This syllabus is designed for learners who are learning Portuguese as a foreign language. The aim is to develop their ability to use the language effectively for practical communication. The course is based on the linked language skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing, and these are built on as learners progress through their studies. The syllabus also aims to offer insights into the culture and civilisation of countries where the language is spoken, encouraging positive attitudes towards language learning and towards speakers of foreign languages.
From 2020 this syllabus will only be available in administrative zones 2 and 3. Check the administrative zones for your school.
We are withdrawing Cambridge IGCSE Portuguese – Foreign Language (0540). The last examination for this subject will be June 2021 (there is no option for candidates to resit after this date). We communicated this decision to schools in December 2018.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
We provide a wide range of support so that teachers can give their learners the best possible preparation for Cambridge programmes and qualifications. For teachers at registered Cambridge schools, support materials for specific syllabuses are available from the School Support Hub (username and password required).
