Why learn Portuguese?

Learn Portuguese Online

Portuguese is a Latin language that originated in what is now Galicia (a region in northern Spain) and northern Portugal. It is one of the world's major languages, ranked seventh according to the number of native speakers.

Portuguese is spoken by 11 million people in Portugal and more than 240 million people around the world. It is the language of about half of South America's population, even though Brazil is the only Portuguese-speaking nation in the Americas. There are two main dialects: that of Brazil and that of the 'old world'. On busuu.com, we teach Brazilian Portuguese, which is obviously also understood in Portugal.

  • Portuguese is one of the world's main languages - it is the seventh most important language, spoken by half of the population of South America and one of the fastest growing European languages.
  • Brazil is an emerging country - it covers one half of the area of South America, is the second industrial power of the Americas and is the eighth largest economy in the world.
  • Portuguese is the official language of several new African Republics; the sister language and culture to Spain and France; and the language of Samba and Caipirinha.
  • Portuguese is relatively easy for English speakers, and even easier for people who speak Spanish or French.
