The percentage of Brazilians who speak English varies, by region. And within each region, the percentage varies by whether the population is located in bigger cities, smaller towns, or out in the countryside. For example, people are more likely to know English, and to know the language better, in cities such as Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. For those two cities in particular have more of an international interaction with English speaking populations, and indeed with just about any other language in the world. English is a required subject in high schools. But many people in Brasil don't have the opportunity to put the language into practice in their daily lives. And so one suggestion is a percentage of at most 1% of the total population.
