Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
The closest course, by level of proficiency required, is PORT 2006, targeted at Americans who took the previous five semesters of Portuguese. Portuguese for Heritage Speakers targets those who have never taken the language in an academic setting, but instead grew up with Portuguese at home and never were exposed to adult "academic" language in childhood. The issues targeted for these students are very different from those handled in courses in Portuguese for non-Portuguese speakers.
GWSB-Foreign Lang. or Culture
This course is the equivalent for "third year language requirements" for all GW programs, including ESIA's undergraduate language requirement.
