Portugal is the seat of empire of the sea, a nation of navigators that established colonies all around the world and spread a language still spoken in places as vastly different as Brazil and India. Nearly 250 million people speak Portuguese worldwide, but there’s no better place to learn Portuguese than Portugal, especially if you are interested in learning a traditional and formal way of speaking, or want to apply to a job in international relations or a job using Portuguese in Europe.

Depending on the program, Portugal can also be more affordable to study in than Brazil. Much more than beautiful beaches and bacalhau, there is plenty to discover in Portugal.
