Sanduíche is definitely my favourite Portuguese pronunciation so far.

In English I like "wardrobe" (which later I found out to be a transition from "guarda-roupas", which was both amazing and disappointing.)

  • Guarda-roupas (lit: cloth-keeper)
  • Gward-robes
  • Wardrobe

It's so obvious when you think about it (which I never had). Lots of English words are French via latin as you know (I don't know about this case). There are many more great Brazilian pronunciations, but I've forgotten them. Faceybooky's pretty funny. Tim Vickery (I've mentioned him before), often cracks up the presenter with Brazilian mispronunciations. I don't find this as funny as they do, but this is an example of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EgBILVTpPM

My native language is Spanish, so I assumed "maestro" = teacher. Duolingo says that is correct. It gives both "maestro" and "teacher" as acceptable answers. Which is it?

I was marked wrong for saying "The master eats a sandwich." That shouldn't be marked as wrong, when just a few exercises ago, it translated maestro as master.
