Portuguese first came to Brazil in the 16th Century and has significantly diverged from European Portuguese in pronunciation, spelling, and grammar. Brazilian Portuguese also takes a lot of words from indigenous Brazilian languages such as Guarani, African languages such as Yoruba, and European languages such as Italian, German and English. As a Romance language, Portuguese has many similarities to Italian, French, Spanish etc. in terms of grammar, vocabulary and syntax.Learn Portuguese (Brazilian) with uTalk
