Olá, como vai? Hello, how are you?
Portuguese is a Romance language spoken on 4 continents and similar to Spanish. The official language of Brazil, Angola, Cape Verde, and of course Portugal, Portuguese is derived from the Latin alphabet but with very unique pronunciations. There are dozens of dialects as this language is also spoken in outlets such as Goa, India and Macau, China.
The Brazilian style of Portuguese incorporates the “sh” sound into many of its words. You might be asking yourself – why doesn’t Brazil speak Spanish like the rest of South America? During the colonial-era conquests of the new world, Portugal and Spain signed the Treaty of Tordesillas, which essentially granted the left-half of South America to Spain and the right-half to Portugal. Many famous politicians, entrepreneurs, and soccer (futebol) players hail from these countries (not counting the last World Cup).
