Why Learn Portuguese?


Where is Portuguese Spoken?

The Portuguese Language

Portuguese is the official language of 9 countries around the world including Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and São Tomé and Príncipe. It is the native language of over 240 million people around the world and is the sixth most commonly spoken language on earth.

Portuguese is a romance language and can find its bases in Latin which was brought over by the Romans during the 2nd century B.C. It was then mixed with Germanic influence during the 3rd to 7th century B.C. It was not until the 12th century BC when the modern language of Portuguese took form. It was then taken across the globe by Portuguese explorers and taken to South America and Africa.

Currently Portuguese is once again gaining prevalence on the world stage primarily due to the rise of Brazil as an economic power, which is currently the most populous Portuguese speaking country.

New Years Resolution – Learn A Language

I personally stopped making New Year's resolutions many years ago. Depending on the year, I either tried and failed to give up caffeine, exercise three days a week, learn a new word everyday or get up early each day to meditate and pray. As we face the end of 2014, I have been toying around with the idea of making a New Year's Resolution once again. Rather than deprivin...
