Brazilian Alliance also will be offering classes for Portuguese speakers as many of Portuguese descendent children who are born in the U.S. lack proper training in the Portuguese language. We will accomplish this by building alliances with different literacy programs that have been successfully teaching Portuguese language to children and adults. We hope to help increase Portuguese literacy in our community since many Brazilian immigrants have a first grade or less level of education and after moving to America they have less opportunity to learn, practice, and love the Portuguese language.
These classes will be held throughout the day during the week. Some classes may be offered on the weekends. Nominal fees may be required to cover class materials. Dates and times to be determined depending on our physical location.
We hope to begin offering these programs in the fall of 2010. Check back here for updates!
