What's a lan house?

One of the phrases is "a lan house", which I've never heard of. I've heard of LAN parties (a bunch of people bring computers, connect them together, and do things); is a LAN house a place where one holds LAN parties? -phma 22:35, 4 Oct 2005 (EDT)

Found out on Brazil. It's like an Internet café. -phma 15:45, 7 Jan 2006 (EST)
A LAN house is primarily geared toward gamers who need broadband connections and usually has a dark environment (blackened windows etc) supposed to enhance the video effects of games, whereas an internet café is brighter and usually has a good printer, recordable CDs and other useful items for non-gamers. -- Ricardo (Rmx) 22:42, 26 January 2007 (EST)


I think this page has gotten far too long to be reasonable for a travellers' phrasebook. I think the point of a phrasebook is to give a traveller just enough tools to survive their travel experience.

I don't think an extended comparison of Portuguese to Spanish serves that goal; neither do listings of US states or world nations in Portuguese. I think an exception to this last rule would be covering the major English-speaking nations (UK, USA, Canada, Australia, NZ) so people can say "I am from ____".

I've clipped out the Spanish comparison and VFD'd the geographical lists. --Evan 10:56, 28 Nov 2005 (EST)

  • The Spanish comparison is now in Wikipedia, including the there out-of-place Boa viagem. Anyone who wants to claim that your text is CCASA and not GFDL, please go there. -phma 16:41, 7 Jan 2006 (EST)

Pronunciation mistakes

There are some obvious mistakes in the pronunciation section. I've corrected a few, but there are others (e.g.: the j sound is exactly as in French, i think the description is confusing and misleading). I think i can't use an account from neither "en.wikipedia" nor "pt.wikipedia", so I made anonoymous edits... Yuu_En/Yuu 15jan2006

  • Thanks! You can make an account here just as you can in Wikipedia. -phma 08:37, 22 Feb 2006 (EST)

External links section

I removed the following external links section in following the recent trend. Texugo 23:20, 24 January 2008 (EST)


In the numbers section, I have added that 'meia' for six is only used in Brazil. In Portugal this would probably not be understood. I've made an anonymous edit to avoid having to create an account for a small edit. I hope that is okay. AMC
