Welcome to the Portuguese program at Case Western Reserve University

Portuguese is among the 10 most spoken languages in the world. Besides Portugal, it is also the official language in countries around the globe: Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Guinea-Bissau, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Macau, Cape Verde, and São Tomé and Príncipe.

A fun fact that many aren’t aware of is that Portuguese is the most spoken language in South America.

Students taking Portuguese at CWRU can choose whether to focus on Brazilian or European Portuguese.
