UM to hold Portuguese Language Day next Monday

The University of Macau’s (UM) Department of Portuguese will hold the Portuguese Language Day on Monday 18 April. The event will take place in two sessions, from 10:00am to 12:00pm, and from 3:00pm to 6:00pm.

This year’s event will kick off with an open lecture on learning Portuguese as a foreign language, presented by two graduating students from the department. The lecture will be followed by a presentation of UM’s Portuguese studies programmes. The two activities aim to provide some information about the teaching and learning of Portuguese language and culture at UM.

In addition to a Portuguese food festival, and singing and drama performances by students, there will also be the second edition of the Portuguese Language on-Campus Challenge and a guest performance by Josefina Lee dos Santos, a young UM alumna from the Department of Portuguese, who now works as an artist in Hong Kong.

The Portuguese Language Day is an annual event of UM that offers non-academic activities for Portuguese language learners. It aims to stimulate students’ interest in the Portuguese language and the diverse cultures of Portuguese-speaking countries by creating a comfortable and relaxing environment for Portuguese learners to practice the language with their teachers.
