MetadataShow full item record
This Master research focuses the use of samba as a means of working culture in Portuguese as a Foreign Language class. For this, we conducted a content-based course about samba for Spanish speakers to analyze how the samba can be configured as a way to teach cultural aspects related to language and to identify the impressions of these learners about learning Portuguese through this cultural content. We assume the proposal that the place of language is the same as the culture, so there is no way to separate these two elements in the teaching/learning a foreign language. As a social manifestation of great representative for the Brazilian culture, samba was chosen in this research as a content that can reveal elements of cultural and national identity, thus, should contribute to the learning of Portuguese as a foreign language. The methodology adopted is qualitative and ethnography based and the procedures and data collection instruments were observation and notes, classes audio recording and questionnaires made at the beginning and at the end of the course. In this research, we verify the validity of using the samba as a pedagogical resource for teaching PLE, acting both as an initiator of cultural reflection in the classroom and as a voice that collaborates for the cultural discussion that is already started in class. Moreover, the samba was perceived by students as a source of cultural contact by several themes that his lyrics convey.
