THE BEGINNING ;-)
hi guys. i am about to start learning Portuguese... i have no idea how it is going to be like!!!! but i have heard it is not much different from Spanish and sine i know a little Spanish i hope to be able to learn it easily!!!!!! if you have any tips or anything please let me know... thanks:-)
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!
do you know a good online dictionary i could use?? for Spanish i use "spanishdic" but for portuguese i don't know what to use!!!
Listen carefully to native pronunciation. Also practice it at least... um ano(1 year).
