Why learn Portuguese?

Approximately 208 million natives speak Portuguese, which makes Portuguese one of the most spoken languages in the world. The Portuguese language is present as an official language on several continents. In Europe, it is spoken in Portugal while in South America it is present in Brazil. In Asia, it is spoken in Macao and East Timor. On the continent of Africa, there are more Portuguese speaking countries such as Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Sao Tome and Principe and Equatorial Guinea.

There are many reasons to learn Portuguese. Learning how to speak Portuguese makes it easier to learn other Romance languages like Spanish, Italian or French since they are languages that derive from Latin, have similar vocabulary and share grammatical rules.

Speaking Portuguese contributes to deepening the knowledge of Latin culture by promoting a deeper understanding of its culture and history. You can read books in the native language of the Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho, the author of one of the best-selling books in the world "The Alchemist" or José Saramago who was awarded a Nobel Prize in Literature.
