A little about the Portuguese language.

Portuguese is widely spoken around the world. Over 200 million people speak Portuguese as their native language. It is the official language of Brazil, the most populous South American country, several African and Asian countries (Angola, Cape Verde, East Timor, Guinea Bissau, Macao S.A.R. of China, Mozambique, São Tomé and Príncipe), and of course Portugal. The Brazilian version of the Portuguese language is known around the world because of a great number of TV soap operas and other entertainment programs produced in that country.

Portuguese is a Romance language. Spanish, Italian, and French also belong to this group. Portuguese is usually considered to be very close to Spanish, especially in grammar and vocabulary. For example, if you can read Spanish, you should be able to understand general idea of a typical Portuguese text without any additional preparation. This is not surprising since Spain and Portugal are close neighbors both located on the Iberian Peninsula. Phonetically, however, Portuguese seems to be closer to French than to Spanish.

The words and phrases that you will find here have been carefully selected to help you expand your Portuguese (Brazil) vocabulary with maximum efficiency.
