WHY STUDY PORTUGUESE.
ANDREWS, NORWOOD, JR.
REASONS ARE ADVANCED FOR STUDYING PORTUGUESE, BASED ON THE IMPORTANCE OF THE PORTUGUESE-SPEAKING WORLD, ESPECIALLY BRAZIL, TO THE UNITED STATES. DISTINGUISHED PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT, BUSINESS, AND EDUCATION NOT ONLY TESTIFY TO THE NEED FOR PEOPLE TO LEARN THE LANGUAGE BUT ALSO NOTE THE ADVANTAGES OF SUCH STUDY. LANGUAGE STUDENTS ARE ADVISED THAT THERE IS A PARTICULAR SHORTAGE OF TEACHERS OF PORTUGUESE, AND SPANISH MAJORS ARE URGED TO CONSIDER IT AS HALF OF AN HISPANIC (AND LATIN AMERICAN) WHOLE. AT THE COLLEGE LEVEL, PORTUGUESE AND LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY PREVALENT. AN APPENDIX LISTS COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES WITH PROGRAMS IN PORTUGUESE AND RELATED LATIN AMERICAN AREA STUDIES. ADDITIONAL SOURCES OF INFORMATION ARE ALSO INDICATED. (AF)
