Portuguese Language Profile
Moderate, unless you live in big Brazil or in Portugal. Here in Portugal people normally talk another language, be it French (old educated people) or English (everyone under 35 speaks it), or understands Spanish more or less. Ah, young people normally do not only not speak French, they also hate it…almost everyone had French at school as second foreign language.
The basic is that Brazilian and European Portuguese are very different to the ear. Saying which one is the most beautiful is a bad idea, but each “accent” has its fans. Brazilian is clearer and has less particular sounds.
This depends on where you live. In western Europe, most of the Portuguese you will hear outside Portugal will be from low-skilled immigrants. Speaking their language will surely make you popular among them and some people will probably find speaking to your femme de ménage in Portuguese the ultimate of chic. Personally, I find the nasal pronunciation of European Portuguese especially fascinating, as it almost totally veils the similarity of the language with Spanish and makes it sound like a south Slavic language.
About 160 million, mainly in Brazil and Portugal.
Portugal, Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, S. Tomé and Príncipe, East Timor.
Apart from the differences between Portugal and Brazil, which is the main one, African accent is recognizable, although it is close to the European one; in Portugal, people of the different regions speak with slight variations, you will at least recognize the accents of Porto and Alentejo.
The main motivation for me to learn portuguese would be a travel to Brazil. Being able to dwelve into the immensity of that country and discover its people with the added advantage of being able to talk to all the portuguese migrants in Europe would be a sufficient reason to learn.
Brazilian music and a few great writer.
