Discover the official language of Brazil! In Brazil, the official and spoken language is Portuguese. The reason Portuguese is the predominant language in the country dates back to the period of colonization by the Portuguese in the 16th century. The linguistic history of Brazil is closely linked to the arrival of Portuguese colonizers led by Pedro Álvares Cabral in 1500. From that moment, the contact between the Portuguese and the indigenous populations, as well as the introduction of the colonial system, were crucial for the influence of the Portuguese language in the region.
