I've been thinking about it. What should I put on them?
Maybe that frustrated guy saying "Portuguese does not sound like Russian!" would work? :-)
Portuguese and Polish sounds pretty similar at a distance, I think - lots of hushing sounds and nasals.
Are you talking about European Portuguese or Brazillian Portuguese?I speak Brazillian Portuguese and I don't think it sounds anything like Russian but European Portuguese is pretty weird.
no,no,no, Brazilian Portuguese is really weird
This also applies to my very terrible Italian... If in doubt, speak Spanish with a bad Italian accent and hope for the best. Mamma mia!
Do you learn Italian because of opera? I am starting to think ones who love opera start learning it at some stage..."Povera donna! Sola, abandonata in questo popoloso deserte che apellano Parigi!"
I find that Portugese sounds more like Spanish with a French accent personally
A girl I know just went back from Barselona and said same thing about Catalan :-)))
For me Catalan sounds like French with a Spanish accent!
Now that's interesting. Where are you from?
Well, for me (a Russian) the Portugese language sounds a lot like Polish. There's the same lot of "sh", "zh", "ts" and other odd consonants that make it sound like a snake's hissing (no offence meant). All in all, this "mixture of Polish and Spanish" sound really, really weird.
Even the portugal portuguese doesn't sound similar to russian
