   Being asked in Portuguese or in English, both are fine with me. No problem.
   The problem would be somebody with some level of English coming and asking in Portuguese, since the goal is learning English. In doing so, we don´t turn ourselves in the laughing stock, but then, we can´t know if our language skills are in good shape or updated or even rusty.
    Even so, it is not my business. Hence my answering just the same. Though one could lose an opportunity to get his work corrected, added, edited, apprased, rephrased or something more.
   However, it is not big deal for me, one can ask me in both languages.

 

 

   As for the question at hand, I gave the first and quicker answer I could, being certain that others would fill the possible gaps. They always do. 

    In fact, there´s nothing that you say that can´t be improved, so please consider my posts as a prelimininary answer, being subject to change and improvement. Ever.

 

   Back to the square one, 'assalto' in Portuguese has more than one meaning, I dealt with the robbery part, which was the one that I think more likely when the thread started.

  Dale´s explanation gave us another meaning of 'assalto' that of an 'ataque/atentado etc', nice job Dale, keep up the good work.
