Learning European Portuguese in 6 Months: An Interview With Mia Esmeriz

So, when learning a second language, we should also try this – of course, we don’t need to do it exactly as we did when we were babies, because the context is different, but we do need to start listening to the language, if we ever want to learn it. All-In-One Portuguese Course is designed to help students learn without having to search for materials themselves, though, so if students want to have the work done for them, I would go for this course. I do think that it is very important that students get these sounds right from the beginning, because this will help them learn the language and understand the language much better down the road. While it is possible, and I even give my students the tools and resources to get there, it will depend a lot on the student and the amount of work the student is willing to put into learning the language.

The D7, the Golden Visa, or the D2: Which Is Right For You? – Portugalist

These visas are aimed at different types of people, including those that have money to invest in something like a property and those that may not have a sum of cash to invest but have a regular income from a pension or other source of funding. People that want to move to Portugal, but don’t want to have to spend 8 months per year physically in Portugal (the golden visa only requires you to spend 7 days per year here)People that don’t have the regular income typically needed for the D7 visa (e.g. a pension or remote job)People that aren’t ready to move to Portugal yet, but want to earn years that will count towards obtaining a Portuguese passport (e.g. people still working in another country)People that don’t want to move to Portugal at all, but still want to be able to get a Portuguese passportPeople that want the benefits of being resident in Portugal but not necessarily being tax resident here – Invest at least €500k in a qualifying private equity or venture capital fund Scientific Research – Invest in public or private scientific research amounting to at least €500k (€400k if in a low density area)Job People that don’t have €250k or more to invest in the golden visaPeople that want to spend the majority of the year (8+ months) in PortugalPeople that have a regular form of income (e.g. a pension, income from a rental property, or income from a remote job)

Portugal’s Startup Visa

The startup visa is aimed at tech entrepreneurs who want to launch a tech-based startup in Portugal or open a branch of an existing startup here. Over the past few years, Portugal has become an increasingly more interesting place for startup entrepreneurs due to its low to medium cost of living, it’s good weather and other lifestyle benefits, and the growth of its tech scene, which is partially thanks to the popularity of the WebSummit conference. The Startup Visa is specifically aimed at tech entrepreneurs and has much stricter requirements such as job creation and to reach a turnover of €325k within 5 years. One reason is that the startup visa allows you to relocate 5 applicants (co-founders or co-workers) to Portugal whereas relocation on the D2 is mainly focused on family members.
