Education New Zealand recruits two Brazilians to spread the word

To attract South American students (and the unsubsidised fees that come with them), Education New Zealand has arranged for Otago Polytechnic to host a pair of popular Brazilian bloggers for several weeks. Caio Komatsu and Luana Mazotti, both from Sao Paolo, are the founders of the blogs Fail Wars and Puro Veneno, which are said to reach a combined audience of approximately five million people. And the organisers of the campaign believe that the pair’s keyboard-tapping hobby could help to spread Latin American awareness of New Zealand, not only as a tourist destination but also as a great place to study.
