By the way, Portuguese sounds very soft and has a musical sound. There are some nasal sounds, namely five vowels and five diphthongs, which are combinations of two vowels. The pronunciation of some consonants is also very different than in German. For example, an "l" is sometimes pronounced like a "u" or an "s" is sometimes pronounced like a "sch". Incidentally, the "ç" is pronounced like an unvoiced "s", for example in almoço (Having lunch).
