Brazilian Portuguese vs. European Portuguese

Brazilian Portuguese vs. European Portuguese

May 15, 2019

Did you know Brazilian Portuguese is very different from European Portuguese? One of the major differences is the accent, but there are also many differences in grammar and vocabulary.

Today I'm going to have a chat with my friend Nuno Cramês. Nuno is Portuguese, so today you’ll have the opportunity to hear and perceive the difference between the Brazilian accent and the Portuguese accent. We are going to talk about the differences between Brazilian Portuguese and Portuguese from Portugal, and we’ll also talk about some differences in vocabulary, and about Nuno's experience living in Brazil.
