this is the right program for you. It is designed to make you speak from day one. In short 20 hour courses, you tackle a variety of topics within contextualized everyday settings. Depending on your level, you practice sharing personal information, meeting people, interacting in a restaurant, getting around town, giving advice or expressing an opinion, talking about different places and traditions… The focus is on all four skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. 

If you are an absolute beginner who doesn’t have the time to commit to the regular program, this fall we have the right option for you: our Basic Portuguese special course. In 12 hours only, this course provides you with enough linguistic competence to understand and use daily expressions common to any part of the Portuguese-speaking world. The emphasis is on listening and speaking.
