MIT students learn about Portuguese culture

For MIT students, learning about Portuguese language and culture extends beyond the classroom.

The New York Times describes Nascimento as being “gifted with one of the most extraordinary voices in popular music, a benevolent tenor that floats upward to a heartbreakingly pure falsetto.” Portuguese lecturer Nilma Dominique is third from right.
