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.
