Todd’s message:

Anyone who thinks you don’t have to know literature for the Rio Branco exam should take a look at the Christian x Muslim TPS text from last year (very literary in language) and the Portuguese translation from Orwell in the 3rd phase this past year! Don’t push it away … it will come back to haunt you! And speaking of haunting, who has the sharpened sense to fancy Poe mad!? Look forward to seeing who can answer these TPS questions! There is a prize people! 🙂
