|Portuguese term or phrase: 5º curso de Ensino Básico|
|Would someone who is personally familiar with the Portuguese school system be kind enough to explain this to me? Does "curso" correspond to a year? If so, is "5th year of primary education" a fair translation? How old would these students be, approximately?|
|English translation:5th year of primary education|
I'm not personally familiar with the Portuguese school system, but I totally agree with your English phrasing
I found this, however, which confirms that ensino basico is divided into 3 cycles and are the first schooling years, therefore I would think "5o curso" would be year 5
