1.What do you think about Lula? Is he really the best president we ever had?
R: Not the best president, for sure. I did not vote for him, I don't agree with many of his attitudes and decisions. But I believe he has good intentions, at least.

2.What do you do in your free time?
R: I practice swimming, get out with friends, study English, etc...

3.What do you look for in a friend?
Anne Dietrich posted an interesting sentence some time ago: "Good friends don't let you do stupid things... alone!" - This one express perfectly what a good friend is.

4.Do you think Ayrton Senna was better than Schummacher? Is Senna the best race driver of all time?
The best, ever. There's nothing to argue about.

5.What do you like best about soccer?
What I like best is the fact that Tricolor is hexa champion ;)

Olá Pessoal,

Como as respostas são pessoais não há como fazer um gabarito.Mas vou esclarecer dúvidas que possam surgir.

Tiago,

Sim,é possível "what do you most like about".Não uso muito, mas o Google retorna 4,720,000 ocorrências para esta expressão.

Flávia,

Recomendo o uso de "four-times champion" para tetracampeão,"five-times champion" para pentacampeão,"six-times champion" para hexacampeão",etc.

Boa sorte!

Complemtando...

Para dizermos por exemplo "O flamengo é hexacampeão":

Fleamengo is six-times Champion of Brazil.

Ou

Flamengo is six-times Brazilian Champion

My Answers:
1. I would not say he's the best ever or even the worse one, I guess nobody's perfect. But at least he is not solding ''us'' out.
2. I read books and study foreign languages, from English to Ancient Latin. Terrific!
3. A simple answer: A loyal, smart, sometimes weird and crazy friend is good enough for me.
4. Although Schumi is an excellent driver, Senna was way better than him. He's gone but his memory still lingers so R.I.P. man.
5. The best thing about soccer is the fact there are two teams I love so much and it's always giving me a reason to smile... their names are Corinthians ^^ and FC Bayern Munich (it kinda inspired me to study the German language).

Espero que as frases estejam pelo menos 50% certas. ^^

A genuine friend should always ask you, "Are you sure you're doing the wrong thing?" (according to Leonard Cohen).

Even Obama thinks he's the man. Juca Chaves is tolerant: "Ele pode beber quanto quizer. Ele não dirige."

If you play billiards, english is a useful skill. (With lower case, ok?)

I insist on calling it "football." I tell my friends here, "You know, the one you play with your feet, not your hands."

Have fun!

R: I don´t think he is the best President we ever had. I think he is in the right place at the right moment. Somethings are good, somethings are bad.

Good job. Did you know that it is a standard expression to say "in the right place at the right time?"

2.What do you do in your free time?
R: I like to play paddle, indoor soccer and study English.

Sorry, what is paddle? Canoeing? ping pong?

3.What do you look for in a friend?
R: A friend should be honest and a kind of easygoing.

When you put in the article 'a' you need to add a noun. Either say "kind of easygoing" or "a kind of easygoing [guy, person]"

4.Do you think Ayrton Senna was better than Schummacher?Is Senna the best race driver of all time?
R: I think Ayrton Senna could be better than Schummacher, but unfortunately we couldn´t see the end of that history.

Since Senna died, you should use the past tense. I think that Senna [could have been, was] better...but... we couldn't see the end of that story (not history).

5.What do you like best about soccer?
R: It´s when all players of a soccer team work as one and they can build victories all together.

Obs.: Question 5. Could it be "What do you most like about soccer?"?
Yes, as has already been answered, it is equivalent to say 'most' in place of 'best'.

Best Regards,

Felipe Haag

Well done, Flavia. I checked your work and did not find any errors except the verb agreement: 'express' should be 'expresses', but I assume it was a typo (error digitando).

Great suggestion Donay. The adjective is "five-time" (singular). You only use the word 'time' in plural in sentences like: They lead their team to the championship five tmes.

Hey Mary,

Thanks for all information.

About paddle, I´ve copied some parts of a text that I´ve found on the web at http://www.andalucia.com/sports/paddle.htm

"A paddle court is smaller than a tennis court, with simple line markings. It has high surrounding walls of glass and/or solid construction. The scoring is similar to tennis and it is played in doubles. A game is the best of three sets. Where it differs most from conventional tennis is in the use of what resembles a giant table tennis bat, instead of a strung racquet, and the service is under rather than overhand.

It has often been described as easier to get to grips with and more instantly gratifying than tennis. It is a game for all ages, which allows the whole family to join in. The meteoric rise in its popularity over the past few years is proof of how enjoyable it is.

Many people believe that it comes from Mexico. It is said that Enrique Corcuera, who lived in Acapulco, did not have enough space around his home to build a tennis court, so with an area of 200 square metres he constructed a 20x10m court, enclosing it with walls three and four metres high. Instead of a tennis racquet, the game was played with a short handled wooden bat. In 1974, when his friend Alfonso de Hohenlohe, travelled from Spain to visit Corcuera in Acapulco, Hohenlohe enjoyed this new game so much that he brought the idea back to Marbella.

After much study and deliberation over the correct design of the court and rules of the game, the first two paddle tennis courts were built at the Marbella Club. Alfonso Hohenlohe was then delighted to share his new found passion for pádel with the Marbella jet set. It soon caught on and since then has gone from strength to strength along the coast and across Spain.

Very quickly the tennis fraternity, including big names like Manolo Santana, were attracted to paddle tennis and soon tournaments were being organised along the Costa del Sol as more and more clubs built their own courts.

A millionaire friend of Hohenlohe who regularly visited Marbella was so impressed with the game that he took the idea with him back to Argentina. Now, more than two million Argentinians have taken up the game, making it one of the most popular sports played in the country. More recently, paddle tennis has taken off in other South American countries and is very big in America and Canada."

As far as I live near Argentina, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, it was easier to know the sport, because here paddle has become very popular.

You can find some videos at YouTube as this one:
