Some vocabulary & grammar is still Brazilian

For the course, some vocabulary or spelling is still Brazilian Portuguese:

Portuguese 2:

  • Socks - Should be peúgas (POR), not meias (BR)
  • Both ‘why’ and ‘because’ are written as ‘porque’

Portuguese 3: Uma infecção (BR) should be uma infeção (POR)

Portuguese 6:

  • Suntan lotion (should be sunscreen) - Is Protetor solar instead of Protector solar
  • um actor/uma actriz should be um ator/uma atriz
  • Similarly, current should be ‘atual’ not ‘actual’
  • The action: Should be uma ação instead of uma acção
