EXPLORE THE BRAZILIAN PORTUGUESE LANGUAGE


Do people in Brazil only speak Portuguese? While Brazilian Portuguese is spoken by nearly everyone in the country, a large number of Brazilians are able to speak more than one language. Roughly 82% of the population speaks English and about 11% can speak Spanish. Brazil, once a Portuguese colony in the 16th century, declared its independence from Portugal in 1822. Following that, their own unique dialect of Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, emerged. Other Portuguese colonies that have more recently sought independence speak a closer version of the continental Portuguese dialect. Who knows what future dialects of Portuguese are soon to emerge? When Brazil won its independence, they adopted a different writing system from that used in Portugal. However, in the late 20th century, the two countries agreed to use the same writing system (signing the Orthographic Agreement of 1990) with the goal of organizing and unifying the language.
