The videotapes for all twelve units (Parts 1 and 2) of the integrated program are available only as a set.
Using a communicative approach, Travessia 1 and Travessia 2 are video-based materials for the teaching of Portuguese and Brazilian culture. They serve as the nucleus for a two-year course in Portuguese. Grammar is presented schematically with graphics, and contextually through dramatic skits emphasizing a particular grammatical concept. The videos contain grammar, cultural sections, short documentations, skits, music videos, and a full-length teledrama, "De Pernas Pro Ar, " with specific instructions on its use in class.
