    Has anyone had experience with Portuguese language schools? I've looked online at several in Portimao, but they have disconnected links, or don't have a lot of detail of what they offer.

    I'm a US citizen, my husband is Mexican. He has lived here for about 12 years, and has been building a house in his hometown of Zacualpitan, Hidalgo.
