Student thesis: Master's Thesis


In the present work, we aim to study the context of bilingual Chinese-Portuguese PLNM students of the class we were assigned in our pedagogical internship from the point of
view of Interlanguage through the analysis of errors contained in the corpus that was collected. Therefore, the present investigation intends to focus on the results of our
quantitative analysis of errors collected from this corpus. In addition to presenting several theories as our basis for theoretical assumptions in a chronological order, we also briefly
demonstrate the situation of PLNM in Macau, together with the main characteristics of the linguistic situation of the city. We found that, after a series of didactic sequences taught
in our pedagogical internship, although the students showed a quite remarkable performance at the A2 / B1 level, they still needed to improve their expression in the
Portuguese language, especially in written expression. Bearing in mind the main perspective of interlanguage, we can understand that it is necessary to structure and
systematize the learning process of the students to improve their coherence and linguistic rigor, with particular regard to the elimination of fossilization of errors of competence and,
at the same time, failures of performance as defined by Chomsky (1965).
