Portuguese, as its name suggests, originated in Portugal, but is also the official langauge of Brazil, Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Cape-Verde, Mozambique, and São Tomé and Príncipe.
With 215 million native and 250 second language speakers, Brazil is the sixth most spoken native language in the world and the most spoken language in South America.
Portuguese is the second fastest growing European language after English. As a required subject in South American countries and an increased interest in China due to trade with Brazil, Portuguese is set to remain a truly global language in the future .
