      Some words em English podem te enganar. Pay attention, they’re false friends!

APPLICATION is not “aplicação”, is request, register, or use.

Example: The bank aceitou Ana’s application para um empréstimo de US$ 2,500.

(Important: Para aplicar money, por exemplo, você deve use ‘to invest’).

COMPREHENSIVE is not “compreensivo”, it’s something very complete, that includes all items.

Example: Paul’s school has a comprehensive curriculum.

(Important: Alguém compreensivo, é alguém understanding, tolerant ou sympathetic).

INTEND is not “entender”, is to have a plan , an intention.

Example: We intend to live in London for a year.

(Important: Don’t confuse com “to understand“).
