Duolingo has Portuguese in its program, but is built for [PT-BR], Brazilian Portuguese. I’m looking for quite a while to find an online language course in European Portuguese [PT-PT].

In general, people will understand Brazilian Portuguese in Portugal, but it seems a bit odd to learn a language version which is quite different in pronunciation and vocabulary. At the end it seems that in Portugal Brazilian Portuguese is understood, but not really appreciated, since it is not the native language.

Is there a Portuguese online language course for learning European Portuguese?

Not directly related to this question, but covering a similar issue: How to find correct pronunciations for Portugal-Portuguese words and phrases?

    Hi and welcome to Language Learning Stack Exchange. Since you tagged this question with duolingo, are you looking for a course hosted on that platform? If you are looking for a course hosted elsewhere, it would be better to remove that tag.

In addition, there are guides to learning European Portuguese that provide some other useful pointers:

I can teach you and prepare you for the exams, I built my online school to help people to speak our language with their family and friends. The courses are very detailed and the 1–1 sessions are tailored to your needs. https://www.letslearnportuguese.com/learn-portuguese-online/?swcfpc=1
