Learn the world language Portuguese
Portuguese is unlike other languages, as its appeal extends beyond it’s country of origin. Amazingly, only 5% of all Portuguese speakers live in Portugal making it a truly worldwide language. For example, if you are thinking of travelling to Africa, you can make your life easier with the locals by learning a few words and phrases in Portuguese beforehand. Actually, you can make that more than a few as there are over 1 million speakers in Mozambique alone. If you think that is impressive, 20% of the Angolan population speak fluent Portuguese. There are many other parts of the world that have their own version of Portuguese.
The first that comes to mind is Brazil, but you will also find such in North-Western Spain where Gacilian is spoken. If you are thinking of moving to Portugal or any country where this language is spoken, knowing a few words comes in handy. If you familiarise yourself with the language first, it'll make interacting with potential clients, coworkers and neighbours much easier. Portuguese businesses are always on the lookout for new talent, and it is ranked fourth as the safest country in the world. Learning a language on your own can seem like a challenge, however with the Babbel app, language learning is fun, easy and effective.
