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.

Professor Higa makes class super fun and engaging every single day. He is extremely (sometimes even overly) accommodating so even though this is a very easy class it does mean that you have to be disciplined and put your own work in if you want to improve in Portuguese since he will just let you put in whatever commitment you want.
