It's a quite, because they are very similar (and many other's latin based languages) but some words have a completely different meaning, like "embarazada", that is similar to portuguese "embarašada". Embarazada means pregnant, while embarašada means "in a bad situation" (but we know that if you're a teenager the words means the same :P).
