Why Learn the Portuguese Language?

Portuguese is not only spoken in Portugal, but in Brazil and in several African countries, including Mozambique and Angola.

It is also one of the ten languages identified as the most important for the future of the United Kingdom by the British Council's report on languages for the future.

Portuguese is pronounced differently in Brazil and Portugal. Just as there are differences between American English and British English, there are differences between Brazilian Portuguese and Portuguese Portuguese.

Some words are different and could sometimes cause confusion!

Beginners of the Portuguese Language

Learning Portuguese, whether to become bilingual or to be a Portuguese speaker in order to just converse, will take time.

Why not take a trip to Sao Paulo Brazil to prepare? Or register your child in a language school in Lisbon.

If you have been fascinated by the Portuguese language and culture for a while, a trip to Portugal Brazil is a good place to start. 

Portuguese is also one of the Romance languages in the same way as French, Spanish or Italian, so it is close to French and Spanish grammar.

You may, therefore, find it is easier to learn Portuguese rather than learn German or Chinese for example.
