New York, NY, November 27, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Portuguese is the sixth-most widely spoken language in the world, spoken by over 200 million people, well ahead of German, French, and Italian. Brazil is the 5th-largest country in the world with the 8th-largest economy. With more than 180 million people, Brazil has a mass consumer market. The US is Brazil's largest trading partner.
Because few Americans speak Portuguese, proficiency in the language is a highly marketable business skill.

"I have been studying Portuguese at Brazil Ahead for over a year. Even though I am an advanced student and speak Portuguese fluently, I found it amazing that I learn a lot from classes with Cris. She is very organized, very professional and she has an uncanny ability to pick up and discuss nuances and relevant details. In my profession I deal with foreign languages and leading linguists every day. Cris is the best teacher of Portuguese I have met. When we studied writing in Portuguese I also noted that Cris is an extremely thorough and competent editor and points out errors that others would, probably, either not notice or not bother to correct. Brazil ahead is strongly recommended." Vladimir Kolesnikov - Interpreter, United Nations.
