PORT 035 PZ -Portuguese Virtual Learning Community
Description: This course is a pilot project based on the experience of creating a virtual learning community for linguistic and cultural exchange in Portuguese and English with students at the UFRJ in Brazil and The Claremont Colleges. Students will be paired up with a conversation partner with whom they will have weekly written and oral exchange in English and Portuguese. Students will be able to exchange emails and hold skype conversations on their own schedule. We will provide a curricular structure for the exchange, which will include exchange stages, platforms and activities stressing specific vocabulary and grammar. There will be room for students from both countries to share topics and materials according to their own needs and interests. The ultimate goal of the community is to improve oral proficiency in the target languages through a meaningful experience of exchange. All levels welcome.
