Our Portuguese classes are small, allowing for special  attention to each student. In Portuguese 101 and 102, you will acquire the four basic skills for communication: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Portuguese 201 expands these skills, and introduces students to brief cultural readings. Portuguese 202 emphasizes language, culture, and human and physical geography.  We also offer a summer study abroad in Brazil.  Portuguese fulfills the language requirement at the College of Charleston.
