Portuguese Language Page

Portuguese language in the world.

Portuguese is spoken by an estimated 240,000,000 people, in the countries of Brazil, Portugal, Mozambique, Angola, São Tomé and Principe, Cape Verde, Macao, and East Timor. That makes it the 6th most spoken language in the world. It is a Romance language meaning that it is derived from Latin. Galician and Fala are the most related languages to it but Spanish is also well known to be similar.

Portuguese is also a Category I language, making it easy for English speakers to learn. More on the Portuguese language will be introduced in the Introductory Course.


As of now, there are two Portuguese courses available. Both are under construction and any help would be very useful.

  • Brazilian Portuguese for those wanting to learn the Português do Brasil. Feel free to jump right in. Lessons are organized and packed with activities and quizzes to constantly keep your brain working.

Additionally you can find course books on our sister site Study Guides.org .There are three different books for learning portuguese. Again these are at various stages of completion:
