This three-week program will engage 120 mostly heritage speakers of Portuguese, in grade one through grade eight, in 75 hours of age-and-stage appropriate language instruction around the theme "A trip through Three Portuguese-Speaking Regions: Portugal, Brazil and the Azores Islands". Student proficiency levels will range from Novice to Intermediate. The expected outcomes will be that all students 1) increase Portuguese proficiency levels by at least one level, 2) increase Portuguese cultural awareness, appreciation and knowledge, 3) increase interest in other Portuguese language learning programs throughout the school year within educational institutions and the community.
