Hello, just a quick post to share one of my favourite links with you, one that will be particularly helpful for anyone who wants to learn or improve their Portuguese: the website www.lisbonlux.com, which describes itself as “a guide to the luminous city” – referring, of course, to Lisbon – is great for a number of reasons.
- You get to do a lot of armchair travelling in that lovely city, which looks glorious in the summer light. Plus there are articles on easy trips to places outside Lisbon, to places such as Estoril, Sintra or Obidos.
- You are kept up to date with what is happening there (for example, every week, it seems, a tantalising new restaurant opens).
- But best of all, from a language lover’s point of view, its articles are written in both English and Portuguese, and well written too. It is so much easier reading an article and acquiring vocabulary in one language when you have a translation right next to it to refer to. Here’s a partial screen grab…
So, see you virtually in Lisbon, eh? Click on the “attractions” link on the LisbonLux website and you will definitely want to go there!
