German students in Brazil at the Goethe-Institut increasing by 10% per year

From here in Portuguese:

The interest in learning German has been motivated by a number of factors, among them the requirements imposed by the labour market. Knowing a second language like English and Spanish in many cases is not enough, and young people are motivated to seek fluency in other languages.

According to the director of the Goethe-Institut, the demand for learning German is growing significantly. The institute recorded an increase of 10% in the number of students each year, an average that has been maintained for the past four years.

Interestingly, four years and a bit ago is about when Germany pulled itself out of the economic doldrums.
