As this forum contains many (inspirational) videos on Brazilians speaking English, I decided to open this thread so that I could share with you some of the videos I know of. It is amazing to see so many Brazilians doing so well overseas. And just as amazing to notice how simple is speaking English when we are in an informal conversation rather than other formal situations.
Using some refined vocabulary and structures will definitely make us stand out from other speakers of the language...And that`s why I reckon my favourite "famous Brazilian speakers of English" are film director Walter Salles and the Minister Celso Amorim.
Pick and choose your favourite famous Brazilian English speaker!
