The Girl from Ipanema - S1-E2

Corrected entry: Maria is from Brazil, as is stated various times throughout the episode, but has a Spanish accent. (Brazilians speak Portuguese, not Spanish. In the commentary for the DVD, the fact that the accent is Spanish is mentioned several times. No mention is made of the incongruity of the accent with Maria's country of origin, suggesting that this is an oversight rather than intentional).


Correction: Almost all the countries surrounding Brazil speak Spanish. It's well within the realm of possibilities that either Maria or her family speak Spanish so having an accent isn't necessarily a mistake. It depends on what her native language is, and the fact that is from Brazil doesn't negate the possibility that she could have a Spanish accent. Canada is officially bilingual; English and French, but parts of the country there are more people speaking Russian, German, Italian and many other languages than either of the official languages. As a result, you can hear a lot of different accents here as well.
