European Latin language spoken officially for about 200 millions people in eight countries worldwide, mainly in South America, Africa and Europe. It's also unofficially spoken in parts of India, Southern Asia and Africa.

Although Portuguese and Spanish are different languages, they have the same root in ancient Latin and therefore are mutually intelligible.
