    Yes. Portuguese is spoken by all brazilians, and it's the sole official language of that country.

    Apart from Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, Guinea Bissau, São Tomé and Principe, Cape Verde and Guinea Equatorial in Africa and Macao and East Timor in Asia, also have portuguese as their official language

    They share that trait due to Portugal (the origin of the language), which colonied them all in different times, during the Portuguese Colonial Empire that lasted from 1415 to 1999/2002.

    Most Brazilians speak Portuguese- probably because Portugal colonized Brazil a long time ago. Portuguese is also very similar to Spanish.

    Source(s): I take Spanish classes... if that helps lol

    No, it can be not! The principal language spoken in Brazil is the Portuguese. In reality, part of the Brazil used to be of the Spanish in the colozination, however the natives of the Spanish phase not ever spoken Spanish. All Brazil speaks Portuguese. The others languages are spoken by immigrants of each and every country in the world (however they converse Portuguese, for definite), tourists and Indian's dialects (tupi and so forth.). Adequate? Stick with God...
