Brazil is one of the world's most rapidly growing economies and is governed by one of the most popular politicians of today
Brazil is worth everything that's going on with it at present. It is governed by Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, one of the most popular, powerful and influential politicians on the planet, and it is rapidly growing its power as one of the Latin American and of the world's leaders.
As the fifth biggest country in the world and as a developing country with close to 200 million habitants, Brazil represents a powerful nation with more independence from the United States of America, and is now leading different movements to promote the unification of the South American countries as a region, for which Lula da Silva created the Union of South American Nations (USAN).
Also, Brazil is part of the South-South Cooperation alliance group, which is as well integrated by two other southern growing economies: South Africa and India. Furthermore, Brazil is a member of the BRIC group, which is integrated by Russia, India and China as well, four countries that are thought by a lot of experts to be the future dominant economies of the planet.
Brazil's industry isn't the only thing that's growing fast and expanding throughout the world. Lula da Silva has worked hard to put his country at the top of every world event to come, in order to increase its image as a growing power and as a developed modern country. These are two examples of that: the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro will host the 2016 Summer Olympic Games and will make Brazil become the first South American country to have that honor (it was chosen over Madrid, Spain; Chicago, United States; and Tokyo, Japan); in second place, Brazil will host the 2014 FIFA World Cup, which means this South American giant will be the main actor of the next biggest and most important sports events.
That will not only represent a big step for the Brazilian economy, but will also be an enormous jump into the list of the world's most attractive countries to visit for tourism as well as for business and for event locations.
This is an opportunity to feel motivated about learning Portuguese, a language that shares its Latin roots with others languages such as Spanish, French and Italian, which makes it easier to learn by those who speak one or more of these other languages. Those who learn Portuguese will have many study and business doors open in a country that, as we can see, promises to be one of the world's economic and political leaders in the near future.
Brazil is much more than the famous but old image of the Samba traditions; it not only has beautiful beaches, big and modern metropolis, gorgeous women and the biggest part of the Amazonian jungle, but also a powerful economy that will surely play an essential role in the future of our planet.
