This last one is the biggest home of native Portuguese speakers in the world; over 209 million people live in Brazil, and the majority of them use Portuguese as their mother tongue. With fluency in Portuguese language, you’ll be more than ready to do the “samba” and enjoy one of the world-famous celebrations in the World: Rio Carnival.You may not know until reading it but an important fact about the portuguese language, it’s fastest-growing European language in the world behind English.Yes!
