Brazil vs Portugal when it comes to work and be fluent in portuguese?

Im new in here and dont really know if this question allready exist.

Well, I have a dual citizenship one in Sweden and one in Brazil. I know that I have right to work in Brazil but my problem is that I only speak basic portuguese and wonder how hard is it to find a work in Rio de Janeiro at a hotel or anything like that. I speak good english and fluent in Swedish. Or should I forget brazil and go for Portugal. My goal with the 6-12 month trip is to be fluent in portuguese.

Portuguese in Brazil is softer and easier to learn. We stress the vowels and they rather the consonants. Brazil with opening of new businesses due to WC can be a good field for you.
