I know very little about Portuguese, but it has always been a language that interested me alot . The question I have (sorry for asking it in English!) is, is there a large difference between the Portuguese spoken in Portugal and the Portuguese spoken in Brazil? I have heard that there is a quite a large difference, bigger than any of the English or Spanish language differences. Is it easy to understand a person from the opposite country in Portuguese? If so, what are some of the differences?
