At first the Portuguese language can seem difficult to understand, since as one of the Romance languages derived from Latin, one expects it to sound similar to Spanish or Italian. Instead, its closed vowels and shushing consonants sound closer to an Eastern European language. But knowledge of Spanish, Italian, or French does help when it comes to the written language.
