St Patrick’s day is arriving. The brazilians also celebrate this date .

Profile photo of asmreis asmreis

    It’s not a public holiday or a traditional celebration in Brazil.
    Some people just throw private parties called St. Patrick’s Day.

    Thanks, Ronnie. Have fun!!

    Profile photo of sergiobrito sergiobrito

    Sorry, but I don’t think we Brazilians celebrate St.Patrick’s Day…Not in the way Ronnie says it’s celebrated in some places, at least…

    St Patrick’s day pass

    Profile photo of drea drea

    I agree with Janilza. We do have the lent here in Brazil, but until I finished my English Course, I had never heard anything about St. Patrick’s Day.
    I can’t jugde because I don’t know if only in São Paulo it isn’t a holiday…

I have a question about one word. Is the same “holiday” and “public holiday”. What is the diference between them??

Thank you!!

Profile photo of Lita Nedu Lita Nedu

    I am not sure, but I think public holiday is a offical state holiday

As a matter of fact, in Brazil, we don’t use to celebrate St. Patrick days, except some english schools in order to show the english language culture, but, in my opinion is non-sense celebrate it here, just to have fun. By the way… it was a great lesson!

Profile photo of Arshad.M Arshad.M

Dear Ronnie. To my surprise I see on the whiteboard behind you ‘hoilday’ instead of holiday. I am not Irish, but I don’t believe that that is the Irish pronunciation of holiday :D Nevertheless, I love your videos

Profile photo of JakobN JakobN

If I could I would like to exchange our holiday carnival by the Irish holiday St. Patrick’s Day, so we would lose only one day instead of 5 working days, drinking and doing stupid things …

I got 100 but pass two questions that I did not remember.

Profile photo of mahanengvid mahanengvid

Which sentence is correct?
1-you should set quitly and respect
Or
2-you should set quitly and respectly

Profile photo of rosemarry rosemarry

    Both sentences are grammatically incorrect: set what? quietly (not quitly), respectfully (not respectly, respect).

    “set” is a transitive verb which must be accompanied by a direct object (noun) and always followed by an adverb or preposition.

    You should set a cremation urn down quietly and respectfully.

Hello Ronnie, There’s always been a doubt
poppin in my mind, i has nothing to wiht this lesson, but i think that many brazilians have
doubts about it: what is the difference between make/ask questions?

Profile photo of ryroxy ryroxy

My fellow students at elementary school told me long ago that if a person did not wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, then that person would get pinched by a fellow student at school.

Profile photo of lucyjoy33 lucyjoy33

To Abanob2015 Immature people who do not like to follow rules are always looking for an excuse to not follow the rules even during Lent.

These people do not realize that the purpose of making a sacrifice is to prove you love religious virtue more than your luxury habit. Therefore it is easy to give up your luxury.
