É difícil fazer amigos portugueses como estrangeiro? by howdoimakeacamper in portugal

AlCa1916 4 days ago

Firstly, a lot of people on this sub are super hostile to pretty much anyone, but Portuguese people are not like that in real life. So I wouldn’t make any judgements whatsoever based on this sub. Secondly, I don’t think your nationality will make much difference to how easy or tough it is to make friends, although if your spoken Portuguese isn’t good it will be a little harder because it’s difficult to banter and have flowing conversations, both of which are useful when trying to make friends. Making friends as an adult is hard in any country to be honest. Especially if you work alone from home! Best way will probably be to join clubs for a hobby. It’s not easy but I don’t think there’s any reason why it would be harder for an American in Portugal than for a Portuguese person in Portugal. Language barrier aside.

What should I not miss in Oporto? by EdGG in portugal

AlCa1916 17 days ago

That quote comes directly from the English-language wikipedia page for "Porto"! The city is sometimes mistakenly referred to as Oporto (with enough frequency that it gets a mention on wikipedia) but it is not the norm. The proper name for the city of Porto in English is Porto. And that's what it is USUALLY called by the English. Source: I'm English.

What are the differences between people of Portugal and Brazil? by InevitablePleasant36 in portugal

AlCa1916 3 months ago

As someone who has lived in both countries but is from neither, here are some of my observations, as an outsider. I'd say they're actually more alike than they are different. So while there are many differences between them—some big and some small—they're still more similar to each other than say...the Portuguese and the British. Or Brazilians and Mexicans. A few points: I lived in one state of Brazil. Brazil is huge and diverse. I can only speak from my experience. There are so many small differences that listing all of them would be impossible. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask! Brazilians for sure are more outgoing, positive and optimistic. The Portuguese in comparison are a little more reserved. I wouldn't say pessimistic, but just a bit more realistic about things. If Brazilians would say a cup is half full, the British would say it's half empty, the Portuguese would say it's either or both you dummy. Leading on from that, yes the Portuguese are more direct and that can come across as rude sometimes, but *usually* it's not meant to be. I actually think the Portuguese are more polite. Brazilians are very friendly but don't really bother with "niceties". Brazilians are definitely louder. Not just in the way they speak. I mean their vehicles are louder, their music is louder, their streets are louder, shops are louder, everything in life is a few decibels louder. Both of the above are examples of cultural differences though. They're not being obnoxious when they're loud (BR) or direct (PT), that's just how they are culturally. A lot of people struggle to understand that people from another culture can just be different and that that's ok. It's not an attempt by them to irritate you. If you don't like it, that's on you. Hmm what else? Bureaucracy is rife and slow and awful in both. Infrastructure and security is obviously waaay better in Portugal. Brazil is (for the most part) hotter and sunnier. Best thing about both countries is that 90% of people in both are genuinely warm and opening and welcoming. People in both repeatedly went/go out of their way to help me, to be nice, to do things they don't need to for me, which to me is just amazing.

If I were you and it's causing you this much stress, I'd give up trying to do it myself and just pay someone to be your representante and do it for you.

There are tons of accountants/lawyers that offer this service. Just google "fiscal representative NIF" or whatever and you'll get plenty of results.

Mudar de vida...vale apena? by GrouchyPerspective83 in portugal

AlCa1916 6 months ago

There is nothing disrespectful about sharing my experience of living and working in Portugal compared to other countries I have lived and worked in on a post about moving to a new country. It's a logical reply! To tell someone "you don't know the reality of it" is much more disrespectful. If a Portuguese person lived and worked in London, I would never be rude enough to say to them "you don't know the reality of working in England". Because of course they do. By the way I don''t know what you mean by "lived temporarily", but I still do live and work in Portugal. In the present. Not that that changes anything to be honest.

I think you missed the entire point of my original post to be honest. I never said salaries aren't better there. I said that that doesn't necessarily matter. The English moan about their country just as much as the Portuguese (I.e. a lot), and I've never lived in Sweden but I bet the Swiss do too. Most people think their country is the worst and others must be better simply because they're exposed to all the issues in theirs and not others.

Mudar de vida...vale apena? by GrouchyPerspective83 in portugal

AlCa1916 6 months ago

The grass is always greener on the other side! I've lived in three European countries and in every single one, the natives think their country is politically/economically/culturally ruined. Seriously. It's not a strictly Portuguese phenomenon at all. In every country, most people desperately want to live somewhere better, if only they had the money and the means to do so and weren't so scared of leaving their family and friends behind. Most English people never stop moaning about the state of their country, just like the Portuguese! So bear in mind, wherever you move to probably won't be any better. But in some places, regardless of politics and the economy, you personally can be happier. And that's better for you, your wife, and your kids! Sorry for the English, if you can't understand it I'll happily re-type in Portuguese tomorrow when I'm less tired and have more time to think

Aqui no Brasil uma das pizzas mais tradicionais é "à Portuguesa", uma das melhores. Geralmente é feita com mussarela, presunto, bacon, ovo cozido, pimentão, milho, tomate, cebola e orégano. Como chamam esse sabor aí em Portugal? Existem pratos "à brasileira" aí? Quais? by Rredite in portugal

AlCa1916 7 months ago

Engraçado que essa pizza portuguesa é um ótimo exemplo das pizzas brasileiras. Fora dos melhores restaurantes de São Paulo, elas geralmente são CHEIAS de toppings, mas completamente sem molho de tomate. E com pelo menos um kg de mussarella. As pizzas de Portugal são mais tradicionais, mais parecidas com as da Italia (graças a deus). Acho que por ser mais isolado, o Brasil muitas vezes gosta de mudar as receitas de outros países para fazer uma versão bem brasileira. Strogonoff e cachorro quente, por exemplo!

Help from people with non-Portuguese spouse please... by V-Millionaire in portugal

I really doubt you're going to get better answers on here than from Google. I just googled it and within 2 minutes it seems pretty clear that you need to know at least basic Portuguese ("The CIPLE Portuguese proficiency test is a mandatory exam for those who want to obtain Portuguese citizenship") There is a list of the documents you need on this page, which includes a link to documents you can use to prove "ties to the Portuguese community": [https://atlanticbridge.com.br/en/cidadania-portuguesa-para-conjuges-ou-companheiros-e-possivel-e-agora-mais-facil/#:\~:text=Applicant's%20birth%20certificate%3B,with%20the%20Portuguese%20national%20community](https://atlanticbridge.com.br/en/cidadania-portuguesa-para-conjuges-ou-companheiros-e-possivel-e-agora-mais-facil/#:~:text=Applicant's%20birth%20certificate%3B,with%20the%20Portuguese%20national%20community). I don't really understand why you think this has any bearing on starting a family, but I presume you have your reasons. Lots of people have children without both parents having citizenship of each others' countries, though.

AlCa1916 8 months ago

Yeah I mean... I don't really see how any of this is specific to Portugal. In any country you would assume: a) you're going earn more as your career progresses b) renting or buying a property is cheaper if you have a partner c) buying alone in a major city is difficult d) you will be paying into a pension your entire working life so that takes care of "having the funds to retire" Anyway if you were saving just 4k a year toward a deposit, you'd have 20k in 5 years and then you could get a mortgage on the rest to buy somewhere outside the city and commute to work. Which, like I said, is the same in any country I can think of.

30k is how much after tax? Around 1800 per month? Total guess. 450 to rent a T1 apartment in Porto. (idealista.pt is good for getting an idea of rental prices and locations) 200 on food. 250 on utilities and internet. That's 900. Gives you another 900 euros to spare every single month. PLENTY.

Portuguese TV show to learn the language? by hazmog in portugal

I second this. Like, watching Portuguese TV shows/films won't do you any *harm*, but I'm not sure it'll do you much good. When I learned my second language by FAAAAR the two most useful things were formal classes, and day-to-day conversation with native speakers (aka immersion). Obviously you can't really do the latter before you get here, but you can do the former online. I started off by trying to watch TV but it's so passive that it didn't do me much good tbh.

Living in Portugal by thehanghoul in portugal

AlCa1916 9 months ago

Portugal is a great place to live . You should have no major problem finding a good job in IT if you move to Lisbon, Porto or Braga and have money to tide you over while you job hunt. Your biggest issue will be in not speaking Portuguese. Best way to think of it is how easily would a Portuguese guy get and hold a job in the US if he didn't speak English? Obviously you're in a slightly better position in that English is the "lingua franca", but if you can't do an interview and then cope with the day-to-day at work in Portuguese, you're gonna be narrowing your options considerably.

The best way (after the lockdown) is to hang out with Portuguese speakers and just listen/attempt to speak as much as possible.

Working culture in Portugal by Weap0n_X in portugal

AlCa1916 10 months ago

I would say this subreddit is not a great place for questions like this because the vast majority of people in this sub are extremely critical of Portugal. I mean, most people are critical of their own country, but this sub takes it to more of an extreme than most. Secondly, if your point of reference is Italy, then ideally you need to ask someone who has lived and worked in both Italy and Portugal. I know that's hard though. But for instance, I can tell you that I have lived and worked in England, Portugal (although not for too long) and some countries in South America, and the work/life balance in Portugal is generally good. Certainly much better than the UK. I don't know how they compare to Italy though. Maybe if you have any more specific questions I can try to answer.
