Postgraduate Courses

Centre of Latin American Studies

 

Brazilian Portuguese classes

The Centre of Latin American Studies arranges classes in Brazilian Portuguese for MPhil and PhD students, taught by our Teaching Associate, Dr Viviane Carvalho Da Annunciação. These are free for students, with the cost covered by the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. Classes are only open to those with at least degree-level Spanish, which means that the pace of learning is fast.

Places are limited. To apply for a place, you must email your application form to Chriselia de Vries (admin@latin-american.cam.ac.uk) by Friday, 6 October 2017. Staff in related areas may also apply for a place in the same way. 

There are beginners and intermediate streams available, according to the timetables below. Classes are held in Room 204 at Centre of Latin American Studies, located in the Alison Richard Building on the Sidgwick Site. More information about the classes can be found here.

Students wishing to participate in the intermediate class should have been learning Portuguese in a fast-paced environment for at least 1-2 years, or have acquired a similar level through time spent in a Portuguese-speaking country. They may be asked to attend a short meeting with Dr Da Annunciação before teaching starts to check that their skills are at the right level.
