From here in Spanish:
Brazil is in vogue for the World Cup, Olympics and for being an emerging economy. The EOI (Escuela Oficial de Idiomas) has noticed this change, seeing a 22.9% increase in the demand for Portuguese. This makes it the fourth fastest growing language.
The other languages with the largest increase in the number of students are Russian (52%), German (30%) and Chinese (27%). The EOI is preparing a trip to China this summer to establish contacts in the country.
