About this course

Do you often travel to Portugal or other Portuguese speaking countries? Do you feel stuck and not able to make yourself understood?
This 11 week Portuguese course in Tunbridge Wells will teach you how to exchange information in everyday situations or in a business environment.
You will benefit from learning in a classroom, from exchanging face to face with a supportive tutor and others as you practise speaking and enjoy learning the language.

By the end of the course successful students should be able to:
- give and receive basic greetings and personal information
- enquire about prices for renting cars, houses etc
- use numbers (time, prices)
- explain a problem with bills/house
- practice with simple business terms and write a simple business e-mail
- purchase items in shops

Basic Portuguese grammar will be taught and students will also gain an insight into the culture.
You will be given small amounts of homework each week (max 1hr) to reinforce classroom learning.

How will I be taught?

The focus will be on oral communication (speaking and listening) and some reading and writing will also be included. Pronunciation and culture are an integral part of the course. The course will be conducted mainly in the foreign language. Learners will work through different activities individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources (role-play and games etc). Homework set will provide an opportunity for self-study.
Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. Each student's starting point will be recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets will be set. This will be revisited at the end of the course to monitor and record progress. The tutor will give written or verbal feedback.

What do I need to bring with me?

The course book will be discussed at the first session if appropriate. Students will need to bring a pen and paper and an A4 ring binder for handouts, although we advise students not to buy anything until after the first session.

What can I do next?

The appropriate follow-on course is another topic related Portuguese course to expand your learning. The tutor will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.

What do I need to join the course

This course is for students with some previous knowledge or those who already know some basics structures of the language. This course is more conversation based to help you in everyday situations such as renting a house , dealing with builders. It will focus more on key vocabulary and full structured sentences helpful when vising Portuguese speaking countries.
If you are unsure, please speak to us or to a Curriculum Leader.
