Some food for thought. And quite a fitting quote for my gift for you today. Click on the link for a beautiful pdf of the most common false friends that I have come across over the years. Some of these little weasels never fail to make their way into students’ writings, stealing the true meaning of what they actually want to say.
My personal favourite though, was at a wedding in Portugal and the official translator told us in English that we were there pretending to marry the bride and groom. Thankfully it wasn’t all pretend, they are legally married!
