The Top 85 Mistakes Brazilians Make in English was written specifically for Brazilians studying English. The author of this book is an experienced native English teacher who has been working in Sao Paulo for almost five years.
During this time he has taught a variety of students, ranging from CEOs of multinational companies to kids, models and journalists, from housewives and actors to a whole host of professionals in between. It didn't take him too long to realize that the same mistakes were being made by these students again and again and again!
This is when he came up with the idea of writing a book on the common mistakes he hears his Brazilian students making. Knowing these mistakes is one thing, being able to remember them when speaking English is another. So as well as pointing out common errors, this book also offers some tips and explanations on how to make those mistakes a thing of the past!
You will soon notice that this is definitely not your average English book. It dares to go where the more traditional books don't. As a result you can expect to hear about things Brazilians say that are likely to make a native English speaker laugh; those common mistakes that are either going to sound sexual, could embarrass the person you're talking to, or are likely to just sound very, very funny!
If your English is of an upper intermediate/advanced level and you are interested in knowing the mistakes your English teacher hears on a daily basis (or those embarrassing mistakes you definitely don't want to be making in meetings with your international colleagues!), The Top 85 Mistakes Brazilians Make in English is the book for you!
So, how many of these 85 mistakes do you make?
