We are thinking about moving out to Portugal and I'm trying to learn the language. The problem with Duolingo for Portuguese is that the flag shows Brazilian, so it is presumably Brazilian Portuguese which I'd be learning with them. However, they don't make it clear which version they are using, nor what the differences are. If anyone can recommend another good Portuguese course, it would be appreciated.

However, having just got back from northern Portugal, many people there also speak French, so we could still communicate :)

I think many of them are, look here: http://www.learningportuguese.co.uk/ which is a good resource (I'm just beginning to learn also)

Obrigado Elizabeth_S. I had found that site, but still trying to work out what it provides. There's a lot on grammar and pronounciation which many sites steer clear of, but that, in conjunction with a speaking practice site, should be fine for what I want.

Tchau
