Benefits of the Portuguese course

Portuguese (Português) is a Romance language, spread worldwide in the 15th and 16th centuries as Portugal created the first and the longest lived modern-world colonial and commercial empire (1415-1975). Portuguese, ranked fifth among world languages in number of native speakers, is also widely spoken or studied as a second language in many other countries. Portuguese is estimated to have 232 million native speakers and about 258 million speakers in total.


The “Comunidade dos Países de Língua Portuguesa” (“Community of Portuguese Language Countries”), an organization of countries where Portuguese is widely spoken, has nine member countries: Brazil, Portugal, Angola, Cape Verde, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique and São Tomé and Príncipe. .


Because of historic ties, Portuguese is also widely spoken in Sri Lanka, Goa, India and Macau, China. So you might find yourself needing your Portuguese skills in Europe, South America, Africa or even Asia! In addition, Portuguese is also an official language of the European Union, Mercosul and the African Union. The Portuguese language is gaining popularity in Africa, Asia, and South America as a second language for study
