Good luck! I know Spanish as well, and to be honest I still confuse both very often. I can read both languages perfectly but it is difficult for me changing to Portuguese.

I'm in the same boat, native Spanish speaker. It's a blessing and curse - you learn very quickly and comprehend well because of the similarities, but then it's the little things that trip you up. Like how every time someone says year in Portuguese, it sounds like something else to my Spanish ears :)

haha yes so funny, last year I was on holidays in Portugal and a very friendly employee said to us when we left in half Spanish/Portuguese: hasta o proximo ano!

http://www.wordreference.com/pten/ I use it for English-Portuguese, and I love it. But there is also a Spanish-Portuguese version, if that's what you need!

    Listen carefully to native pronunciation. Also practice it at least... um ano(1 year).
