The Portuguese speaking world is a cultural space spread across three major continents—the Americas, Africa, and Europe. Of particular importance is Brazil. Knowledge of Brazilian Portuguese, taught here, opens up opportunities in foreign language teaching, cultural studies, international trade or business, and international political affairs. Brazilian Portuguese is a vital component of the overall professional preparation for those who are specializing in Latin America.
“Liberdade é pouco. O que desejo ainda não tem nome.”
“Freedom is not enough. What I want does not have a name yet.”
—Clarice Lispector, taken from Perto do coração selvagem
