Portuguese Culture

Other Considerations

  • Many Portuguese enjoy watching and/or playing football (soccer). The sport can often evoke intense emotions and passion. Indeed, football is usually a good point of conversation and a great way to bond with your Portuguese counterpart.
  • Consider what attire you are wearing if you are visiting someone’s home or a church. Singlets with thin straps that expose your shoulders, skirts that sit high above the knee or not wearing a shirt are considered inappropriate depending on the setting.
