How similar are Spanish and Portuguese? If I study one, how long will it take to learn the other? I'm thinking of studying Spanish or Portuguese.  I know they're both Romance languages, and that they are both pretty similar.  Are the differences as wide as Spanish and Italian?  Or are they more similar?  And how long will it take for me to learn the other if I start with one?
