    Tchau is most definitely used in Portugal to say goodbye. Even my 70 year old aunts and uncles just south of Lisbon use it to say goodbye. The proper word is "Adeus" but tchau is most definitely common in Portugal. Tchau is NOT used for hello in Portugal. Hello is not used in Portugal. You can say "ola" or use phrases for good morning, good afternoon, etc as a greeting.

    Hello is correct. Hi Spammypammy, I've checked and Hello/Ola (with accent) is correct. As far as I can find out Tchau is the Brazilian Portuguese word for Bye, but I don't think this is used in Portugal. Thanks anyway. Mike :0)
