Level II is designed for beginner students who have a working knowledge of the grammar covered in the first level course and continues to focus on improving your oral communication skills. While using a variety of regular and irregular verbs in the various tenses, including the introduction of the imperfect tense, you will practice describing yourself, others, and how you feel; discuss aspects of daily life; and make comparisons. Delving deeper into the nuances of Brazilian Portuguese, you will learn idiomatic expressions and the difference between formal and informal speech. Songs and short passages on the country’s geographic regions and customs will help round out your understanding of the Brazilian culture. Textbook chapters 5-8 are covered.
