Learn a new language every month of the year! December is all about Portuguese.

Portuguese is the sole official language of Portugal and Brazil, and other Portuguese colonial and formerly colonial territories like Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Angola, and São Tomé and Príncipe.

There are over 200 million native Portuguese speakers, yet, only about 10 million of them live in Portugal - the language’s country of origin. It is also the most spoken language in South America, though there are some differences between Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese, including several sound changes.

The language had only 23 letters until 2009, after which the letters k, y, and w - which did not exist in Portuguese writing - were added due to an influx of English loanwords.

Did you know: The word anticonstitucionalíssimamente, which means “in a very unconstitutional way" is the longest non-technical word in the Portuguese language, with 29 letters in total.
