Brazil: Conversation Etiquette

When you travel to Brazil:

  • Expect a lot of noise in restaurants and other public places. Conversations get quite loud and the Brazilians use many gestures while talking.
  • You don’t have to raise your voice but if you feel compelled, don’t worry about it.
  • Maintain good eye contact.
  • Good topics are futebol (national obsession), positive subjects, intellectual subjects like travel, art, music, books.
  • Bad topics are anything to do with Argentina and/or politics
