Great for people with ADHD like me.

You can carry them around in your pocket. Put the ones you answer in a different pile so they don't get in the way of the ones you don't know.

My father was American Consul General for 5 years in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. All my friends were Brazilians, I was in a Brazilian Boy scouts, I had one hour of Portuguese every day at school. I was born in Buenos Aires Argentina and then we moved to Panama and then to Naples, Italy.

I must say the Portuguese is really messing with my Spanish. I am more interested in the Spanish since I am spending a lot of time in Costa Rica and plan to spend a lot more since I just retired.
For two years now I have popped down to Brazil to visit childhood friends and when coming back to Costa Rica I had a difficult time remembering which language to use. Many words are so close. "Muito" or "Mucho"? "Tudo bem" or "Todo bien"? Oi vay!
