I have lived in portugal for 15 years I'm 75 years old and would love to take on Portuguese nationality but my portuguese language is limited and I'm not sure I would pass the test. I'm a disabled ex serviceman so also cannot travel long distance and I understand the test must take place only at recognised testing facilities. Is there any way round these problems. HELP!!
