About Brazilian Portuguese
Brazilian Portuguese is a dialect of the Portuguese language that is spoken by the 184 million inhabitants of Brazil. Although the Brazilian people take pride in their national language and often regard is a separate language from Portuguese, in reality, there are only subtle differences between the Portuguese that is spoken in Portugal and Brazil. The best comparison that can be made is between the differences between American and British English. However, if one wishes to learn how to speak Portuguese in Brazil, there are differences that can be taught and learned. There are several differences in Brazilian Portuguese vocabulary, grammar, word order, syntax, pronunciation, and expressions. Perhaps the most effective means of learning these differences is to work with a Brazilian Portuguese tutor.
About Continental Portuguese
The Portuguese language is one of the oldest languages in Europe. It was developed about 2,000 years ago and is directly descended from Latin. It is one of the Romance languages and is closely associated with Spanish, French, Italian, and Romanian. Because the language was first developed in the Spanish region of Galicia, it closely resembles Spanish, and speakers of both languages have a basic mutual intelligence. When the Portuguese began to explore and colonize the world, the language began to spread worldwide as well. Today, Portuguese is widely spoken in Brazil as well as several of the ex-Portuguese colonies of Angola, Cape Verde, East Timor, and Macau among others. Although Portuguese doesn’t have the international profile of other languages like English and French, it is the 6th most widely spoken language in the world, with over 177 million native speakers.
