    You'll have no problem in Portugal as long as you speak English.

    But here's a nice video to get you started.

    Hope you feel very welcome in the country. The weather is still OK. Sure our language is hard as f*ck to learn for foreign people but your english will do well in the capital.

    Portuguese being hard?
    It's one of the easiest languages that I've ever studied. Sure I can't speak it well just yet but one can practically understand everything if you know some Spanish and I guess no-one can deny that Spanish is really easy peasy.

    Grammatically they are quite different. Portuguese grammar is one of the most complexes in Europe. MANY Portuguese can't master their own language.

    Exactly, Slavic languages are a grammatical hell for foreigners.
    Besides, one can communicate without knowing in-depth grammar rules.
    Vocabulary is probably crucial in understanding a language, as much as I hate memorising it.
    I would say all Slavic and most of Germanic languages are tougher than Portuguese, not to mention most of Asian languages that have other writing systems even though their grammar is usually fairly simple.

    For instance in a basic Japanese sentence meaning I AM POLISH one uses 3 different alphabets swapped 4 times?
    ???????????
    respectively: kanji, hiragana, katakana, kanji and hiragana.

    Sintra really is amazing, a fairy-tale of a city.

    This handsome guy from Recife sounds more like European Portuguese than the Brazilian one to my ears.
    I guess I'm just used to the Rio/Săo Paulo speech, never thought that some Brazilians also make these "sh" sounds as well...

    Rio makes the sh sound. carioca is my fav BR accent and easiest to understand. Kinda really dislike Paolistano, the way they roll the Rs is weird tbh.

    Idgaf how trashy this is, I'm obsessed. Love the verses, they're much stronger than the chorus tbh

    Pois sem ter teu carinho
    Eu me sinto sozinho
    Eu me afogo em solidăo
    ˇEh, mamá!
    Me quiero matar
    El mundo se va a la mierda
    Y no he hecho nada
