Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world geographically with a predominantly tropical, a vast South American country, climate stretches from the Amazon Basin in the north to vineyards and massive Iguaçu Falls in the south. Rio de Janeiro, symbolized by its 38m Christ the Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado, is famed for its busy Copacabana and Ipanema beaches as well as its enormous, raucous Carnival festival, featuring parade floats, flamboyant costumes and samba music and dance It is the only Portuguese speaking country in the Americas and the largest Portuguese-speaking country in the world, in addition to being one of the most multicultural and ethnically diverse nations on the planet.
Brazil is a major exporter of many of the world’s most sought after commodities which has, for example, seen its trade flows with the emerging super-economy that is China explode over the past decade or so. Couple this fact with the enormous surge in commodity prices over the same period and it’s an easy assumption to make that Brazil is in a very good place at the moment..Brazil has the world's ninth largest economy by nominal GDP, and the seventh largest by purchasing power parity. The Brazilian economy is characterized by moderately free markets and an inward-oriented economy

Higher education in Brazil is offered by universities, university centers, colleges, higher education institutes and technological education centers. Citizens can choose from three types of courses: baccalaureate, graduation and technological education. The post-graduate courses are divided between lato sensu (Specializations and MBAs) and strictu sensu(Masters and doctorates).
In addition to in person education, in which students must attend at least 75% of lessons and assessments, however distance learning (EAD) is also available. In this mode, students receive books, handouts and obtain help through Internet. Classroom attendance is not required. Semi-presential courses are also available, with classroom lessons and also distance learning.
Sprawling across half of South America, Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world. White-sand beaches, tropical islands, music-filled metropolises and charming colonial towns are dotting its 7,500 km (4,600 mi) long coastline. Inland, Brazil tourist attractions consist of imposing waterfalls, wetlands filled with wildlife, and the untouched wilderness of the Amazon rainforest where several isolated tribes still live without any contact with the rest of the world.
Due to the varying heights above sea level of the Brazil landscape as well as the proximity to the coast, the climate (and, therefore, vegetation and animal life) varies somewhat from region to region. The climate of Brazil varies considerably mostly from tropical north (the equator traverses the mouth of the Amazon) to temperate zonessouth of the Tropic of Capricorn (23°26' S latitude). Temperatures below the equator are high, averaging above 25 °C (77 °F), but not reaching the summer extremes of up to 40 °C (104 °F) in the temperate zones. There is little seasonal variation near the equator, although at times it can get cool enough to need to wear a jacket, especially in the rain. Average temperatures below the Capricorn Tguspic are mild, ranging from 13 °C (55 °F) to 22 °C (72 °F).
Brazil is in the Southern Hemisphere, so December through March is the hottest time and June through September is cooler. Even in the cooler months, though, many parts of the country will have temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. You'll mostly need hot-weather items like shorts and tank tops, but will also want a pair of long pants and a jacket during cooler months.
