how about european portuguese?
It was very disappointing for me that I can only study brazilian version of portuguese language. I like the idea of Duolingo a lot, however it would be much better if there were two versions so we could choose one. Is there any chance that happens? Greetings
nah nigs, i think y'all are missing the point that brazilian portuguese is the most culturally dominant and influential version of the language globally. Much of the lusophone world is influenced by the brazilian culture and media. But yeah i think some skills focusing on contintental version and more than just 1 lesson in tu/voce is called for.
I personally do not see much difference between the Brazilian and the European portuguese but half of my family is European portuguese and whilst trying to speak to them to show off what I have learnt so far they tell me that I sound Brazilian for some reason. Haha. Most of the vocabulary is the same or am I wrong? I understand that it is mostly just the pronunciation? Correct me if I am wrong.
Either way, it would be really great if we could choose between the two.
I was initially learning EP but have now decided to learn BP as well. The following website is great for EP (http://www.learn-portuguese-with-rafa.com/learn-european-portuguese.html) and for differences between the two languages see (http://www.sonia-portuguese.com/text/brazport.htm). There are also two separate wikipedia articles on EP and BP which are quite good for understanding the differences. I'm not too worried about pronunciation so I mainly use Duolingo for vocab and grammar, and try to note where the EP grammar would be different.
