LEARN PORTUGUESE

Speaking the world's 6th most-spoken language

Learning Portuguese The beautiful Romance language of Portuguese is spoken by some 220 million people worldwide (the sixth most spoken language) and is the official language of 8 independent countries on four continents (Portugal, Brazil, Angola and Mozambique have the biggest number of speakers). It belongs to a group of languages called "Romance" or "Neo-Latin" that evolved from Latin, the language of Latium in Ancient Italy, or more specifically, the city of Rome.

GoLisbon has put together a number of useful resources below to help you learn Portuguese. We offer both online learning tools and the chance to study Portuguese in Portugal itself, either in the capital Lisbon, or close to the beaches of the Algarve in Portimão and Faro. For those wishing to learn Brazilian Portuguese, we can recommend schools in Rio de Janeiro, Salvador de Bahia or Maceio. Or perhaps our English visitors wish to stay closer to home, in which case they should look no further than the Portuguese language schools in the UK.
