Will Duolingo ever do Portugal Portuguese? I love learning on this platform but i would much rather be learning the European language rather than the south american one. I supplement my studies with other websites but Duolingo is just the best when it comes to grasping the sentence structure and understanding grammar.
Please, please, please make a Portugal Portuguese...
There's not going to be an European Portuguese course. But you can still use this one. The differences are not that significant and you will understand and be understood in Portugal. You can research about the differences (the most important is "estou comendo" becomes "estou a comer", and we use the 2nd informal personal pronoun "tu" instead of "você"). After a lot of immersion in ptPT it's not that hard to switch to this variety.
Bonus: You will understand well both varieties :)
i live in Lisbon and duolingo is helping me a lot. i never had problems understanding things. apparently one of the biggest differences between BP and EP are the reflexive verbs, which are very common in Portugal, and less common in Brazil. Example in Portgual you say "lembro-me", in Brazil "eu me lembro"
