The portuguese classes we have are Fridays from 6PM to 8PM. The objective of these classes is to bring a little bit of the Brazilian culture to kids who weren't born in Brazil but have parents who were. The classes are to teach and strengthen the speaking, writing, and reading of the Portuguese language.
Through learning the language the can develop a better sense of self by learning not only the language but their origins . It also develops a sense of pride by knowing another language, and helps them better communicate with any family members who are still in Brazil and don't know how to speak English.
