I have obtained the RSA/Cambridge CELTA and want to teach in Portugal. The problem is, most of the Portuguese jobs include an element of teaching to young learners or teenagers and I only want to teach adults. As I really want to go to Portugal, should I bite the bullet and teach young learners if required or should I keep looking for adult only teaching positions?

There are two considerations here. First, the quality of teaching you will deliver to your learners and, secondly your personal teaching and location preferences. If you do not want to teach young learners and do not have the appropriate preparation to do so, then I would strongly advise that you don't. It is true that in southern Europe most schools have substantial young learner programmes as this is the growing market sector. If it has to be Portugal, persevere until you find a post teaching adults only. Alternatively, consider countries where the adult market, e.g. Germany, is the major sector.
