If you're at the beginning of a professional career, if you're acquiring English as your second working language, and if you're interested in how Brazil is seen by outsiders, this is an interesting article to read:

My questions:

1. Did you learn anything important about Brazil from reading this article (that you hadn't realized before, of course)?
2. Do you think the article in any way creates a false impression of Brazil?
3. In the context of working in English, did this article stimulate any ideas about your career?
