Crônicas Brasileiras: A Reader

Product Description

Crônicas Brasileiras: A Reader by Charles A. Perrone, Dario, Jr. Borim, Celia R. Bianconi

Crônicas are "urban chronicles" of varied character - short writings about everyday life, personal commentaries, entertaining story-like pieces, even quasi-editorials. This delightful collection is designed to assist students in developing their reading, speaking, and writing knowledge of Portuguese as it is used in present-day Brazil. With a proven track record in the classroom, this edition of Crônicas Brasileiras has been updated with 40 percent new material. New texts better represent how the language has evolved in Brazil since the late-nineteenth century. In addition to enhancing language proficiency, these lively vignettes help readers gain cultural knowledge and sharpen awareness of diverse Brazilian environments. Annotations, reading comprehension questions, grammar exercises, guided composition, suggestions for discussion, and a vocabulary guide make this book a great fit for those who have mastered elementary Portuguese grammar. More advanced learners will find the crônicas valuable for their colloquial style, linguistic variety, and literary significance.
