Brazilians Should be Braver Enough to Show their English

It has been a while since I have noticed something about these who decides of somehow to work in the field of language learning and teaching in Brazil. They are always boasting of their skills in English, how amazing their methods are. Not to mention the unpleasant fact that they are always clogging our email inbox with learning methods. So far, so good, but what intrigues me is that they-do-not-show-us-their-English. I mean, if you search for a video, Podcast or interview on the internet in which they are speaking in English, you will find nothing at all. And I keep wondering why this is so. Whereas the same scenario in other countries is a different story. I have the feeling that teachers, as well as learners, they fear to get criticized or something like that.

In general, people in other countries do not feel embarrassed at showing their English, even when they speak broken English. I have ever watched many videos in which non-native English speakers are speaking with bad pronunciation and incorrect or awkwardly structured English, but guess what, they couldn't care less about it. And of course, there are also many people with exceptional English. I think this is awesome! The good thing is that whenever I watch these videos I feel inspired by them. I think to myself: If he/her succeeded I can succeed as well!

As I mentioned before, I do not care whether Brazilians speak it well or not, that is not my point. I just wanted to see more Brazilians speaking in English, making videos, vloggers and Podcasts in English, just as in other countries. It does not matter if they are English teachers or learners. I think that they should be braver enough to show their English and not just to talk about it. Many people would make the best of them by being inspired and having their confidence boosted. Undoubtedly, that would be great. I’m in the crowd rooting for it happens!

(Just an observation, I know someone very close who is British, and he observed that it's a confidence issue that appears more apparent in São Paulo State rather than in Rio, Curitiba, Londrina and Porto Alegre, some of the places he's been, where people seem to be more confident to speak English, in his opinion.)

This site encourages its members both to learn and to hone their English speaking (and others) skills. In other words, to show their English. And call me a chicken-hearted, ha ha. I am economical even with Portuguese words. ;)

Olá Paulo,

Puxa, muito obrigado por seus comentários e pelos links deixados, especialmente o link "Speaking English for 30 seconds a day". Faz um bom tempo que conheço o English Experts, porém, não fazia ideia que havia essa farramenta aqui. Fiquei super surpreso e empolgado ao descobrir. Com certeza farei uso dela.

O link dos Podcasts eu já conhecia, sou super fã, até vivo cobrando do Alessandro para continuar produzindo :D . Tem alguns episódios que eu já perdi a conta de quantas vezes eu já ouvi. No episódio com a Rachel eu fiquei muito feliz pelo fato do Alessandro ter citado meu nome, foi muito legal.

A propósito, Paulo, cadê o seu áudio lá no ""Speaking English for 30 seconds a day"? :roll: Deixe lá sua mensagem, gostaria de ouvir sua voz também. Faça isso, que eu também vou deixar a minha lá. ;)

Eu estou 100% de acordo com você quando diz que o EE incentiva as pessoas a colocarem seu Inglês em prática.

Abraço.

Well, not my cup of tea, or at least not yet. I don´t want to scare my friends away with my Donald Duck horrible raspy voice.
It would be something like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIDtPRP50uA

And glad that you like the link, all the time we discover new things around here! the site is almost all-emcompassing, covering almost or all interests, English-related. ;) I suppose farramenta was a typo, it certainly was!
