    Today Brazil is viewed as very much the greater Portuguese speaking power, in the sense the USA is the English speaking power over the UK. Many companies are now using a Brazilian flag over a Portuguese flag to indicate they speak Portuguese or have Portuguese language material.

    Baring this in mind, do you think its best to study European or Brazilian Portuguese? Many people think studying American English over British English is better for business and opportunity, but equally British English is considered very much the more "correct" forum, and from a scholarly point of view, British English wins every time.

    Is it a similar thing with BP/EP in which EP is considered to be the more "correct" forum. However, I have also heard the BP is a more "archaic" form of the Portuguese language, and it is actually EP which has gone under the most change and deviated the most from the original language.
