What's Included

Intermediate Portuguese 1 - Saturdays, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm, starting on January 10th, 2015 Here students will learn about verbs that are commonly used to describe one’s morning routine and also express mutual actions between two people, such as “we help each other” (nos ajudamos). They will also learn new adjectives to describe personality traits and new nouns to talk about food, order at a restaurant, and follow a recipe. In class and at home, students will continue to talk about actions that happened in the past while incorporating new verbs into this tense. Teachers will continue to help students pluralize difficult words, and will also introduce the use of direct object pronouns. We will also learn how to make comparisons and express preference for certain foods, places, and people. In conversations with each other, students will talk about their childhood and their past experiences using the imperfect tense. This course will also engage students’ conceptions about the typical Brazilian, and challenge the way Brazil is portrayed in news, art, and popular culture.

About This Organizer

Since 2006 our goal is to bring Brazilian culture to the Windy City.
We are the only Portuguese language school in Chicago and we take that responsibility very seriously. Brazil in Chicago was founded in January, 2006 by Marcelo Jarmendia. After teaching languages in Brazil and the United States for over six years, he decided to open in Chicago a school that would not only teach his native language, but also share with Chicagoans his passion for his culture. Thanks to his relations, he was able to build a network of professionals working with all aspects of Brazilian culture, allowing our students to venture into capoeira, samba, music, and Brazilian cuisine.
