About this course

Do you want to be able to speak more Portuguese and build on your basic skills? This Portuguese Intermediate course is for you.
You will benefit from being in a classroom, from exchanging face to face with a supportive tutor and others as you practise speaking and enjoy learning the language. You will build on your previous knowledge of basic key phrases, vocabulary, simple grammar and culture.

By the end of the course, successful students will be able to:
• Describe (people, places, situations, events etc)
• Exchange/extract key information on a variety of topics/situations
• Give and follow specific instructions
• Make simple arrangements
• Express an opinion
• Listen and respond to information from a range of sources (telephone messages, news headlines/public announcements, instructions, conversations)
• Grasp general meaning of written material (e-mails, mobile text messages, letters, notices, leaflets etc)
• Deal with emergencies, problems and complaints

You will be given homework to reinforce classroom learning.

How will I be taught?

The emphasis on this course is on listening and speaking. The lesson focus on language that is required in authentic situations. To help you develop language skills the course will be conducted mainly in the foreign language. You will work through different activities individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources (role-play, games…). To ensure your progression, it is essential to attend on a regular basis. We also recommend that you spend 1 – 2 h each week doing private study as directed by your tutor.
With your tutor, you will monitor and record your progress on your learning plan (ILP)

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?

After this, the next appropriate follow-on course is an Intermediate or Intermediate Plus course depending on the progression reached. The tutor will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.

What do I need to join the course

For anybody who is looking to improve the practical speaking and listening skills needed to cope with day to day scenarios when travelling and socialising in Portuguese speaking countries.
This course follows on from our Portuguese Beginners Plus. Students need to have completed one of our Beginners Plus courses or have learnt basic Portuguese in the past. Students should be able to use simple phrases or words such as greetings, asking for and giving personal information, asking for directions, ordering food and drink, using grammar at Beginners level.
If you are unsure, please carry out our self-assessment test available on www.kentadulteducation.co.uk or in our Centres. The assessment provides a score to help you chose the best course for you. If still unsure, please speak to us or to a Curriculum Leader.
