I know this question is probably asked a lot, but I was wondering can Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese understand each other? Or is the difference so big that they can't understand each other? I was just curious. What are the major differences between them?

Hi Meera,

I totally agree with Covered. The main difference concerns phonetics. Basically, Brazilians pronounce vocals clearer than Portuguese and the language melody (prosody) is different. There are also some grammatical differences and the vocabulary can be sometimes problematic (different words for the same thing or - even worse - same word with different meanings), however, they don't make communication impossible. At the beginning it may sound odd or even funny, but then you'll get used to it  Grin

The Portuguese seem to use 'sh' for 's', Brazilians pronounce 'r' as 'h' more often, and people from Rio use 'ce' for 'voce' quite frequently!

I recently watched a series called 3% on Netflix, where the speakers all seem to have a Rio accent. It has subtitles in lots of languages, so it's very useful.

They also have the film 'City of God', but be warned- it is very violent. This has just reminded me that they also have the follow-up film on Netflix, so I will be watching that today!

Netflix have quite a lot of films in languages other than English, so it could be worth a subscription.

Boa sorte, tudos.
