Pluralidades em Português Brasileiro is a five-week long online self-access course whose aim is to expand intercultural awareness and develop upper intermediate/advanced reading and listening comprehension skills regarding Brazilian Portuguese as a foreign language. An extra week was added to expand the topics of the course.
From a pluralist perspective, the course aims at exploring cultural topics and linguistic diversity. The course activities are based on contextualized use of Brazilian Portuguese in several communicative situations. Oral, written and multimodal texts are used to develop reading and listening comprehension skills, which requires prior knowledge of Brazilian Portuguese. The course also focus on vocabulary and grammar expansion, pronunciation awareness, meta-cognitive skills and critical thinking.


Boas vindas e introdução ao conceito de letramento crítico
-O objetivo deste primeiro módulo é discutir o conceito de letramento crítico, um modo socialmente engajado de olhar sobre a realidade, e apresentar o curso.

Módulo 1: Identidades
-Para entendermos diversidade cultural é importante entendermos antes a questão de identidades. Por isso, este módulo trata de identidades culturais!

Módulo 2: Identidades e culturas plurais
-Neste módulo procuraremos ampliar o conceito de identidade através de reflexões sobre as razões que levam dois irmãos de Taiwan considerarem-se também brasileiros. Além disso, há uma discussão que problematiza modos mais tradicionais de entendermos a constituição de famílias (unidade nuclear da formação da sociedade).

Módulo 3: Pluralidades em festas
-Este módulo trata de diversidade cultural. Por meio de exemplos e atividades, buscaremos mostrar como são ricas e diversas as expressões culturais brasileiras, principalmente as representadas pelas festividades populares das festas juninas.

Módulo 4: Sentir-se em casa em meio a pluralidades
-Este módulo retoma a questão de identidade refletindo sobre a maneira como as pessoas se identificam com lugares onde moram, seja a residência ou regiões específicas.

Charles H
by Charles completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
This course is an oddity in this genre (i.e., those offered in a language other than English) in that it is neither a language course for beginners, nor a course designed for native speakers (e.g., in this case, Brazilian Portuguese). It is appropriate for intermediate to early advanced students of Portuguse. It is one of the first courses to be offered starting this fall on a continual basis by UNICAMP (an internationally ranked institution, 2nd only to University of Sao Paulo in Brazil).

The purported theme is to raise awareness of socio-cultural plurality that exists in Brazil…
