Portuguese language

Portuguese (português or, in full, língua portuguesa) is a West Romance language and the sole official language of Portugal, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Angola, and São Tomé and Príncipe. It also has co-official language status in East Timor, Equatorial Guinea and Macau in China. As the result of expansion during colonial times, a cultural presence of Portuguese and Portuguese creole speakers are also found in Goa, Daman and Diu in India; in Batticaloa on the east coast of Sri Lanka; in the Indonesian island of Flores; in the Malacca state of Malaysia; and the ABC islands in the Caribbean where Papiamento is spoken, while Cape Verdean Creole is the most widely spoken Portuguese-based Creole. A Portuguese-speaking person or nation may be referred to as "Lusophone" in both English and Portuguese.

A beautiful video created by Deivison Pedroza that reflects on how our lives are evolving. It makes us realize how we are shifting from a natural world and into a virtual world. He asks, which side are we on? Should we say "thank you" or should we stare at our digital devices and say nothing? Should we go skateboarding or surfing, or should we remain at our desks and in front of our monitors? Do we live our lives fully? He makes us reflect on how we live our lives and forces us to be aware of which side we want to be on. All in portuguese, but it is clearly pronounced so that if you are a beginner in the language or at an intermediate level you can understand it.
