Brazil Summer Olympics

September 11, 2015

 

Will you be heading to Brazil next summer?

 

This event is not only an important date in the calendar, but also one in the #economic, #political and #cultural calendars too- let’s not forget that Rio (second largest city in Brazil after #São Paulo) is London’s successor, hosting the summer #Olympics in #2016.

 

While the iconic #sporting #events have catapulted #Brazil to #international prominence, up until now the country was not only renowned for its footballers and supermodels but for its #Carnival.The Carnival of Brazil is held just before Lent and is the most famous holiday in Brazil. It attracts millions of spectators and participants each year, including tourists.

 

With the growing #Brazilian economy, learning #Portuguese is more popular now than ever before. This romantic language is not just the official language of #Portugal and #Brazil, but also several #African and #South American countries including #Mozambique, #Uruguay and #Cape Verde. A strong history of colonisation means that the language is also prominent in certain parts of#China, #India and #Malaysia. #Portuguese is in fact the sixth most spoken #language in the world! If you can’t afford a plane ticket to #Brazil this summer or anytime in the near future, learning Portuguese is always a way to capture the spirit of #Rio.
