It’s not hard to start to learn a foreign language, but it’s really hard to know how we can practice the language so that it can be well used in our daily work or life. So we’d like to suggest that the students might be conscientious of what should learn at the very beginning of the course and how can practice the knowledge learned in class. Taking the translation, for example, we should know very well not only Portuguese but also our mother tongue before we can start to do so, but it is also important for us to know more about the society, the culture, the literature, and so on, of the countries.
