Yeah, this is another one of those "Which language should I study?" posts. Here is some background. I am native in English and fluent in Spanish. I took three inconsistent years of French before I started learning Spanish at age 12. I took one year of Latin in high school and three semesters of German in college.

I am considering French and Portugese. The main reason I am considering French is that I already have a background in the language and that could prepare me for learning it again as an adult.

On the other hand, I have no prior experience learning Portugese. There are, however, far more native speakers of Portugese than French in my area, so I would have far more opportunities to practice with native speakers.

I'm just exploring the idea right now. I'm not on a deadline.
