Accelerating Beginning Portuguese with Prof. Rocha was a really great experience. The class is definitely fast-paced, and it's easy to fall behind a bit if you don't stay on track of your homework and assignments, but the lectures themselves were both very engaging and conducive to learning (a necessity for a course that meets 5 days a week). I would 100% take it again and would recommend it to anyone that is willing to dedicate a fair bit of time to Portuguese.

I love professor Fernando! He is a sweet person and an excellent professor. Tests are take-home and class lectures are mostly consist of students speaking in Portuguese. Homeworks can at times be a lot, with essays and practicing for short, in-class presentations, but they are very helpful to learning how to speak the language.

The movies are interesting and class lectures are though provoking. I took this class with a background in Portuguese so i imagine my experience in engaging with Brazilian media within the class would be different otherwise. Portuguese is not necessary however. The essays were fairly straightforward, however some materials were not as exciting and the class doesnt penalize you for skipping
