iLearn4Free is currently in the process of developing our M4Read app in Portuguese with education experts from Brazil. Phonologically different from the Portuguese spoken in Portugal, Brazilian Portuguese is the official language of Brazil, with a population of almost 200 million. Its development was mainly influenced by the Amerindian and African languages. Portuguese is virtually the only language used in Brazil.
