Would you make a fair comment about Brazilian Portuguese & Spanish (European + Latin American)? In Europe, Spanish is absolutely in a stronger position than Portuguese. In USA, the most popular foreign language is latin-american Spanish, especially Mexican style, because there're a lot of Mexico immigrants in USA. & In latin-america, people speak latin-american Spanish, it mainly includes Mexican, Argentine, Chilian style, & In Brazil, people speak Brazilian Portuguese, which sounds softer & more nasal than Spanish, & it shows some similarities to that of French. Brazil's been working to develop its economy and resolve societal problems, Brazil is the largest and most populous country in South America, the fifth largest country by geographical area, & its population comprises the majority of the world's Portuguese speakers. Brazil is the largest national economy in Latin America, the world's tenth largest economy at market exchange rates & the ninth largest in purchasing power parity. If you had to choose between Brazilian Portuguese & Spanish, which would you prefer to learn?

Well, as an American it's highly prefered to learn Spanish. If you live anywhere in southern or southwestern US, there will be many many people who speak Spanish as their first language and often still as their primary language though they live in the US. In these areas, it's very common to be in contact with Spanish speaking natives every day, where as Brazillians usually come to the US on educational charters or for their professional lives and are more able to adapt to an English speaking environment. However, many Spanish speaking natives who immigrate to the US have very poor English skills, so knowing a little Spanish can go a long way.
