Grammar teaching in Portugal

[Information provided in 1997 by Filomena Capucho.]

  • In fact, “formal learning” of Portuguese Grammar starts at Primary school (by the second year – average age 8) and goes on until the 9th year of scholarity (average age 14- 15). It is also formally taught in French as a foreign language, starting either on the 5th year or the 7th year (depending on the first foreign language pupils choose to have). I’m not sure if the same happens for English foreign language, but I can check with my colleagues (in fact, I teach French and French Linguistics at University, but since our students are mostly future teachers of languages at the secondary level, we are quite aware of what happens in that level…)
