Brazil is one of a kind. Where else can you find such a wide variety of cultures, colours, flavours, and rhythms? And where else will you find such cool people? It seems that everyone loves Brazil and, once you arrive there, you’ll soon understand why!
More about language travel in Brazil
In the south of the country, cosmopolitan São Paulo and Rio are where the beautiful people hang out. Spend the afternoon strolling along neighbouring Copacabana and Ipanema beaches in Rio and you will see an outrageous array of tiny swimwear, buff dudes and perfect bods. São Paulo is a seriously cool fashion hub where the gorgeous ones are found in the bars, not on the beach. Tuck into prime Brazilian cuts of meat at the many Churrascarias that dot the cities, where waiters keep feeding you until you can take no more, and then check out the world-renowned nightlife. Dress up, get down and behold the Rio Carnival in all its glory. For Salvador, times the intensity by ten, add more African influences and beautiful beaches and you’re only a part of the way there!
But Brazil isn’t just about the wild and diverse cities, great beaches and great food. Head to the interior and explore untouched rainforests: the lungs of the world. Huge butterflies flutter among the super-diverse flora and fauna, monkeys swing among the ancient trees.
Brazilian culture is recognised the world over, whether the music of Elis Regina, Baden Powell, Gilberto Gil or Tom Jobim, the books of Paolo Coelho or the magic of Pelé. Learn Portuguese in Brazil with ESL and experience a land whose creativity ripples around the world. Return to introduction...
