Learning Language Through Cultural Texts: Brazilian Portuguese

A materials development project to create resources for the study of Portuguese for language learners already proficient in Spanish.

Middlebury College proposes to expand materials used in the 2003 Portuguese School and develop technology enhances resources to facilitate the inclusion of extensive reading in Portuguese language classes. Materials will be based on lectures, films, and cultural and historical texts. An interdisciplinary team of experts in language, literature, and Brazilian studies from ten different institutions will review materials and adapt them to their own programs. These resources attempt to fill a gap between traditional language courses and more advanced content area courses that require extensive reading.
