Hi Paulo,

 

Great post my friend. Thanks for replying with so many details, I appreciated!

 

About the fear, I still have some friends that are suffering the same thing. They know English but when

they have to talk they kinda panic. Some of them, like my wife, she can’t talk English on the phone.

Simply things, nope, she can’t do it. At first, I thought she was being lazy but no. She has some problems about

talking on the phone.

 

You’re right about me, I never saw or thought for the point of view. I think when one really needs to talk you don’t care

what the others might thing. Especially if you’re in a rush or something, you just speak.

 

I’m glad to know (I also hope this is happening) that people are studying more English in Brazil We’re a great country

and I truly believe we should master English and also Spanish. Once our neighbors  (most of it) speak Spanish it would

be good for the economy and business.

 

Once again thanks for the post.

 

Take care,

 

 

Sid.
