The Intermediate course – The main objective of this course is to enhance the students’ abilities to converse freely on a variety of topics such as work, travelling, study, leisure time, etc. Students will concentrate on speaking freely, reading and listening. This is the most difficult level at Português Carioca due to the amount of grammar structures involving different verbal tenses, such as the imperfect and the subjunctive mood(the most difficult verbal tense for students to understand). Students also learn parts of a sentence, connectives, etc. At the end of this course students will be able to hold a conversation in various situations outside the classroom as well as construct long sentences using more complex words and grammar.
