New members of the Cape Verde forum, introduce yourselves here - 2022

Hi all,

Newbie on the Cape Verde forum? Don't know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country,
or to tell us more on your expat projects in Cape Verde if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

Boa tardi! My name is Phillip (or Felipe). I just moved to Praia and will be here until April for the purpose of studying Portuguese and Kriolu. I will be taking Portuguese classes at a local university. I'd be interested in meeting up with any expats nearby for a drink or a coffee. If anyone knows where to take Kriolu lessons, please send them my way. Obrigado!

Hi Felipe,

Benvindo à Praia. This is also where I live. And, when you say that you will be here till April, I take it that you mean 2023? I'd certainly be open to meeting up for a coffee.

There are several schools and private individuals who teach Kriolu. I'd be happy to share names and contact numbers with you in a private message.

Cheers,

Angelo

Hello. That is exciting. Can you give me the University information? I would love to do the same? I'm in the US but will retire soon and desire to spend time on the island. I appreciate all the jnfkrm
@TLADY8TY you can take Portuguese lessons here:

Camões – Centro de Língua Portuguesa
Campus de Palmarejo - Universidade de Cabo Verde.

They have a Facebook page where you can find more information. Classes are helped at the Universidade de Cabo Verde campus.

You can contact the director, Mariana Faria, about enrolling in lessons at this email: [email protected]

They are charging about $4.5 an hour for Private lesson, which is what I am doing.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Best,
Felipe

So awesome! Thank you very much. @FelipeGeorge

Hello my name is Andy,
         Honestly I really don't know what the hell I'm doing? However of all nations, I've got my sights set on beautiful Cabo Verde!!
          I live in USA and want to leave. Not impressed here...The island life of Cabo Verde would suit me just fine!! So I think?
         So here I am reading you guys stories and taking them in with great enthusiasm.
Cabo Verde was the last place I looked at and, well hell the last became the first!!
       Cheers and I'll be following along.

Hi Okoisama,


The best way to get a job in Cape Verde is to walk around with your resume and speak directly to potential employers. Since you have experience painting houses, you should talk to construction companies or contractors.

Unfortunately, there are not many jobs available, there are hundreds of other job seekers, and if you cannot speak the language of the emoloyer, it will be quite challenging.

Best of luck,

Angelo

Hi Awotunji,

Welcome to the CV forum.

Getting a teaching job may not be feasible. Do you speak Portuguese fluently? If not, there is no way to get a teaching job as a public school teacher. In addition to the language, there are other criteria and constraints.

Please take the time to review the other topics on the forum. There have already been many discussions about the prospects for teaching in Cape Verde, as well as dozens of other threds regarding living and working in Cape Verde.

Regards,

Angelo
