But, please if you are an English teacher, try to learn a little of your own language, your students will thank you for that.
Marco we know that you want the best and share your knowledge.
May I suggest you Perini (Para uma Nova Gramática do Português, Gramática Descritiva do português) and Bagno (Preconceito Lingüístico, A Língua de Eulália)?
You may not agree with them, but there's more in speaking and discussing about language than how to say it "right" or how should natives (the ones who own and produce language, if there's language it's because of them) speak it.
I guess people here love Portuguese, but Napoleão really hated the ones who speak it, he wanted people to speak a language that he thought was correct. If, say, more than 80% say isso é para mim fazer (I'm not telling this is true, it's just an example I want to illustrate) this is because it's "correct" to say so, if language didn't change we would still be speaking latin and English would still have declesions.
You can try this site: http://www.radames.manosso.nom.br/gramatica/index.htm
There's a lot of material on descriptive Grammar, the place of the standard dialect in our language and etc.
As language teachers we should be reminded of the basics sometimes:
I know that Ricardo has written aiming learners of a second language, but these principals can be applied for natives and what and how they do with their mother tongue.
