From here in Portuguese:
On Wednesday Porto Alegre will open its first Confucius Institute. It will be located on the Vale campus of the UFRGS (Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul) and is a partnership between the university and the Communication University of China (CUC).
The institute will have classrooms and short-duration courses. The professor and writer Jane Tutikian will be the Brazilian director of the site - a Chinese director must be appointed by July. Two more Chinese teachers will be selected to give lessons to the Brazilians.
There are around 300 Confucius Institutes around the world, with only four in Brazil.
