unfortunately, if you are looking to make Portugal
your new home, one of the hardest European languages to
learn, due to it's complicated pronunciation and complex
Portuguese is not spoken phonetically and to
put yourselves in good stead of becoming fluent it is
advisable to master the alphabet before moving on to the
tricky grammatical areas.
Portuguese alphabet is more or less the same as the
English one though the letters K, W and Y only appear in
foreign words adopted into the language such as karate,
yoga and western.
Portuguese though you will also have to contend
diacritical marks and diphthongs which will help you
pronounce words more easily. Taking a little time to
look at these and become familiar will in the longer
term aid your use of Portuguese.
