Since you're coming here why not develop your skills on this language commonly called "Língua de Camões" - language of Camões. For the ones who don't know about him, don't worry, by the time your Erasmus ends all his books and stories will be in the tip of your tongue. If you don't like to wait here's what the reliable Wikipedia has to say:
"Luís Vaz de Camões (Portuguese pronunciation: [luˈiʒ ˈvaʒ dɨ kaˈmõjʃ]; sometimes rendered in English as Camoens or Camoëns (e.g. byByron in English Bards and Scotch Reviewers), / /; c. 1524 or 1525 – 20 June [O.S. 10 June] 1580), is consideredPortugal's and the Portuguese language's greatest poet. His mastery of verse has been compared to that of Shakespeare, Vondel,Homer, Virgil and Dante. He wrote a considerable amount of lyrical poetry and drama but is best remembered for his epic work Os Lusíadas (The Lusiads). His collection of poetry The Parnasum of Luís de Camões was lost in his lifetime. The influence of his masterpiece "Os Lusíadas" is so profound that Portuguese is called the "language of Camões"."
