Very good lesson. Thanks.

Hi Ronnie, how are you?

Thanks for this lesson. It’s a very interesting issue to cover, but, let me include another one False Friend.

The word “grocery” (place to buy food) sounds almost the same as “grosseria”, that in Portuguese means “the rude manner to treat someone”.

Isaias Menezes Silva

I will never watch this again I didn’t find any interesting word in this lesson

Anna amal

    Yes, Although I am a native Portuguese speaker, I can see and understand your point of view Rana B.

    This video doesn’t detract anything from EngVid’s content; it just adds to it. The site has more than a thousand lessons so, whatever you’re trying to learn, there is a high probability there’s already a video for it. Since they’ve already covered a good part of English from the point of view of a native English speaker, it’s just natural they would start making lessons aimed at specific kinds of non-native English speakers (for example, see the videos “False Friends: English mistakes that Spanish speakers make” and “English Pronunciation for Russian Speakers”). If you think there are kinds of mistakes Persian speakers usually make in English, then you could point them out and suggest a lesson about “English Tips for Persian Speakers”.

    Pedro

Very Cool!

good lesson

andres.9611

Thanks Ronnie, great class!

Diegok99

This is useful for teachers too! I always hear students trying to use pretend when they mean intend.

Alex

    Hi Alex! ‘pull’ and ‘push’ X ‘puxar’ and ’empurrar’ are even worse, aren’t they?

I am Brazilian and I loved this class! You are an amazing teacher and I’ve been loving learning you all!
Thank you so much!

cmf88

Hi Ronnie! I really love your lesson and I do thank you very, very much for this. You are right ‘push’ and ‘pull’, as well as ‘intend’ and ‘pretend’ are very confusing words for us Portuguese speakers. But, if I may, maybe this lesson is not much to all those students around the world that do not speak Portuguese… Just my opinion. Thanks a lot!

John B

Tx Ronnie!

Dudurito

Thank you for the lesson. It really help us Brazilians! It was very kind of you!

False friends (or false cognates) are always a source of amusement/confusion to me :) My “favorite” is the “pretender/pretend” pair, because it can create terrible misunderstandings, especially at job interviews (I’ve already heard about people saying “I pretend to work hard” during a job interview) :P

Pedro

Very good exercise

MarcosPecanha

I love your tips! Thanks!!!
But I Have a doubt…
Pasta’ in Portuguese is equivalent to ‘________’ in English.
The correct answers is toothpaste, isn¨t?

Maybe “Colar” in Portuguese is equivalent to ” to glue” or “to paste” in English…
sorry, I´m confused…

Lili2018

Ronnie,
I am Weydson, from Recife, Brazil. I think you really have affection for our country. You are a great teacher. The most difficult words to memorize are:
PUSH = EMPURRAR, IN PORTUGUESE
PULL = PUXAR, IN PORTUGUESE

I got to know this website a long time ago and every time people talk about Canada I remember you.

By the way, very nice pronunciation in Portuguese.

weydson

Thanks, your class is very important for me. I loveit.

Balduvina

Very useful! A must admit that Pretend was one of my common mistakes when I was starting learning English.
Thanks Roonie!

JonasPaulo

Amazing ! this words are easy to confuse. The explanation was great !

bruno.missio

I laughed a lot listening to you speak Portuguese because it made me think about the times we spoke in English and we think it’s right, when in fact, what you’re hearing is a strange sound.

OliveiraSi

thank

Quvonchbek

thanks for well me the explaining.

maaz wahid

“Colar” is the same word for collar and to glue.

Taturi

Thank you very much Ronnie!
Muito obrigado, Ronnie!

FranciDom

Serik

Pretendor?? rsrsrrs.. it was funny.

Rodrigomaia32

Thanks, Ronnie. But, in Portuguese, there are a lot confusion between homonym words. It’s difficut for ours, Portuguese taechers, to explicate for our students sound and/or writing and meaning of that kind If words.

VicFaria

Cida Ribeiro

I love Brasil

Cida Ribeiro

Hi,Ronnie,you are so amazing! I can get some knowledge for every lesson.I’m not a native English speaker and a Portuguese speaker, but I Think I will have a travelling in Portuguese regions in the future. Today’s lesson is useful to me if I Still remember them.

ivyliu

wooooow.very good.Ronnie you are amazing…greetings from Brazil

jessicaflores

Niiiceee!! :D

ProjectHeidemann

I’m feeling so special right now. Thank you for make this lesson just for us!

Stein

Much better 86% thanks Ronnie balcao balcony…🤔bar😀

Cataleya2

I loved your pronunciation. When you said “pretender” you pronounced “pretendor”, with “O” sound at the end of the word. The Brazilian “E” vowel sound is like “E” of “Education”. Sounds funny but we know Portuguese is sucks, it’s really difficult.I’m from Brazil and we always stumble in English pronunciation.

raquelister

Teacher Ronnie, I really like your lessons because you are smart and funny. I admire all of the Engvid teachers.
