Ninety-eight percent of Brazil speaks Portuguese. More than 5 million Brazilians communicate using Libras - Brazilian Sign Language. About 274 indigenous languages are spoken by 305 indigenous ethnicities.
In the south of Brazil, about 3 million speakers communicate in a dialect derived from the Hunsrückisch dialect of West Central Germany. About four percent of the population living by the borders speaks Spanish. Talian is a dialect of the Venetian language also spoken in Rio Grande do Sul, southern Brazilian region.
If you count Spanish-speaking immigrants, Spaniards, Bolivians, Argentinians and Venezuelans, give and take, you can get an amount of 460.000 Spanish speakers.
You still have the communities of Japanese, and some French spoken between French Guiana and the Amapá border. Chinese immigrants must also speak the language within their families. And a small percentage can speak English: five percent.
