Fun facts about the Portuguese language

The most-spoken native language in the Southern Hemisphere, Portuguese is part of the Iberian Romance languages—the branch of Romance languages that developed on the Iberian Peninsula and includes Spanish, Catalan, and Galician. It's the official language of seven nations—including Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, and Angola—and the co-official language in Macau, located on the southern border of China; Equatorial Guinea, in South America; and East Timor, in South East Asia.

Portuguese grammar, words and origins

Due to the fact that it's such a widely used language, there are many dialects. The two main dialects are Standard—spoken in Portugal and former colonies around the world-and Brazilian Portuguese. Where they're generally similar, there are a couple of fundamental differences that warrant mentioning, specifically in syntax: Standard Portuguese places the object pronoun after the verb, whereas Brazilian Portuguese places object pronouns before the verb. Differences in vocabulary can also cause a Portuguese learner to stumble. Brazilian Portuguese has a lot of borrowed words from Italian, English, even Japanese. That said, English has borrowed a few words from Brazilian Portuguese, like cobra, piranha, and flamingo.

The Portuguese language and business

With Brazil as the first-place holder of the so-called "BRICs" languages, it stands to reason that learning Portuguese would benefit anyone looking to do business with one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, along with Russia (R), India (I) and China (C).
