    • My wife is from Brazil so I learned Portuguese, but since I’m not a native speaker it’s harder for me to do this, but for her it’s really easy... Portuguese is basically fucking speaking cursive Spanish. Easy to learn, hard to speak

    • As a native Portuguese speaker I can say that Spanish makes sense if they are talking at a reasonable speed (which they normally don’t) and Italian I can make out words but full sentences are alien.

    • We Italians can hardly understand each other(if someone is from the other side of the country, forget about it). We literally use hand gestures for everything because for some reason, those vary very little across the country. But, yeah, sometimes I hear Spanish and I can get the general idea lol...

    • Idk, they sound almost similar but the some words and the accent can confuse each of the speakers. Explain Torta in Spanish is a type of sandwich while in Italian it means cake and I believe in Portuguese it means pie. Sooo, yeah sort of similar but not entirely

    • Spanish and Portugese are not the same. Italian is even more removed. If you want examples of languages separation that is bullshit look at Urdu and Hindi or Serbian and Croatian. One language considered two for political reasons.
