American Councils for International Education and the Portugal-based, Camões, Institute for Cooperation and Language, I.P. are partnering to strengthen the study and teaching of Portuguese language and cultures in the United States of America, and to support world language education at large. The partnership will directly promote the National Examinations in World Languages (NEWL®), a series of language assessments in critical and less-commonly taught languages, including Portuguese.
The NEWL exams are endorsed by the College Board and available to U.S. and international high schools and institutes of higher education. NEWL assesses individual language proficiency, resulting in a language composite score that can be used to apply for college credit and/or placement in the targeted language.

Through cultural and language programs and its website, Camões, Institute for Cooperation and Language, I.P. offers tools and resources for Portuguese language learners and educators, and supports youth engagement internationally.
