it could be about the culture,personaility, food etc. literally anything for example majority of americans think mexicans are lazy which is totally not true , were very hardworking :p
Não é todo mundo que gosta de futebol, o samba não é a musica que domina, as pessoas escutam mais musicas no estilo sertanejo rock e eletrônica, tem grandes cidades aqui, e as florestas são bem afastadas, não tem onça na cidade, os únicos animais andando na rua são cachorros haha (pelo menos onde eu moro) Tem uma grande variedade de pássaros é muito bom ouvir o canto deles de manha, apesar de ser um país tropical faz fio na região sul, que é onde eu moro, Parana, Rio Grande do Sul e Santa Catarina. A comida é barata principalmente frutas e carne comparado com alguns países, e tem bastante variedade. Já os equipamentos eletrônicos são bem caro. O pessoal aqui, trata bem as pessoas, ajudam bastante, somos bem amigáveis. As mulheres são bem bonitas mesmo hahaha (principalmente no sul). Usamos muito whatsapp para se comunicar, todo mundo tem! isso é muito legal, temos vários grupos, gostamos muito de fazer piadas e criar imagens engraçadas a pesar do pais estar em crise com a politica.
Football/Soccer (Not all Brazilians like it, obviously, but, yes, it is a big deal here)
Samba & Carnaval (Same as football, not everyone enjoys, but it's a great symbol of Brazilian culture and cities from all over the country celebrate)
Warm and happy people (Brazilians like to hug and to show affection all the time, which could seem "weird" for some other cultures).
Really connected to the internet with a wide variety of original memes and own vocabulary - especially for laughter (i.e: "kkkkkkkk", "ahuhuahuahua", "soakpsoakpsoak", "rsrsrsrs")
Violence is something that concerns a lot of Brazilians (It's not like we live in a war and we cannot go out, but it's impossible to ignore that violence is a real issue and it scares most of us).
Corruption is something really common (I'd say really standard).
Brazilians speak Spanish
The capital of Brazil is Rio or São Paulo (actually is Brasília)
Favelas are dangerous because only criminals and drug dealers live there (there are a lot of criminals and drug dealers, but most people that live there are honest)
Monkeys run around the cities (that's laughable. We only have monkeys inside zoos or forests).
huh, "soakpsaok" is new to me haha why does that mean laughing lol ive seen "kkkkkk" alot. Latinamerica makes alot of memes ive never seen a brazilian one? but i mean spanish and pr are different, i heard its easier for a brazilian to learn spanish than the other way around but who knows , romance languages are cool , were sooo different but at the same time were familly, were kinda like half brothers? except french , french is kinda like that distant cousin you see at family gatherings sometimes jeje
I reckon most people think every Brazilian knows how to play football (I do :P).
I'm from Brazil and I don't know how to play football, but I wanted to know how to play it... :(
I don't know how to play football
but maybe you know about wave surfing or you even regularly go kitesurfing / windsurfing?
Oi Thomas, actually I don't know how to play any sports, but I like sports very much, I am the person that watch the sports, while other people play it.
The majority of Americans do not think Mexicans are lazy. Us Americans are okay people, really!
I'm sure some do, but I'd be surprised if that was believed by a "majority". I think that's probably a false stereotype (about Americans), but will change my opinion if I see polling data showing otherwise.
yeah that's what i mean about stereotype , americans are cool well some of them since i mean no one is perfect.
Brazilians have a sweet tooth, or so stereotype would say. They like sweets, more cakes and pastries than candies.
Brazilians really like the tv show Everyone Hates Chris. I don't know why.
Another stereotype is that Brazilians are always walking around in skimpy swimsuits on the beach.
I was watching a Brazilian youtube show called Panico Na Band. On a random episode a guy was wearing a Everyone Hates Chris tank top kkkkkkk
youre brazilian american? I understand you haha well im hispanic but i see that youre trying to learn portuguese im pretty sure you understand but its the speaking part thats hard right? maybe you dont speak fluent like your parents its relatable , what state are you from? im from cali but ive never met a brazilian :(
thats so funny ive never heard about that one? jajaj i love candies :,( i have a major sweet tooth , you guys have delicious desserts like jaja send me some :,p , everybody hates chris is a good show so i don't blame anyone who likes it , its hilarious jjj
I have been living in São Paulo for ten months. Brazilian people are really nice, kind, mature, patient and educated. As far as I observed, they liked to buy small things while shopping. For example, if there are three size of some product they choose the smallest one all the time. It is funny because I always choose the biggest :D
That's cool haha i can relate , i mean its better to get the smallest since what if the product is terrible? and besides the biggest one is always the most expensive haha . How is your portuguese? , why are you living in brazil? and do you think your portuguese is better since you live there . i ask alot of questions haha im just curious
In some cases it is true but for some products buying the biggest is the cheapest when you calculate it, anyways :D My Portuguese is not so good right now. I try to improve it as soon as possible. Living here helps to improve it of course because Brazilians do not know other languages so, you need to speak and understand Porutuguese very well in order to live here. I came here to work as an interpreter. I know Turkish and English in advanced level. But i need to learn Portuguese, too. That is why I am here. Language is my job. I am a translator for businessmans.
There is another stereotype: Brazilians do speak other languages, specially english. Of course, does not hit the massive population, but It is already common hear brazilians speaking english (or trying to do it)!
Most people think that Brazilians speak Spanish and like soccer and samba, Could i tell that most people think that Brazil is only Rio and São Paulo and in other cities (specifically "Cities of the Amazonia") people living with jaguars? (but I think this type of stereotype is more of the Brazilians themselves, what is so funny) i hope i have helped.
