Thanks for your answer. I had figured out that your good fluency in Portuguese was due to the fact you lived in Brazil.
One can tell when someone can speak/write naturally using the native expressions. One thing though, you are using some old-fashioned slang. "Patota", "Braza,mora?!" kind of type of thing.
I would say your Portuguese learning is what this website tries to divulge. The Natural Approach of Krashen.
My English learning is very similar to the people who frequent this site. We come here basically because we love the English language and try to improve it overcoming the difficulties of learning it in a non-English speaking country.
Our tools are basically classes, books, movies, tv shows. It is a little hard to meet native speakers.
