included "European Portuguese" in the deck title, to make it easier to find; it's easy to miss with the original title, and a deck with quality European Portuguese audio I find particularly valuable
added an article ("o" or "a") to a few nouns where it was missing; essential for learning the gender e.g. mão -> a mão
removed the article from some words that are actually only adjectives e.g. a engraçada -> engraçada
removed a few duplicates e.g. a conta, a fralda, o preço, caminhar
updated spellings, in line with the Acordo Ortográfico de 1990, which removed many silent "c"s e.g. directa -> direta
changed the order, so that you learn vocabulary before longer phrases (that sometimes include that vocabulary)
some food items only had photos; I added text descriptions
Esta é o meu esposo. -> Este é o meu esposo.
Este é a minha esposa. -> Esta é a minha esposa.
a comida | food -> a comida | the food, the meal [to distinguish from: o alimento | the food, the nourishment]
I feel like going to a movies. --> I feel like going to the movies.
relógio | watch -> relógio | the clock, the watch
o filme | film (camera) -> film (movie)
Há Vaga | Rooms Available -> Vacancies [for easier comprehension, and consistency with: Não Há Vaga | No Vacancies ]
combined the duplicate "o café" in to a single note: o café | the coffee, the café [otherwise when presented with "o café" you don't know which English response to give]
o caixa automático > a caixa automática
Onde é que há um caixa automático? -> Onde é que há um caixa automática?
the cabinet > the cabinet (e.g. customer services, government)
tempo | time -> o tempo | time, weather
O meu número é quarenta. -> O meu número é o quarenta.
homosexual | homosexual (n) (a) -> homossexual | homosexual (n) (a)
limpo | clean (v) (m) -> limpo | clean (m) [I find it easier to just take "limpo" as an adjective here, although it can also be a form of the verb "limpar".]
o bonito | beautiful (m) -> o bonito | pretty (m)
o bonita | beautiful (f) -> o bonita | pretty (f)
"Onde é a esquadra da policía?" -> "Onde é a esquadra da polícia?" [this accent correction results in a duplicate note, so one of the notes was then deleted]
os medicamentos | medicine –> os medicamentos | the medicines, the drugs
jóias –> joias
I’d like a newspaper in English –> I’d like to buy a newspaper in English
para a Australia –> para a Austrália
I have a asthma. –> I have asthma.
... and probably other changes too, that I didn't note
If the providers of the original list happen to notice this, and wish to centralise the changes by updating their deck with this one, they're very welcome to do so; I could then remove this one. Huge thanks to them for sharing in the first place, and to the Anki creator, and crucially, for providing the functionality to be able to share decks – for free!

At this time, it is not possible to add shared decks directly to
AnkiWeb account - they need to be added from the desktop then
I could download the other two recommended decks, but not this one. It's unfortunate because I feel this deck would be great based on the other two. I'm giving it a thumbs up because there's no reason to be a jerk, but this deck doesn't work.
My favorite deck for Portuguese so far, thanks for creating it!
Thanks for sharing!
Very variated stuff
Outstanding deck. Exceptional audio. Starts with appropriate vocabulary. Muito obrigado!
Quality content, I really appreciate the effort put in the recordings 👍
Thanks so much for doing this updated version! I came straight to this one because I searched for 'European' Portuguese.
How do I add images to the flash cards? Do I need to change a template or something?
Nice European audio
It comes with portuguese pronunciations. I have been looking for something like this for a very long time. Thanks for the good work!
