Portougesh

I'm not sure I'd ever be able to learn Portuguese.

The vocabulary is close to Spanish and a bit further removed from French – the two foreign languages I know, though to differing degrees – so I can work some things out when I read them.  But the sounds are very difficult.

I asked the hotel reception where a particular establishment was and was told "Shta-ou-ra-dor-esh." Could you spell that please? Restauradores.

I give up.
