    Looking for native English teachers in Sao Paulo to help with a growing demand of students. Please email me at lara@soletospeak.com.br

    Thanks

    Is there much demand for The Queens English rather than a mid-west American drawl in classes? A few people can vouch for me here – I speak English like some of the cast of Downton Abbey (the ones who live upstairs, not those below) and would like to cash in on this. I can answer the Sandhurst entrance exam test:

    1. What do we breathe?

    2. What grows on our head?
    3. Where does a Lion live?
    I bleed blue blood.
    Joking apart – when I do give up my corporate world, is there a market for English classes learning British English rather than American English? Where we never talk about fannies in polite conversation and we would never dream of having our driver try and put our trunk in an elephants nose?

    i just washed my hands of a client today who, i swear, insisted that all translations be done into British English because it is “purer and less tainted”, even if the end client requested otherwise. believe it or not, i frankly didn’t care about that (it’s their dime, or farthing or whatever, i’ll throw in an extra u and drive on the left side of the dual carriageway), i dumped this client for other reasons.

    so Finrudd, maybe you and your accent have a bright future. want the address?

    In all seriousness, I do know someone in BH who does something along the lines of British English Proof Reading who might be interested, and he probably has family who LIVED in the stately home from Downton Abbey! Hpeak knows him too! SmileIf you want to refer them to someone then I would happily put this person in contact and see if he fits the bill. I get almost as many blank stares for my British English Accent as I do comments on how nice it sounds. I would personally suggest most Brazilians are far better off learning American English than British English, least they end up learning from a Cockney, Geordie or Yorkshireman! For such a small island, we have a massive diversity in vocabulary and regional accents.

    Whenever I try to feign an English accent, I sound like a drunk Indian. Not feathers on head Indian. Dot on head Indian.

    Would help people decide if you put the pay per hour in the post.
    Wasted 4 hours the other day where the lady advertised $100 per class and when I got there shes like, ‘its a two hour class, and you start at $80. The $100 is after your probation is over and you’re working at least 4 classes.
    f**kin schools, man.
