A few facts about Portuguese

Portuguese is the official language of Portugal, Brazil, Angola, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Cape Verde, Macao, Mozambique, East Timor, São Tomé and Principe and is also one of the official languages of the European Union, the African Union, Mercosur/Mercosul, UNASUR, the OAS and the CPLP. Portuguese is also a recognised minority language in numerous American and African countries, and in some Asian countries as well.

In total, there are around 215 million native Portuguese speakers worldwide and another roughly 30 million people with Portuguese as their second language. Portuguese is considered a world language. The important role that foreign trade plays in the global market makes smooth communication in the Portuguese language a must.

Brazilian Portuguese is the variant of Portuguese that is spoken in Brazil, which has the largest population of Portuguese-speaking people by far. This means that although people who speak (European) Portuguese can often immediately recognise texts written in Brazilian Portuguese, the formulations these texts contain can sound slightly “foreign” to them.
