We have looked at Spanish and now it's time to go to learn about their next-door neighbours - Portugal.

Here we meet four-year-old Gaia and her mum Inés who is Portuguese. Who knew you could play Frozen in every single language?

Portuguese is not just spoken in Portugal. One of the world's largest countries, Brazil, has 200 million native speakers although their versions of the same language can change. These different versions of the same language are known as dialects.

Mothertongues is really about encouraging everyone to try new languages and they can come in handy. Cristiano Ronaldo has played for clubs in his native Portugal, England, Spain and Italy so, even global superstars could find the podcast useful!
