You may not know that we offer one-year of Portuguese coursework every year (PORT 155 in the fall and PORT 156 in the spring). These 2 consecutive courses are designed for students who are already familiar with a Romance Language. The one-year of intermediate coursework in Portuguese that we offer has been steadily popular with Wesleyan seniors preparing for going abroad to Brazil or Portugal after they graduate from Wesleyan, but we would like to encourage students to think of Portuguese earlier in their career. All class years are welcome in the course and should contact Elizabeth Jackson (ejackson@wesleyan.edu) should they have questions.

What is particularly exciting about this coursework is that although students would “only” be doing one year of Portuguese, they would actually reach an early advanced level in Portuguese after that one year.
