Brazil is the largest country in South America. It is slightly smaller in area than the United States and borders all but two South American countries. The language spoken in Brazil is Portuguese, not Spanish as in most of the other South American countries. The landscape of Brazil is varied and includes not only the Amazon rainforest, but also grasslands, high plateaus, mountains, and coastal plains. The climate of Brazil is tropical in the north and temperate in the south.

Well know cities of Brazil include the capital, Brasilia, Sao Paulo, and of course Rio de Janeiro.
