This is really just a test to see whether you can spell Portuguese correctly in English.

So I'm not the only one who can't always get the word right. I don't know why but I always fail to include the last e, maybe because it's just "português" in Portuguese.

And please, it's not a bad written Spanish! :) And we Brazilians speak Portuguese, not Spanish ^^

Haha, there is some people that end up really shocked when they discover we don't speak Spanish in Brazil

Would this sentence be correct without "het"? i.e. since we can say "Willem is een man" can we say "Portugees is een taal"?

As a native Dutch speaker I would say it's more natural to say "Portugees is een taal".
