    Brazil deserves more sound and vision. Rather dull - no visuals, nothing about music! How about asking students to find out the difference between samba and salsa music? Here's a list of words in English that come from Portuguese: albino, breeze, caste, flamingo, jaguar, marmalade, palaver. Here are some words that you will come across if you read about Brazil: bossa nova, ipanema, capoeira, cachaca, carnaval (so spelled) carioca, favela, feijoada, mato groso. The songwriter Zeca Baleiro has written a very funny song O Samba do Approach about the way that so many English words are adopted by Brazilians who want to show how cool and clever they are - a challenge for English students could be to see how many they can pick up! Here are the lyrics - it's easy to find the song on the web. venha provar meu brunch saiba que eu tenho approach na hora do lunch eu ando de ferryboat eu tenho savoir-faire meu temperamento é light minha casa é hi-tec toda hora rola um insight já fui fã do jethro tull hoje me amarro no Slash minha vida agora é cool meu passado é que foi trash fica ligada no link que eu vou confessar my love depois do décimo drink só um bom e velho engov eu tirei o meu green card e fui pra Miami Beach posso não ser pop star mas já sou um noveau riche eu tenho sex-appeal saca só meu background veloz como Damon Hill tenaz como Fittipaldi nao dispenso um happy end quero jogar no dream team de dia um macho man e de noite um drag queen Muito engracado!
