Moving to São Paulo

As the capital of the state of São Paulo, the city of the same name is rich in cultural, historical and political value.  This sprawling mega-city, known locally as Sampa,is noisy, cosmopolitan and crowded – and it is hugeand a bit intimidating.  This is Brazil’s industrial and commercial centre and attracts immigrants from all over the world, making it an extremely ethnically diverse city.  It has the largest population of Japanese people outside of Japan.  With a huge distinction between rich and poor, the crowded favelas are not the place for expats to live, but there are some really up-market areas.

Most Sao Paulo residents have little command of English, although it is much better than the rest of Brazil.  However, in an upper-class district you can expect that most of the staff in the service industry to have a basic level of English.
