What did I learn this spring semester, well I did not know much about Brazil other than I knew that politics were all over the place and corruption was a wide spread activity. But what I really learned was that the Brazilian people are strong, culturally diverse group of people. That even though their is corruption in the Government there were people who are fighting for the the stop to corruption. How the police Brutality in Brazil is extreme, and how the government has deployed troops to fight a gang that is not even in that city. The last thing was the book report taught me about the dictatorship in Brazil during the mid 60s-mid 80s, and coming into the class i knew absolutely nothing about this military take over. I did not even know that the military took control of the Country. I would recommend this class to anyone because of how well it was taught and the interesting topics that we covered.
