New York, NY, December 06, 2007 --( 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. While US financial markets worried that its popular President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva would allow liberal domestic spending programs to regress its slowly expanding economy, the opposite has happened where fiscal conservatism and planning led to early payments of debts and increased credit ratings for the country.

With more than 180 million people, Brazil has a mass consumer market and the US is Brazil's largest trading partner. Because few Americans speak Portuguese and because American companies opening offices in Brazil continue to multiply, proficiency in the language is a highly marketable business skill.

Brazil Station ( provides Portuguese translation, interpretation, and corporate language education throughout the tri-state region. Since 2003, the company has served dozens of companies and helped over 600 professionals improve working relationships, discover new opportunities and reach foreign markets.

Based on market demand, additional classes will be added to the company’s repertoire to expand Corporate Language Education.
