Back in the 1990’s, I lived in Brazil and learnt Brazilian Portuguese. From December 2015 – March 2017, I lived in Portugal and would like to share my experiences with those two variations of the same language.
Was it easy to get along in Portugal speaking Brazilian Portuguese? Short answer: Everyone understood me but the problems started when Portuguese people answered back. In the beginning, I was really frustrated. When Brazilians speak, I understand almost everything and that was not the case at all in Portugal.
