Learn African Portuguese in Portugal

mozambique women1

At inlingua we are very used to working with people who need to learn African Portuguese for living and working in Angola and Mozambique.     

There is very little difference between European and African Portuguese. Certainly African and European Portuguese are very much closer to each other than Brazilian Portuguese. Some people find it a little easier to learn African Portuguese as, in general, it is spoken a little more slowly and with a clearer pronunciation.

There are some words that are different of course. Here are a few:

 

Angola

Portugal

Brazil

English

bazar

ir embora

to go away
