The World Languages and Cultures Department supports the growing interest in Latin America with an expanded program for Brazilian Portuguese language. The main goal of the program is attaining early proficiency in listening, speaking and reading the language. Listening comprehension exercises are stressed at all levels and activities make use of multimedia resources.
