PLEASE NOTE: Our books are designed for classroom study. An answer key is not available for this book. Para a Frente! is a second-year Portuguese textbook for college-level students. It does a systematic review of grammar, adding fine points to the basics, and giving lots of exercises. It can be used in classrooms devoted to either Brazilian or European Portuguese.
The content of the lessons deals with familiar themes using the telephone, getting around hotels, doing banking, the family, problems in the airport, the weather, restaurants and food, using the post office, hobbies, cars, and daily life.
A major feature of the book is a Vocabulário temático, which lists vocabulary pertinent to the cultural content of the lesson in three columns one with vocabulary used in both Brazil and Portugal, one with words used in Portugal only, and the third with words used exclusively in Brazil.
The most charming part of the book is a series of wonderful readings by modern Brazilian authors, including Rubem Braga, Rachel de Queiroz, Monteiro Lobato, Carlos Drumond de Andrade, to name a few.
There is a wealth of oral and written exercises, together with suggestions for written themes.
This book has been the standard textbook for second-year Portuguese courses in the United States for almost twenty years.
