    and back when I worked in a community that was 40% Brazilian, and people should have known better. The Clinical director himself didn't know, and put out ads for outreach workers that said "Spanish speaking preferred" (facepalm)

    Although I've found that most who speak Portuguese can understand most Spanish...to me the languages sound completely different, I guess there are enough similarities there that they can.

    Then again, it could also be a product of living in a Spanish speaking continent. Most people from Montreal I've met can speak fluent English in addition to French.
