Portuguese is a Romance language that was spread worldwide in the 15th and 16th centuries as Portugal established a colonial empire that included Brazil in South America, Goa and other parts of India, Macau in China, Timor in South-East Asia and five African countries (Cape Verde, Guiné-Bissau, São Tomé e Príncipe, Angola and Mozambique).

With over 260 million speakers, Portuguese is the fifth most spoken language in the world, the most widely spoken in the Southern hemisphere, and the third most spoken in the Western world. In addition to Brazil and Portugal, it is used in Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Macau, Mozambique, São Tome and Principe, East Timor and Equatorial Guinea, as well as in the former territories of Portuguese India and in small communities that were part of the Portuguese Empire. It has official status in the European Union (EU), the African Union, the Organization of American States (OAS), and the Latin Union.

Portuguese is the official language of 9 countries and is the language of about half of South America's population. Portuguese and Spanish are the fastest-growing European languages after English, and according to estimates by UNESCO, the Portuguese language has the highest potential for growth as an international language in Southern Africa and South America. The Portuguese-speaking African countries are expected to have a combined population of 83 million by 2050. In total, the Portuguese-speaking countries will have 335 million people by the same year.
