        Brazilians no more speak Portugese than we Murkans speak English! :twisted:

          Even better trivia question could be, what is the second. The answer might be quite surprising.
          For soccer fans, try to put together a Portuguese speaking all-time team. It would kick ass.

            Do your students know that their TOE doesn't think he's speaking English to them?

                My students already accuse me of making up words, so they know it can't be English. I could probably speak in tongues and be just as effective as I am now. :roll:

                    A surprise is that it is actually Mozambique.

                      So what city outside of Japan has the largest population of Japanese speakers?

                        Oh yeah, and here's the actual quiz answer

                        12. Brazil, with a population of 190 million. Portugal has only 10.6 million.

                          I bet there were lots in San Francisco until 1942.

                            According to Wiki, it's Angola. Mozambique has a larger population, but has a lower percentage of Portuguese speakers.
