I come from Brazil. We speak Portuguese, but here live people from around the world, like Chinese, Japanese, Europeans, Africans, and some native people, and others. It is a country situated in south America. Brazil is the greatest country of the south America, economically and geographically. We are mainly a Christian country. In fact, Brazil is home to the largest population of Christians in South America. However, there are different kinds of religion here, like cult of African religions, Muslim, and Jewish.
Internationally, we are pacific country, although, internally, there are irrational level of violence. We are a democratic country, but in the last three or four years we have faced tense political moments. Now, in my opinion, our democratic system is threatened by new president, that would be terrible for our political and social development.
There are a lot of biases about Brazilian culture, but in general we are seen like a peaceful country.
Like everyone else, I see the world through lens of my culture. We like soccer play, carnival and listen to music, like samba, “Bossa nova”, and MPB (Popular Brazilian Music – PBM). Besides, there are marvelous beaches throughout the country.
In Brazil, we like football, so Child usually play football very early, but there are some other forms of child's activity. In fact, we are a large country with a different cultural expression.
According to are legal system, it is incumbent upon both parents, regardless of their marital status, the full exercise of family power, which consists, as regards the children, to direct them to creation and education. But, in real world women have a great role in the child’s education, mainly in case of single mothers.
Here, education in all level is free to private initiative, meeting some conditions, like compliance with the general norms of national education, authorization and evaluation of quality by the Government. Our constitutional law says that Education, the right of all and the duty of the State and the family, shall be promoted and encouraged with the collaboration of society, aiming at the full development of the person, his preparation for the exercise of citizenship and his qualification for work.
But, unfortunately, we have a bad level of education, with some exceptions.
