Brush up on some Portuguese vocabulary

Familiarize yourself with basic Portuguese as a good day / afternoon / evening, special words like help, even how to order coffee properly.
In Portugal, if you order a coffee you will receive an espresso, which may be too strong for some people who prefer a meia de leite (half coffee and half milk), a galão (a dose of espresso with triple the milk) , or any other coffee-based blend.
