Your first “oh my God I’ve got to speak Portuguese in public” moment is probably going to happen in a coffee shop.
It feels like a running a gauntlet. What are the options? What is a meia-de-leite? Can I even pay with card here? Quick I’m holding up the queue… oh never mind. I wasn’t that thirsty anyway.
I’ve definitely been there. So my friends Ana, Miguel and I made this four-minute video explaining how to order a coffee in Portugal. Keep watching for a short dialogue between the native speakers!
Need more Portuguese expertise? The next crash course for beginners starts on 4th November. Find out more here.
Thank you to the awesome Selva café in Alcântara for hosting us for this video, and to the talented Miguel and Ana!
