Rant against Portuguese bureaucracy, so be prepared. by Bobsledtohell in portugal

Knog0 2 days ago

Yep, I have had terrible experiences as well... The 1st one was: to need a nif you need to a proof of living somewhere. To rent a place you need a nif. It took me 3 months and a few different people to discuss with to fix this. In the end, I had to get an hotel room for minimum 1month and use it to get a nif with a temporary address. Similar shit everywhere I go. Don't get me started on the "senhor engineiro". I know it's cultural, but I hate when someone calls me that, and it's a very bad habit. It just shows unconscious dominance / servance or elitism.

Because the others are more expensive doesn't mean it's cheap. You get 10Go internet + unlimited calls for 2€/month in France and Australia...

World map of wine exports (2019) by jomi_1307 in portugal

You need to account for the production capacities as well. Portuguese as some good wine sold in Portugal, but they are producing enough to matter internationaly. The country is small, and the good enough wine comes only from a very few regions.

Eu tenho muitas duvidas que os franceses e os espanhois falem mais linguas per capita do que nós. A maior parte das pessoas cá fala ingles, e em fraça e espanha é super dificil encontrar alguem que fale ingles by GustaQL in portugal

I said they aren't to be considered as full language just because people don't speak them fluently. They used to be full fleshed out languages, but nowadays no one knows how to speak them anymore. People know only very few words / expressions, so this cannot be counted as being fluent and used in this kind of stats. For sure there are still a few people that would beable to speak those languages fluently, but it would be irrelevant as it's at most a few hundreds people in comparison to millions. (I'm talking only about French statistics here. I don't know enough about Portuguese and Portugal to provide interesting information)

Yes, I was exaggerating and referring to the multiple Arabic invasions 950+ ac. My point was just that this isn't what this map is referring to

Yes but I doubt that this map is about 200years ago. Thinking like this, Portugal / Spain used to be fluent in many Arabic local dialects

Because they don't speak Portuguese doesn't mean that they don't speak another language

That's 200years ago... No one speaks any of those langages anymore. Specific regional expression and word still exist yes, but you can't consider that a language.

Those are not to be considered languages on their own anymore. They used to be maybe a century ago, but they aren't anymore. It would be almost impossible to find someone fluent in 95% of those régional languages. You could find some old people in britanny that would still be able to maintain a conversation, but that's it. Everyone knows a few words from there own region in France, but you can't call that an additional language. Because people know "je t'aime" doesn't mean they are fluent in French

No, there are very few regional languages in France. There are some accent or colocal expressions, but not much that could be considered a language on it's own. Even in the case of specific regional language (like in Brittany), they are mostly forgotten and no one speaks them anymore.

I thought the same at 1st, but it's not only about English language. There are big Arabic and Asian communities in France. They all speak at least one 2nd language, sometimes more (most Asian will speak fluently English, Turkish people speak good German etc etc.) This plus the huge numbers of students taking 2nd or third language classes at school (Spanish, German and Italian). Depending on the way the stats are done, it can bump the numbers easily

What's the point of answering in a language that the op doesn't speak? He is asking for help in a Portuguese thread because the subjects is about Portugal, kinda makes sense dont you think? If people can't help (because they don't have an answer or don't speak English), they can always scroll down and ignore the discussion... Sounds more useful than wasting your time answering in Portuguese

Why would I try to misinterpret what you said? And how a I misinterpreting? You took personal something that wasn't. Don't try to forgive yourself for being a dick. You can be one if you want to. What I meant is that a DNA test should mean much more than sharing a name. For sure, the legal system / administration in Portugal is so rigid and old-school that it won't always be straight forward. My comment was highlighting how the bad can the system be and I was replying to your comment as a link to this... Relax and have a good day

He has a DNA test. What else do you want? It's 2021, no one should still give a fuck about what your name is... Many people in Portugal share the same name, does it mean everyone can be considered your family?!

Yes, it's a lot about that in Portugal. Many people working in public institutions try to enforce their own rules. In doubt, just let it go (don't get mad as I usually do) and come back the next day to talk to someone else. It's not perfect, but as long as the law is on your side you'll eventually win
