If someone shows you the back of their hand, with the fingers pointing up, and closes the thumb against the fingers repeatedly, this means "full!". It might be used when approaching an Estacionamento (car park) to warn you there are no spaces, or by a Brazilian friend if the night club you want to enter is packed. Fast
Another, which is a little difficult to describe, involves rapidly twisting the hand away from your body, with two of the fingers clicking together (even harder to do for the uniniated!). Not quite the normal clicking your fingers, but produces a similar sound as the two fingers slap together. This is to signify "fast!", so might be used in reference to a person's driving, or the speed at which calendar events occur. Disinterest
A more obvious gesture used quite frequently symbolises disinterest, or lack of knowledge on a topic. The person will hit the back of their fingers against the fingers on the other hand, and repeat with the other hand, further repeated again several times. Victory
One gesture that means something different in Brazil from other countries is the "two finger salute" or "V-sign". Where you face the back of the hand towards someone, and extend the index and middle finger. A Brazilian may well think you're congratulating them on their driving, as here in Brazil this is a V for victory, meaning the same with the hand in the reversed position of palm out. A "single finger salute" with just the middle finger has the same connotation though as the USA and UK and no doubt other countries, so be careful with this one. OK or Not
Another gesture that has a different meaning here is the OK sign, where you take the thumb and index finger to form an O. I won't give the exact details of what it means, but it's essentially the same as the V-sign in the USA or UK, hence offensive! “Corna” which historically means “your wife is cheating on you.” It is popular in Brazil and is often used when disagreeing with a football referee. Body Language Extra Slide Size compared to people! Impolite in Brazil *When conversing, good eye contact is important. To not do so is considered impolite. Handshake A good, warm handshake is the traditional greeting in Brazil. However, the Brazilians show affection easily.
People in Brazil will also shake hands when arriving and departing. There may also be a touching of the forearm or elbow, and often a pat on the back. To add emphasis to a statement, a Brazilian may snap the fingers while whipping the hand down own and out. To express appreciation, a Brazilian may appear to pinch his earlobe between thumb and forefinger. For example, if you’ve enjoyed a meal this gesture may be used. Among Brazilians, to dramatize it even further, they will reach behind the head and grasp the opposite earlobe.


There are many common friendly gestures in Brazil. One is the thumbs up gesture, which is also popular in America. In Brazil it is meant to mean “good” or “positive.”




Sometimes nonverbal communication can be very different than what is expected in other countries. One example is the “O.K.” symbol one can make with their hands. It is regarded as just meaning “O.K.” in the American culture. In Brazil however, this is seen as a very obscene gesture. It is equivalent to giving the middle finger in America. This is seen as one of the rudest gestures you can make in Brazil and should always be avoided. *When sneezing or coughing you should cover your mouth and nose, if not so it is treated as impolite. *You should not get the attention of waiters, servers or store workers in Restaurants or stores with gestures or by snapping fingers as it is considered offensive. *it is considered rude not to open the gift in front of the person who gave it.

The main insect which affects bananas is the fruit fly. *Mango: There is a large mango export market in Brazil. They pick the fruit green, export it, and ripen it with ethylene gas at the destination. Mangos are slightly bigger than a softball and are usually yellow inside. Their taste resembles ripe peaches.
