Adverts

The Portuguese language is spoken by more than 230 million people, being the fifth most spoken language in the world and there are so many words that exist that many times we are not aware of some, because this is a frequent doubt of many people, we decided to make a selection with several difficult words and their meanings that is, for you who want to deepen your knowledge, stand out among the competitors for a job vacancy or to deepen your vocabulary to appear cultured in some situations such as family gatherings.

Difficult words and their meanings

If you want to deepen your vocabulary, making your way of speaking more chic and cultured, the first thing you should do is look for the meaning of the words, because if you speak a word that you don't know the meaning of, instead of sounding smart, you will be a reason for “joke” on the part of people who understand them and may even offend someone unintentionally.

For you to have an idea of the dimension that the Portuguese language has in the world, it is the third most used language on Facebook. Timor-Leste, Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Mozambique, Portugal and São Tomé and Príncipe also have Portuguese as their official language.

Faced with so much wealth that the Portuguese language provides us, it is common to see people in our daily lives who do not master their speech and writing, many prefer to delve into other languages, such as English and Spanish and end up forgetting to learn correctly the mother tongue. However, what impresses me is that even with so much linguistic neglect there is a large increase in the number of google searches for difficult words, I swear I don't know the reason for sure but one thing I'm sure learning is never too much!
