"Learning/Speaking Portugese" Lisbon Local Custom Tip by barryg23

Lisbon Local Customs: 158 reviews and 231 photos

Portugese looks remarkably similar to French and Spanish and anyone who can read either of these languages should have little difficulty reading portugese.

Speaking portugese is a completely different matter and we had trouble pronouncing words correctly and understanding what was being said.

Many portugese people speak good English, especially in Lisbon.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
