'Han kommer fra Kina men taler kun portugisisk' must be correct, but it didn't accept it, I live in Denmark and they always say 'Jeg kommer fra...' not 'Jeg er fra...' it is not correct! Anyway how possibly a person from China can only speaks Portuguese!

Are 'bare' en 'kun' completely synonymous?

"Kun" is "only" in a restrictive sense: only these, and nothing else.

"bare" has a more positive sense: this thing, and also possibly something else.

"Han er fra Kina men taler kun portugisisk" should be accepted, but isn't

Would it also be possible to use the word snakker here?
