So, what do you do ? I graduated in Software Development, but I work for a oil company. I used to work off shore ... It's my first week working on land ...
Would you like to keep a conversation in portuguese ? I can help you ...
Noticed you say to be interested to learn the Portuguese language and some observations should be observed:
Every language has features you can find it difficult and I do not. And vice versa. But learning any language reasonably takes on average about 5 years, is "easier" and "more difficult". Has some simple and others more complex. Has the most and least similar to the language.
In an English class, a student will quickly save a lot of irregular verbs in the past but will find very difficult to pronounce the "th" while another will say the man, and combine all of this because you can not remember neither the verb to be.
Forget 2 +2 = 4, language has nothing to exact. Most of the questions that is on the learning of languages can only be answered with "depends".
