Portuguese is spoken by around 230 million people, mostly in eight countries, called Lusophones: Portugal, Angola, Brazil, Bissau Guinea, Mozambique, São Tomé e Principe and Timor.

Furthermore, Portuguese is the most spoken language in South America and the second in Latin America, thanks to Brazil and its huge size and population.
