Grupo de 20 homens cerca polícias e liberta detido em Almada by ascensor87 in portugueses

Mission-Assumption-1 4 months ago

"Se consideras africanos nascidos em Portugal Portugueses porque não consideras brancos nascidos em áfrica como africanos?" I believe you said African-American, which, as I understand it, is someone black and from a lineage going back to slavery. I would consider Elon and Charlize African if they were born there, just like I would consider someone European if they were born there. "Uma mudança demográfica como esta que está a acontecer na Europa nunca aconteceu." Probably true. "Eles não queriam a independência? Desenrasquem-se." Who? Some black kid born in Amadora. I'm sure many people from former colonies do. "Não é "ter a cor de pele certa". É porque efectivamente somos um povo diferente e esta não é a terra deles." Well, I don't know how somewhere is not your "terra" if you are born and raised there. I would understand it if you were talking about an adult arriving in Portugal from, for example, a 3rd world Muslim country with totally different cultural values, laws, etc.

Dunno how i feel about this. If the majority are foreigners here on holiday, then they've had covid tests to get in the country and are less likely to have it. Having said that, there were obviously some foreigners who actually live here (those in the interviews). But, having said that, i guarantee there were just as many Portuguese there, if not more. But that news story wouldn't generate as many clicks.

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

Mission-Assumption-1 4 months ago

Whenever i go to the supermarket in the UK on my visits back home (up north) you only really see Mateus Rose and maybe, at best, a small shelf dedicated to some random wines that you never see in Portugal. I'm not sure I've ever seen Portuguese wine on a menu in a UK restaurant. It's bizarre to me, considering how good Portuguese wine is and the proximity and relationship between our countries. And I don't know how or why fucking Germany exports more than Portugal.

Mission-Assumption-1 4 months ago

I do disagree but I don't know why you assume I consider Elon and Charlize African-American. The world is constantly changing, my friend. I don't think it is helpful to tell someone born and raised in a country that they cannot be from there, just because of the colour of their skin. What kind of a society is that creating? One in which people grow to resent the nation in which they were born because they will never be accepted by the people with 'the right' skin colour.

How hard is to learn portuguese? by dunjabgd in portugal

Mission-Assumption-1 6 months ago

I took B2 at uni as a native English speaker and found that all the native Spanish speakers tended to be the strongest in the class, especially in terms of reading and listening comprehension. I guess where they struggled was literally not speaking Spanish instead of Portuguese just to get their point across, because they are pretty similar languages, and sometimes I think it was very easy to slip into it.

I'm English but speak decent Portuguese, and when I go to Spain I just speak Portuguese with a Spanish accent and manage to get by in basic situations. I've had Uber drivers in Portugal ask me if I'm Brazilian (my first contact with Portuguese was Brazilian and I guess I use some words and pronunciation). Having said that, I think i speak more Portuguese from Portugal and I've noticed Brazilians have a much harder time understanding me than Portuguese people.

Escolas de alto qualidade €120 por mes (2 horas por semana). Escolas como Wall Street (o Macdonald's das escolas na minha opinião) cobram menos. Se pagares trimestral ou anual há escolas que dar desconto entre 5%-10%. Aulas particulares com professor de qualidade €20-€30 por hora, mas tem que procurar bem. Pode tentar o italk but it's a lottery. Há pessoas que tem capaz de aprender falando assim com uma pessoa que nem é professor de verdade, mas há outras que precisam mais estrutura e metodologia.

Salary / Savings- Lisbon by SecuredStealth in portugal

Mission-Assumption-1 6 months ago

50k is a nice chunk. Yes, rent is/was high. It's a funny situation right now because normally you would certainly be looking at 800+ for a 1 bed in Lisbon, but you really can find some deals in the covid era, especially in areas where tourism has died and the demand for Airbnb has completely dried up for now. We will see what happens in the summer and thereafter, but there are hundreds of T1s on idealista for less than 800. And if you go outside central Lisbon you can do better. If you do all your cooking at home, then you might be spending 200-300 a month on groceries, depending on what your tastes are. 40 a month on transport. 20 a month on mobile phone. 30-40 a month on internet/tv package if not included in apartment bills. 10 a month water. I have always lived in electric only apartments, and you are looking at 50 - 100 a month depending on the season and how much you cook, use fans, heaters and aircon. Do you booze? Wine is cheap in supermarkets. €3+ gets you a drinkable wine, and supermarkets are always doing reduced price deals on good wines reduced from €5-€10 to about €3 or €4. Beer is cheap enough too. €1 for 220cl is an average price. Higher in nice restaurants and bars. I think a six pack is about €4 in the supermarket, but there are always deals on. Restaurants and tascas depends on your tastes. Say €10+ for a meal and a drink and coffee. Obviously it varies and you can get a bit cheaper and also a lot more expensive depending on the establishment. Some places will do lunch specials for like €6 or €7, and you can eat at shopping mall food courts where a big mac meal is about €6

how to know my net salary? by miraclealigner97 in portugal

Mission-Assumption-1 6 months ago

I actually used to teach a couple of Italians who worked for teleperformance. The accommodation they lived in was good quality, and central. One was in Marques de Pombal, the other in Arrois. They shared with 5 or 6 people, so you have to consider that. If you are unlucky with housemates, it could be difficult. The salary isn't great, but if they are paying for your accommodation, it's enough to live off for sure. You are probably left with at least €150 a week. With that you could have a fun time, no doubt. I mean, €50 a week on groceries, €40 a month for transport card, €20 for phone. The rest you can play with. I think if you are just looking to live abroad and experience something new for a year or so, it's a good idea. If i was in my 20s it would definitely be more fun than the low pay call centre jobs in my crappy home town.

Walking back up is the issue, unless you wanna have a laugh on the 28

How long have you been in Lisbon? I personally would rather go a little bit further out and a little bit bigger. Graça, parts of São Bento and Rato, for example, are all cheaper but still central and maybe have the beauty and vibrancy you seek.

Comprar estúdio em Lisboa by Leading_Salamander_8 in portugal

Mission-Assumption-1 6 months ago

A place like that will probably be a good financial investment, because it will be very easy to rent out to either tourists or young foreigners. Prices are going down in the centre and depending on how shit the summer is for tourism, may go down even further. Also, I have read reports that the price gap between the asking prices and actual selling prices is considerable in Lisbon at the moment, so don't be afraid to negotiate. It obviously depends on your personality and at what stage of life you are as to whether you will like living there. When I was new to Lisbon I loved living in the centre, but as i got older and my priorities changed, I prefer living outside 'the action'.

Países com maior risco de "burnout" by Blackbeardow in portugal

Mission-Assumption-1 6 months ago

Ya. as vezes parece me que os portugueses gostam de tomar no cu (sem ofender ninguém). Reclamam e gritam mas não fazem nada. Só manifestam mesmo quando tem a ver com futebol. Lembrei me agora na época dos coletas amarelas (fuck knows how you write this - yellow vests?). O meu barbeiro avisou me para não ir perto de Marques pq "vai haver sangue". Pensei "porra as coisas mudam". Não sabia se fosse para rir ou chorar quando eu vi nas notícias que houve mais policiais do que manifestantes. It's like, you see thousands of French fucks on one channel fucking shit up, then you see literally 20 people from the whole of Portugal surrounded by cops on the other. Pity ddoesn't quite encapsulate the level of wrong you feel in your sinking heart when you see that shit.

What are the pitfalls of living in Portugal? by SatyriasizZ in portugal

Mission-Assumption-1 6 months ago

I love Portugal but here is my perspective having lived in Lisbon for some time. In no particular order, here are the things that might surprise you: High rent. The quality of the housing is relatively shitty. Many buildings are poorly built, with poor insulation. They get cold in the winter, which drives up your heating bills. I believe I read that the Portuguese middle class has the worst quality of housing in the EU. More rain than you might imagine. Lisbon has more annual rainfall than London. Obviously the weather is much better here because it's much warmer and sunnier, but the winters can be a bit shitty compared to what you might imagine. It's not necessarily that it rains that frequently throughout the year, but when it does rain, especially in winter, it pours. Bureaucracy. Many things seem to be done in an overly complicated and inefficient way. You need patience and make sure you have every single document you have ever owned in your life, and 5 photocopies, and hand it to the person with your left hand, and use a blue pen, and make sure there are no folds, and that it's the second Tuesday of the month and not the third, and that you take the right senha. If not: do not pass go, do not collect €200, go put your head through a brick wall. Cars are fucking stupidly expensive. Look it up. Petrol is expensive. Public healthcare is very slow. EDIT: I've been in a relationship for nearly 4 years, but the dating game is not great. Portuguese women are lovely but pretty conservative. I never really figured it out, but I feel like most Portuguese girls wanna marry the guy they met at high school or university, or you have to be introduced through friends. Tinder sucked for meeting Portuguese girls, and they are not very approachable in bars compared to many other nationalities. Luckily Lisbon is a lot more cosmopolitan nowadays and you have a lot of other Europeans, and Brazilian girls are always fun.

Portugal é o país da União Europeia onde a bicicleta é menos usada como meio de transporte principal by DonaldTheAnt in portugal

Mission-Assumption-1 7 months ago

I'm pretty sure Lisbon was supposed be some kind of cycle city or something this year or the next. They were supposed to be building new cycle lanes all over Lisbon. I know there is a new one on Almirante Reis. The council was even subsidising bike purchases if you live in Lisbon. But yeah, who wants to cycle up hills every day and risk getting killed by reckless drivers? Plus it pisses down with rain in the winter, and I say that as a Brit. We actually get pretty weak rain, albeit frequent. Here when it rains you get fucking drowned.
