Bulletin Description

PORT 1010 Basic Language Skills I
3 hours per week; 3 credits.

The first in a three-semester introductory sequence for beginners. Emphasis on basic social functions, simple conversation, readings, and writing. Introduction to the cultures where Portuguese is spoken.

Prerequisites: Open only to students with no prior experience with the language. All other students must take the Brooklyn College language placement test.

«An important part of the contents is the analytical- epistemological quality of the position taken by the educator before the contents. In other words: it doesn’t matter how important the contents are. Its effective importance is in the way students learn contents and incorporate them into their everyday practice. That’s why teaching contents is more serious and complex than only speechifying about the very contents.»

Paulo Freire
Politics and Education, 1992
