Portuguese and Lusophone Society

Olá / Hello!
Welcome to the Portuguese and Lusophone Society!
We are dedicated to all Portuguese-speaking countries, so if you are interested in these in any way, join us. We aim to:
- Create a community of students who study Portuguese within the School of Languages and Cultures;
- Celebrate the culture of Portuguese Speaking Communities Worldwide through events and socials relating to the heritage of these countries;
- Forge links between native Portuguese speakers studying in Sheffield and non-native speakers (or those who wish to learn) through linguistic events, and integrate both groups into one community, to encourage speaking Portuguese on Campus;
- Work with related societies who have common aims and objectives, to diversify the involvement of the societies in Portuguese and Lusophone events and socials.
We will have weekly casual 'conversas no café' in various different places, which give you a chance to meet new people.
Expect many other online events, and we will bring back our BBQs, meals in Portuguese restaurants/cafés, and bar crawls when government guidelines allow us.
Our society costs £4 to join - you will receive a membership card, and this will give you discounts in bars, coffee shops, and, of course, our events!
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students' Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
