Semantica makes video “novelas” to teach Portuguese step-by-step. After each episode, we break-down the dialog and present the grammar rules along with videos of Brazilians pronouncing the most challenging words. Then, we quiz the student on what was presented. It’s a great way to engage your students.
We have 7 different series of lessons across 3 learning levels: beginning, intermediate and advanced. The EDU package is complete. You can pick any series, and switch from one to another at any time.
The newest series, O Retorno is a 50-chapter novela designed to get the student to the B1 level of the European Framework for language proficiency. Higher levels can be reached via the novelas - see the table below.
Each of the novelas follow a consistent grammar syllabus and focus on core vocabulary and conversational skills.
