An Article in Portuguese (English Version)

An Article in Portuguese (English Version)

My first article in a series in another language. This is the English Version. Original in Portuguese.

Why in Portuguese?

This is not my first article in another language.  I wrote an article in Polish for an experiment.

Now I am in Porto, a city in Portugal. I hope to live in Portugal for a few years. And I want to improve my Portuguese level. I don't want to be an ex-pat living in a country and not speak anything of the language there.

So why not use my creativity blog and write an article every fortnight? I don't have a mountain of people reading here. It's easy to do an English translation with DeepL or manually.


I don't just want a random series. I have a basic plan with some goals.

  • Improve my Portuguese with articles every fortnight
  • Non-general topics. Specific to life in Portugal or other connection to Portuguese
  • I will test language resources on Ghost Blog. It is the platform for my blog.
  • In the end I will choose if I want another blog in Portuguese. Probably after my meeting with SEF.

Topics and Ideas

I need topics for a series of articles!

  • Things to learn and use European Portuguese.
  • Life in Porto.
  • Things a bit different in Portugal and England.
  • A tour or two of the best things for me (and you) in Porto.
  • Resources for people who want to move to Portugal.
  • Ways to practice and learn a language.

Finishing Up

And time for a Portuguese 'goodbye' or a few.


Até logo!

Boa noite!

Tchau tchau!
