Hey fellows!

Yesterday I was on Youtube and I found a compatriot of mine, this nice Brazilian polyglot! He has videos in so many languages!
I can't really judge all of them, but his Russian and Spanish are very good.

Here are some videos:

Russian
Spanish
Indonesian
Ukrainian (after 2 weeks)
Bulgarian (also after 2 weeks)
Catalan
Japanese
Romanian
Hindi
Portuguese backwards

I'm not sure if he's a member here, I hope so!

His Russian are amazing.
He speaks with mistakes, but it sounds very good for a foreigner.

Very good Spanish. A few mistakes but great flow and confidence in the language, which is to be expected since Portuguese and Spanish are sister languages.

One thing I don't understand is why he is using the vosotros as a South American and since he lived in Venezuela for four years of his childhood. Maybe he stopped speaking it once he returned to Brazil and then had to "restudy" it, choosing the Spanish from Spain? I would have expected him to speak more latin american Spanish, that's all.

Castillian Spanish is taught in Brazil, not Latin American Spanish.
As for the situation in Venezuela, Portuguese is not routinely taught, but Instituto Camões (from Portugal) is trying to change it, benefiting from in-numerous Portuguese immigrants in Venezuela, so it's easier to find a Continental Portuguese course than a Brazilian one in Venezuela.

I think "culebrilla" was talking about Spanish in Venezuela ("ustedes" instead of "vosotros") not Portuguese.

That's definitely not a rule. In my school, we had 2 native Spanish teachers, a Chilean and later on a Peruvian. First, we started being taught Castillian Spanish, then they started hiring natives who taught us Latin American Spanish. At first it was a little confusing for me, especially regarding personal pronouns.
Some friends of mine who studied in other schools also had Latin American teachers.
