Portuguese Self Assessment Test
The Portuguese Difference
Do you have some knowledge of Portuguese? Whether you took a class in High School, or grew up in a Portuguese-speaking household, expanding your current knowledge of Portuguese gives you an opportunity to develop an academic and professional strategy at RIC that will make you stand out in the workplace.
The Portuguese Self Assessment Test provides you with feedback on your proficiency in Portuguese and may help you with your class strategy at Rhode Island College. It can also be useful for thinking about how easy it might be to pursue a minor or major in Portuguese. If you understand Portuguese and are disappointed with your score, it only means that you need more exposure to the written and standard usage of Portuguese.
This Self Assessment Test assumes that you have had some prior instruction in Portuguese, or have been exposed to the Portuguese language to an extent that PORT 102 or above will be in your best interest. It is not intended for credit or testing out of the Second Language General Education Requirement. If that is your objective, you must complete a course at or above the PORT 102 level with a minimum grade of C.
Another option might be to enroll in PORT 115, which fulfills two Gen Ed Requirements simultaneously, the Second Language Requirement and the "Literature" Category of the Distribution Requirements. Although, by enrolling in PORT 201, you can complete the first course counting toward a Minor in Portuguese.
