Mensagem:  The rule is:
"i" before "e" except after "c"

For example:
- believe ("i" before "e")
- friend ("i" before "e")
- receive (except after "c")
- deceive (except after "c")

However, this rule has many exceptions:
- weird
- foreign
- society
- science

I guess the best option is still memorizing the words. :)
