I am looking for a Portuguese language partner from Portugal and not Brazil as I want to learn European Portuguese. I am planning on moving to Portugal soon so I want to take my learning seriously. I am a complete beginner so I will need a lot of help and as I can't talk much Portuguese I will have to talk some English which may help you. My preferred method of communicating would be via facetime. The ideal partner I am searching for would either be
1) A native Portuguese speaker that is a beginner in English so we can learn at a similar speed together
2) A native Portuguese speaker that can understand English too a good level and is willing to help me more than I can help them.
Let me know what you think and send me a message if you are from Portugal and not Brazil!
You are right, they are different and I am not only talking about the accent.
So @James I hope you find someone to help you with that.
I am Brazilian. We can understand the language of Portugal a little, but there are some differences.
Good Luck!</ul><pre class="tw-data-text tw-ta tw-text-large" data-placeholder="Tradução" id="tw-target-text" data-fulltext="" dir="ltr" style="unicode-bidi: isolate; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); border-width: initial; border-style: none; border-color: initial; padding: 0px 0.14em 0px 0px; position: relative; resize: none; font-family: inherit; overflow: hidden; width: 276px; white-space: pre-wrap; color: rgb(33, 33, 33); height: 72px; margin-bottom: -10px !important; font-size: 48px !important; line-height: 72px !important;">
You can also look for people from Angola, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, etcetera. It's easier to you to find people from these countries and they speak portuguese with Portugal accent.
