"muito"just mean "a lot of" or "many" but not "too much" Am I wrong? "too much" would be "demais" ?

  • Many =muitos/muitas.
  • Much = muito/muita.
  • Too much = demais.

But if you emphasize "muito" it "becomes" too much...

But do not forget you have to add "demais" after the word açúcar: Ela pôs açúcar demais no café.

They should count ´demais´ as good!
