Languages of Macau: The Macanese flag flying in the wind on a sunny day

A tiny island, special administrative region and former Portuguese colony, Macau is probably one of those places you think of. Yet the languages of Macau are arguably more interesting than any other country in Asia – including China and Japan!

Though it only has a population of roughly 650,000, the languages of Macau are a strange mix of European languages – a remnant of a time when Macau was a colony – and various Asian languages, including several dialects of Chinese.
