Portuguese - CPS (PRT)

PRT 6610. New Trends for Teachers of Portuguese. 4 Hours.

Targets the implications of the new Portuguese Language Orthographic Agreement, approved in 1990, which changes the language dynamics and anticipates the expansion of Portuguese as a worldwide language. Already implemented in Brazil, the Orthographic Agreement goes into effect in Portugal on January 1, 2012. The different forms to write Portuguese among the Lusophone countries delay the language dissemination. Teachers of Portuguese must follow this new trend and offer an integrated perspective of Portuguese. Establishes a comparative analysis of the Portuguese-speaking countries, aiming at a successful integration in the teaching-learning process of the new rules. Exposes participants to content aligned with the system of assessment and certification of Portuguese as a Foreign Language (PLE).
