    Why Learn Portuguese?

    Portuguese is spoken by more than 200 Million people, it's official language in Brazil, Portugal, Angola, Cape Verde, East Timor, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Sao Tome und Principe and Macau. It is the 6th most spoken language in the world. 1.3 million americans are native speakers of Portuguese.

    Brazil covers one half of the area of South America; is the 2nd industrial power of the Americas and is the 8th economy of the world.

    To learn Portuguese is very important if you want to get to known the portuguese culture, speak to people around the world and create a closer link to locals who don't speak English. If You plan to travel to one of the many countries, where they speak portuguese – it really facilitates communication.

    Once you speak portuguese, you have much more job oportunities, you can get interesting jobs in the administration, import & export, health sector, travel sector or as a translator/interpretor.

    Portuguese is also official language in the European Union and MERCOSUR, the economic alliance between different countries of Latinamerica including Brazil. As portuguese is spoken in so many places, you will have many occasions to use the language.

    While learning portuguese, you make the first step in learning other latin languages (Spanish, French, Italian, Romanian) which are very similar. Portuguese is a very romantic language, especially if you learn the pronunciation used in Brazil (also called Brazilian Portuguese).

    If you already speak Spanish (or Italian) it makes it really easier for you to learn Portguese because these languages have so much in common. Most Portuguese even understand you if you speak spanish with them.
