The role of English and English instruction in Portugal is outlined. Although English is growing in importance, French is still more commonly studied as a second language in Portugal. English instruction within the education system, English teacher supply and training, the role of the British Council in teacher training, availability of English textbooks, English instruction outside the education system, and British and American support for English instruction are discussed. A project involving the contrastive analysis of English and Portuguese is noted. (RW)
