Countries that speak Portuguese

Portuguese is the fifth most spoken language in the world, and the third in the western world, behind English and Spanish.

Today, an estimated 250 million people speak Portuguese and Brazil accounts for about 80% of all native speakers.

Beyond Brazil, Portuguese is the official language of Portugal, Guinea-Bissau, Angola, Cape Verde, Mozambique, East Timor, São Tomé and Príncipe, and Equatorial Guinea. Given the scope and importance of the language, Portuguese is a mandatory school subject in MERCOSUL countries.
