PORT 101-106 is an integrated sequence of courses, rather than six individual courses. This sequence gradually develops the student’s proficiency in the spoken language, in writing (including grammar) and in reading. Text material ranges from short stories to longer narratives and poetry and includes culture and civilization topics. Students’ individual needs and interests will help determine the exact nature of each course. A detailed personal record of reading progress is maintained to assure the systematic development of each student’s facility in literary criticism. Courses may be taken in any order.
