Fantastic video! It's just pity he didn't mention Romanian with details, as he did to Occitan and Catalan! But he's right. Portuguese speakers understand Spanish very good, but the other way round doesn't!

You might be interested in what's known as "intercomprehension", check for example the book "EuroRomCom: The Seven Sieves", a guide to learning to (passively) understand all Romance languages by analyzing their similarities and differences. Another similar book is EuRom5, which covers Portuguese, French, Spanish, Catalan, and Italian.
