Hi everyone! This is my first post here, hope I dont spell anything wrong or something like that because my english is not that good as I'd like it to be ._.
So, to improve my english skills I'd like to learn from a native speaker =D
Well... even though Portuguese is a beautiful language and bla bla, difficult and bla bla, and almost nobody wants to learn it I'm offering it in exchange for improvements on English, since I'm a brazilian native.
It would be nice if I had someone to talk to at skype or something like that ^^
Well, that's it! Thanks

Welcome! :)

I'm no English native but in British English "Brasil" is spelt with an "s". Wink

"Brazil" is American English. Since the USA is much nearer to Brasil, it doesn't surprise me that AE is more popular in your country. Smile

Same applies to me, and sometimes I accidentally use an AE word or AE spelling but I try to stick to BE as much as possible. Smile
