Back to school

A group of stall holders from Portimão’s municipal market has started English language lessons to improve their sales skills with foreign residents and visitors.

Stall holders requested the language course, which has been provided for free through a partnership between Portimão’s parish council, Câmara and employment and training institute.

This 50-hour course, which will last until the end of August, will teach stall holders to greet their customers, count, name their products and hold a simple conversation in English.
