Our summer Portuguese course helps students gain intermediate skills in spoken and written Portuguese quickly by building on their prior knowledge of another Romance language (Spanish, French, or Italian). By relying on the many similarities with other Romance languages, students can focus on mastering the different aspects of Portuguese, allowing them to make very quick progress and to develop their abilities for further study at the advanced level or for professional purposes. Prerequisite: at least one year of recent college-level study of Spanish, French, or Italian.

All students enrolled in Accelerated Portuguese will conclude the program by participating in an ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview. Each student will then receive an independent, certified rating that documents the student's speaking ability.

This course provides 140 contact hours and participants may be eligible to receive a FLAS grant from their home institution or from UChicago to support their study. The SLI accepts the FLAS award as full tuition for summer Portuguese.
