"Today I expect to get to sleep." That's so acceptable... but it wont count. I am a NATIVE Portuguese speaker. Even google translator get it right. https://translate.google.com.br/?sl=auto&tl=pt&text=expect&op=translate. I'm mad :/ Edit: "Hope" translates as "esperança" And this is widely different from "esperar" that is analogous of expectancy (expectativa em português) in English .
