In this follow-up course Portuguese for beginners of the University of Groningen Language Centre your grasp of the Portuguese language will continue to increase. It will become easier for you to make small talk and you are expanding your vocabulary and your knowledge of grammar. As the teacher is Brazilian, we will use the book ‘Samba!’ and focus on Brazilian Portuguese and Brazilian culture. Venha sambar com a gente!

The course is taught in Portuguese as much as possible, with explanations provided in English when necessary.
