I think you can compare the relation between the english from America and from England, but much more different. Some words are still in the brazilian, but the majority of them has changed a lot.

The language is the same, but the accent and some words are differents. I’m brazilian and I can understand well PT-PT from some regions and other regions I can’t understand nothing at all.
Some words are false cognates and it’s funny in the most of time.
