This tutorial is for Brazilian Portuguese, so if you can speak Portuguese from Portugal, you may notice many differences, but don't worry! We can all understand each other. The only difference is the accent and some words that will be listed soon. It's like the difference between English spoken in England and English spoken in the USA
