Brazilian Portuguese is the variation of Portuguese spoken in Brazil (by almost all the population, 200 million people). The differences between written European Portuguese and written Brazilian Portuguese are comparable to the ones found between British and American English, with several differences in spelling, lexicon, and grammar.
