Portuguese is the national language of both Portugal and Brazil. In the former it is spoken by the entire population of 10 million people, including those in the Azores and on the island of Madeira. In Brazil it is spoken by virtually everyone save the country’s few hundred thousand Indians. As Brazil’s population continues to soar, so does the number of speakers of Portuguese. The figure for Brazil in the year 2000 was approximately 165 million, up from only 100 million 25 years earlier.

Portuguese is also spoken in countries and territories that were once colonies of Portugal. It is the official language of five countries in Africa: Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde, and São Tomé and Príncipe. It is also spoken by small communities in Goa (western India), in East Timor (in Indonesia), and in Macao, which is now part of China.
