then I could notice how different is his accent compared to that of her...
(foi) então que eu pude notar a diferença de sotaque no português deles... (ou - quando eles falavam em português.)...it´s when I am most driven to pick up the English accent as much as I can, and use it, so my Portuguese don´t show that much.
É então/são esses momentos quando eu fico mais incentivado a aprender/absorver o máximo da pronúncia (meio que sotaque -mais eu prefiro pronúncia aqui) que eu puder, e (a seguir) usá-la (a pronúnica) de modo que meu português não fique tão perceptível (don´t show up). Não fique tão longe de uma pronúncia nativa de inglês.
I am trying to do my best, to help out others, not only you. So, I can´t give exclusive attention, and my speaking skills sucks, by the way. It would be a bad thing to pass up bad English pronunciation or something like that. I am no teacher, or something , just a learner like you guys.
I myself have my issues, my job, my children that demand a lot of attention (this news that the younger kid got poor grades, mainly in Geometry, Algebra, English, Geography, etc. Wait! I said English? Geography? how come? pinch me, I must be having a bad dream!
Well, video-game generation, yikes!
This is only the tip of the iceberg, but I am not around here to be such a cry-baby, indeed English is my hobby and my high.
I am just saying that, to let you guys know that with hectic life or not, I will be doing my contientiously best, and I wish I had time to interact in any possible ways.
