    Hello João,
    I've just got an Echo Dot with the occasion of this Black Friday thing, but there are a few issues that I cannot get my head around.
    Like many others on this Earth, English is my first foreign language and, most importantly, my main tech language. But, since the guys at Amazon thought that Alexa's language settings should be tied to the shop's country... makes everything a pain in the ass.
    So how are you dealing with this? I know Portuguese is not one of the supported languages. Are you actually using your Echo on a daily basis? Or you just bought it for development? Did you set it up with an US account?
    Thanks!
    PS: Forgot to mention that my Alexa should be speaking to me in a 3rd language that I am still learning.

    Hey João,
    There is nothing to fix here!
    So I guess you made an US account, with generated data and that's it! Right?

    But it is a .com account, right? Or something else?
