Olá! – Hello!

Portuguese  is a Romance language. It is the official language of Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guiné-Bissau and São Tomé e Príncipe. Portuguese has co-official status  in Macau, and in East Timor in South East Asia. Portuguese speakers are also found in Goa in India.
