ApPT-UA - Learn Portuguese with UA (Level A1.1)




The course Portuguese as a Foreign Language (European Portuguese) – proficiency level A1.1 (Initiation), according to the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CEFR) –, reflects the daily lives of the Portuguese and focuses on the reality of the Aveiro region. It is divided into 5 autonomous didactic segments, but which are related to each other, traversing a narrative where the paths of 2 Portuguese families intersect. The segments are composed of authentic materials: starting from a video – which is the fragment of a sequential narrative –, the intended functional, linguistic (in its 4 components: oral comprehension and expression, written comprehension and expression) and cultural skills are exposed.


At the end of the course, the learner is expected to be able to:

  • Understand and use familiar and everyday expressions, as well as very simple statements, which aim to satisfy specific needs;
  • Introduce himself and others, ask questions and give answers about personal aspects;
  • Communicate in a simple way, if the interlocutor speaks slowly and distinctly and to be cooperative;
  • Recognize aspects of Portuguese culture and, specifically, of the region of Aveiro.
