Personal comments
Because I did not speak any Portuguese before I came to Lisbon, I was fortunate to notice that most people knew a little bit of English. After a few weeks it became easier to make myself clear to the locals, because of some phrases and words I learned in the language course. I talked mainly with my fellow international students who all spoke English very well, so this was not a problem.
