      Por serem very similar to words in Portuguese, esses danados called ‘false friends’ enganam a gente. Open your eyes!

REFRIGERATOR is not ‘refrigerante’, it’s FRIDGE.

Example: Maria needs a new refrigerator

(Important: Bebidas like Guaraná are called soda).

INVITE is not ‘enviar’, it’s ASK TO COME.

Example: “Não entre sem ser invited.”

(Important: Quando você quiser enviar something, you send it).

REPAIR is not ‘reparar’, it’s FIX.

Example: My bicycle quebrou. Na oficina eles levaram 3 hours para repair it – mas ela ficou como new!”

(Important: Reparar em algo é notice it).
