Facts about Portuguese
- Portuguese is a language within Macau, a former Portuguese territory thatwas returned to China in 1999.
- Portuguese is from the Ibero-Romance language group that evolved from various dialects of Latin. Most Portuguese vocabulary is derived directly, or via other Romance languages, from Latin.
- There are over 250 million speakers of Portuguese in the world. It is the sixth most spoken language in the world and yet only 5% of Portuguese speakers live in Portugal.
- During the 15th and 16th centuries, explorers took Portuguese to several regions of Africa, Asia and the Americas. Hence why many people speak Portuguese in places as far away from Portugal as Macau or Angola.
- According to UNESCO, Portuguese is the fastest-growing European language after English. It has the highest potential for growth as an international language in the south of Africa and South America.
- Although Portuguese speakers are dispersed around the globe, Portuguese has only two dialects used for learning. These are the European and Brazilian standards. Modern Standard European Portuguese (português padrão/continental) is based on Portuguese used in the cities of Coimbra and Lisbon, in central Portugal. It is also preferred by the Portuguese-speaking African countries. Modern Standard Brazilian Portuguese (português neutro) is based on Portuguese used in Rio de Janeiro.
