Yes, the carnival here is very famous, but I don't like it, I think it's good for tourist but for the people that live here I don't know. Normally most part of the people leave the city and go to other cities to take as rest, normally on the beach or on the mountains.

Hi Imagination. In fact Portuguese it's a beautiful language but it's very defifcult to learn. To learn english it's very easy, there are a few rules. Portuguese it's more complicated there are a lot of rules. Even the native has problems sometimes. I can help you, if you want, with this task, Bye. :D

Hi Dexter, only today I return to the forum and I could see your message. Like you I was out these days and cannot accompany the messages. It's cool to see that you reply my last message send to you. It's been interesting to be here making good friends from all parts of the world. It's important too, not only to improve our English but to know how our friends are how it's their country and culture, enrich us.

Hi Jancouto! Yes, I also think that Portuguese is not so easy to learn, especially the pronunciation! It seems very difficult (at least for me). Anyway, I'd still like to know it. It would be great if you could help me with that task! :D I could help you with English.....What do you say?! :D

It'll be very funny :D

The pronunciation it's difficult in any language. The problem is that we aren't immersed on the languange and because this we need more effort to achieve a good accent.

Yes, Jancouto, you're right ....but when I compare it to English, I think that Portuguese pronunciation is much harder than English. As I said before....at least for me...And those accents are confusing me all the time... I don't know where and when to put them. :)

Thanks for your reply and nice to see you in EC again.

Yeah, making friends from around the world is really interesting, but it's also important to keep them. Keeping a friend is more difficult than finding friend. :D

I like knowing about people from other countries and I find it really intersting to know about their customs and also their languages. I love learning new languages and I wanna know as many languages as I can. Although i haven't been able to fulfill that dream, but I wanna try my best :P

I don't know how difficult Portuguese language is, but I'll try learning it someday! For now I've asked Elba to teach me Spanish and she's doing me that favor. Maybe I'll ask you to teach me portuguese, too (not in EC, the rules don't allow that). Will you please help me with it if I want to learn Portuguese? :D

Hi Dexter. It'll be a pleasure to teach something about my language for a friend. Portuguese has a lot of rules and for foreigners it's difficult mainly because they are not immersed an environment where all things that you see or do it's in Portuguese, but If you are studying Spanish it'll be more easy to study Portuguese, both languages very are similar.

You said that it's easy to find a friend but it's more difficult to keep them. You are right, to find people and to talk to then it's easy and fast, mainly here on internet. I think to keep them it's more difficult because you don't have the presence of person. Sometimes you write or "talk", without compromise with the people on the other side. Friendship with this way don't last so much.

Dexter my e-mail is jcouto@dba.com.br if you wanna to start a good friendship write me. :)

Imangination, it's funny, for me the English pronunciation it's more difficult. There are sounds in this language that we don't have in Portuguese. We need to twist our tongue trying to speak to correctly.

In Portuguese we use accents to stress some word. There are many rules to do this, it's easier to memorize the word.

Jancouto, it's normal thing that Portuguese pronunciation is easier for you. It's your mother tongue. But English is not my native language. I also think that the pronunciation of my language is the easiest one. Although I've noticed that many foreigners have problems with it.
That's why I tried to compare English and Portuguese. It was much easier for me to learn the pronunciation of English.And it seems to me that Spanish pronunciation is less difficult than Portuguese although those two languages are similar.
However, I hope I'll be able to learn it :D

Thanks, Augusto :D But you know, I'm very basic in Spanish now. I only know a few words. I hope I'll improve soon :P

About friendships over the net, yeah, it's more difficult to keep those friends but at the same time sometimes people prefer to talk to someone they don't know or are far from. But as you said, these relationships need more time, and also more care. And I don't deny that they can become good friends, too.

Thanks for your e-mail address. I don't have much time for spending over the net these days and in coming days it's gonna become less and less. But I'll try to mail you when I'm free. I hope you don't mind! See you :D
