This is a beginner's Portuguese course for students with a strong Spanish language background and little or no knowledge of Portuguese. They learn to use their knowledge of Spanish to gain competency and confidence in speaking Portuguese. They learn to minimize the confusions that can result from the similarities of the languages. The emphasis is on eliminating Spanish phonetics, vocabulary, and sentence structure from their Portuguese speech. After completing this course, students can take Portuguese Level 3. Prerequisite: fluency in Spanish.
