With approximately 220 million native speakers worldwide, Portuguese is a truly global language. Spoken in Portugal, it is also the sole official language of Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and São Tomé and Príncipe and has co-official status in Macau and East Timor, meaning speakers are widely distributed across several continents, including Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe. According to a UNESCO survey, Portuguese is, along with its Spanish cousin, the fastest growing European language and takes its place as the seventh most spoken language in the world after Bengali. It comprises several dialects and sub-dialects, and there are two recognised standards in the world, European Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese.
Brazilian Portuguese is quite different to that spoken in Europe, mostly due to phonetic differences, although they share a standardised spelling.
Portuguese is a Romance language like French and Italian but has many lexical differences which mean it is not mutually intelligible with these. It belongs specifically to the West-Iberian group of Romance languages like Spanish. This link allows it to be partially understandable to Spanish speakers. Like Spanish, it uses 26 letters of the Latin alphabet but includes more diacritics - 6 in total. These are necessary as Portuguese comprises a larger phonetic range than Spanish - something which can cause problems when Spanish & Portuguese speakers try to communicate.
