Naturally, several words are very similar in Spanish and Portuguese, although it is always wise to pay attention to the pronunciation in Portuguese. Here are some of these “true friends”:
English: So, where are you now?
Spanish: Entonces, ¿dónde estás ahora?
Portuguese: Então, onde é que você está agora?
Don’t be fooled! The word hoy in Spanish looks like and means the same as Portuguese hoje (“today”). However, hoy sounds like Brazilian Portuguese oi, which is a common greeting (hola in Spanish).
