Portuguese is a Romance language derived from the Latin spoken in the Iberian Peninsula. It spread worldwide in the 15th and 16th centuries as Portugal established a colonial and commercial empire which spanned from Brazil to Goa and other parts of India and Macau in China. During that time, many creole languages based on Portuguese also appeared around the world, especially in Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean. Today it is one of the world's major languages, ranked 6th according to number of native speakers (between 177 and 191 million). It is the language of Brazil, and also a major lingua franca in Portugal's former colonial possessions in Africa. It is an official language in nine countries and an official language of several international organizations.
