I want to write Portuguese characters

Pleco offers several characters foreign language options for writing in English, Chinese, PinYin, Japanese, Russian, Pinyin, Greek, and Latin. You only need to install the app on your iOS or Android mobile phone. It’s also free.

Pleco was useful while living in China and learning writing PinYin on the first two levels of Chinese as it was to write in Portuguese. My English and Dutch friends in Portugal had never heard of it but it makes difference in both languages.

I want to translate from English to Portuguese

At last, I’d like to mention the Cambridge English Dictionary, one more helpful online tool that I’ve been using for many years, and allows all my English and Dutch friends residents in Portugal to search for vocabulary. It’s a great tool to look for translating a sentence up to 160 characters, enough for writing an email in Portuguese and very accurate.

Learning a foreign language is funny, it can help while travelling and make friends, when we experience other countries’cultures. Life skills are essential, too!

Specialitá – Specialism

Aos portugueses: se quiserem e precisarem de editar textos, vou escrever um blog post sobre o tema: English writing skills essential tools. As ferramentas de trabalho são todas gratuitas e a trabalhar bastante já nós estamos habituados. Com a internet, fazemos tudo sozinhos e chegamos onde nos proposermos.

Aos portugueses emigrantes que começam finalmente a chegar, bem-vindos!

I'm a seek learner and curious teacher in constant self - improvement mode. Currently celebrating diversity, multilingualism, people, and their culture. After three years of living in Southeast Asia, and China, I'm moving to the UK to take care of my lifelong project on education: leadership and management! I dedicate this website to my boyfriend and mentor, who taught me about courage, to my 11 years old Thai student, June, from whom I learned what teaching is about, and to all my Chinese students from the Han majority and all 55 minority groups across China. May God bless your ways, in safety. A foreign language curious, human and woman, a traveler. A daydreamer!
