HIGHLIGHTS -- Experienced and qualified teachers, structured teaching, communicative approach, and measurable results.
TEXTBOOK: Ponto de Encontro: Portuguese as a World Language, second edition (Pearson). The textbook is not included in the price.
There are many textbooks available for Portuguese. Teachers do not rely on a single textbook in their lesson plans. Lesson plans are created according to the needs of the classroom, teacher’s experience and the adaptability skills in view of the classroom's changing needs. Lesson plans can be independent of the prescribed textbook, but using a textbook yields the best results for beginner and intermediate students. It’s advisable, though not compulsory, to buy the prescribed textbook(s). Textbooks provide explanatory information that may be useful for a questioning adult student and for homework.
