BRIC Language Systems Congratulates the Winner of the BRIC Language World Cup Bracket With Free Lessons

Leading Online Language Training and Translation Services Company, BRIC Language Systems, Gave Away 12 Hours of Free Brazilian Portuguese Classes to the Winner of the BRIC Language World Cup Bracket

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jul 16, 2014) - The FIFA World Cup was filled with excitement, surprises, heartbreak, disappointment, and patriotism. Germany's dominant display of skill and teamwork will forever be enshrined in sports history, as will the anguish felt by many Brazil fans after its embarrassing exit. Germany was not the only winner however, as always BRIC Language Systems found a creative way to make language learning fun. This time through it World Cup Course and the sponsorship of a World Cup pool. The winner of the pool was awarded a free 12-hour package of their choice of either Brazilian Portuguese or Mandarin Chinese language training.

BRIC Language Systems put together a World Cup Bracket to motivate enthusiasts to follow and participate in the FIFA World Cup frenzy. Now that the matches have come to an end, and Germany has taken home the hardware, BRIC Language Systems would like to announce that the winner of the bracket is the Wilson Clan. The Wilson Clan was able to deftly pick all but one match correctly. A feat that is considered almost impossible in any pool, but this one in particular with all of the surprising upsets. As the clear winner, the Wilson Clan chose to pursue Brazilian Portuguese, and relive the excitement of the games through BRIC's World Cup Course.

Because the World Cup Course was a huge hit, BRIC has extended the availability of the program. Fans that took the course and travelled with BRIC to Brazil for the games said that speaking the language not only made them feel more secure, but also added to the experience. Jim McGregor, a BRIC language learner said, "being able to communicate with Brazilian fans really allowed me to understand Brazilian futebol culture in a way that my friends could not!"

Although Brazil had a disappointing performance in its last two games, the host country was victorious on another level. With the exposure and success of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Brazil has created a wave of interest. People who initially were only fans of the game, are now interested in the country and its culture as a whole. Purchases of Brazilian Portuguese language courses saw a spike as a result, and that is expected to continue. According to Mr. McGregor "my friends and I will be back to Rio de Janeiro, and they will be signing up for the Brazilian Portuguese course before we go." This year's FIFA World Cup has made many people interested in this South American power, and that interest will continue to expand as we approach the 2016 Summer Olympics.

This was a very exciting and surprising tournament and BRIC Language Systems would like to thank every participant in the BRIC Language World Cup Bracket. To the winners, the Wilson Clan, BRIC Shanghai employee, Mike Lee says, "Enjoy your Brazilian Portuguese lessons!" Look for more exciting language learning options from BRIC in the future, don't be surprised to see an Olympic Games Brazilian Portuguese course soon.
