MIT BLOSSOMS in Brazil

July 29, 2011

We are pleased to report that Brazil's largest educational TV network, the highly respected Canal Futura, has partnered with BLOSSOMS. Canal Futura is regularly viewed by over 35 million Brazilians. Recognizing BLOSSOMS content as complimentary to the Brazilian High School Curriculum, Canal Futura has selected 37 BLOSSOMS lessons to translate into Portuguese—via subtitling—and to broadcast multiple times over its extensive network. This adds a fourth language to BLOSSOMS:  Portuguese, in addition to English, Arabic and Urdu.  In recognition of this significant new collaboration, we are adding the Brazilian flag to the new BLOSSOMS web site, indicating Brazil's country partnership with BLOSSOMS.
