Although you have made what appears to be a genuine effort to pass as a native speaker, your communique contains certain mistakes and errors in your English that clearly show negative transfer, the tendency to use the mother language (in this case, Portuguese) as a crutch when speaking or writing the second language (in this case, English).  Nevertheless, I'm impressed that you know how to say (should I say "write"?) words with up to three syllables.  True, you are experiencing spelling difficulties, but they can be overcome.  That is what this Forum is for:  mutual help. 

 

As for my mother, she has been dead for over 20 years.  But thank you for asking.

 

Dr. Dre, my full name is known to all and so is my e-mail address and even where I live.  I make no attempt to hide my identity or whereabouts.  Why don't you look me up some day?  We could talk about English, have a drink, or something.

 

Cheers!

 

Dale
