Bom dia! Contemplating studying abroad in Latin America's largest country? With a rich cultural history, booming economy and growing international presence, an experience living and studying in Brazil would be "muito legal!" (very cool!).
Brazilians are also unique because they speak Portuguese and not Spanish...but even if you don't speak Portuguese, don't let this turn you off! Brazilians are some of the warmest, most helpful people in the world, and whether or not you speak the local language, they will do whatever they can to help you.
Although Brazilian universities tend not to place within the top 100 universities world-wide, there is great movement in the country to get more students and more resources into their universities. This would be a great time to be part of change in Brazilian history!

Brazil also has numerous cities in which students can study and have a great time. Whether you prefer the wilds of the city or the wilds of the, well, wild, you will be sure to find a great place to call home while studying abroad.
Samba classes are a great way to become familiar with traditional Brazilian music, and an even better way to stay fit while you're there! The Amazon, which is found mostly in Brazil (but also spreads into Bolivia, Peru, and other Latin American countries), is home to the richest source of animal and plant species in any tropical rainforest in the world. This is not an opportunity to be missed! The beautiful Brazilian coastline runs the whole western edge of the country, so be sure to pack your beach towel.
Though Brazil is a country steeped in history and culture, it is quickly expanding and modernizing! This is an extremely exciting time to be studying in Brazil and benefiting from the best of both the traditional and contemporary worlds co-existing in modern Brazil. Parabems (congratulations) on contemplating studying in Brazil - it will be an experience you'll never forget!
