That's according to a link here (and another one here), referencing the Cervantes Institute which says that the number of students learning Spanish in Brazil has increased from 1 million in 2006 to 5 million in 2009. This is a different number from another article I referenced last year that said the number was around 11 million. Today's article also says that the final goal for the government is to have 41 million students learning the language whereas the one I referenced last year had links saying either 41 million or 50 million. The report from the Cervantes
Institute that comes out
next Wednesday tomorrow will also have information on Spanish teaching in Russia and the Sub-Sahara region, so be sure to take a look at it then. Last month Russia Today began broadcasting in Spanish too.
