The Department of Portuguese offers POR 101, 102, 201 and 202 online. POR 101 and 201 are offered in the Fall; POR 102 and 202 are offered in the Spring; all four courses are offered in the Summer.

In a typical week during the academic year (Fall and Spring semesters), students can expect to:

  • complete grammar and vocabulary activities
  • read in Portuguese
  • write in Portuguese
  • listen to recordings and watch videos in Portuguese
  • interact orally in Portuguese through video and audio recordings
  • interact synchronally (“live”) with classmates and with the course tutor using a chatroom

In order to carry out these activities and be successful in an online Portuguese language course at UMass Dartmouth, students should expect to dedicate at least 6 hours per week to coursework. Summer courses are intensive and my require up to three times the number of hours of coursework per week.
