From here in Portuguese:
Three quarters of middle and senior management in Portugal speak English, with Spanish as the second most spoken language. According to figures from the Michael Pagce Group (a recruitment firm for management positions), 75% of skilled Portuguese professionals speak English. The same data shows, however, that only 42% of these professionals have a high level of skill in the language and only 3% are fully bilingual.
Spanish is the second language most spoken, being spoken by 28% of the candidates. Of those professionals that know Spanish, only 12% have a high or bilingual level. After Spanish comes French with 18%, and German with 4%.
