      Eu só não percebo quando falas que o teu português nunca vai ser perfeito 🤔 Nada é perfeito, mas o teu português com sotaque carioca é "perfeito". Eu estou muito habituado a ouvir português do Brasil e não consegui perceber diferenças, é totalmente nativo :)

    I'm from Argentina so my mother lenguage is Spanish and my family is a mixture from all over the world but mainly Brazil and USA, i also live in the border with Brazil so Portugues and English are natural to me but because i live in a place where most of the population are inmigrants, somehow i find myself understanding a little bit of French and German, and Italian a bit more than those. Lenguages are so amazing and interesting! I always felt more confident with English but i'm definitely going to push myself and learn more of the lenguages that i'm sorrounded with!

    Well you lerned brazilian portuguese, not the portuguese from portugal, witch is fine BUT in 2021 I can say that they are completely diferent languages. We, portuguese, can understand brazilian portuguese easy because of the big comunity of people of brazil that come to portugal to start over or to get a better life in the european union. and because we consume A LOT of soup opheras and music from there country! But the other way arround is tricky, portugal is smaller and is a more laid back. A friend of mine went to brazil some years ago and the locals always told him to speak slowly and calmly because is accent was to stiff for them to undertand. So if you want a challeng and a half, talk to a portuguese guy, from porto or even from Mirandela (Mirandela shoud be fun) and we will see if you pass the test ahahah Love your channel! Love to my brazilian brothers :)

HE looks like the actor in there who falls in love with a doctor once he (spoiler) get's to the island. And he's working both sides (last I saw it?)

    I am not impressed, Nathan has an advantage over a monolingual who's never been exposed to any other language other than his mother tongue assuming this video is meant for Anglophones. On the other hand, Nathan already speaks French, Italian, and Spanish 3 romance languages, learning a 4th romance language is not going to be that hard. If you notice who did most of the talking? Jo. He can understand her and infer some of the things she says because of the language skills he already has but he's not fluid in his speech he's struggling. I seriously doubt an anglophone or any other monolingual that speaks a language that far apart from a romance language would be able to understand half of what Jo said let alone speak it in 7 days fluently. it's a setup to sell his language learning method.
