Mr. Schmidt is calling his local insurance company to ask for an information.
– Good morning! Fake Insurance Company. What can I do for you?
– Good morning! I’m Mr. Paul Schmidt
If we translate his answer into Portuguese, it would sound like this:
– Bom dia! Fala o Sr. Paul Schmidt.
Wow! Wow! Wow! Knowing that Mr. is translated to Sr. (Senhor), be aware that you should never treat yourself by Sr. (or Sra. if you’re a women) when presenting yourself to someone, in Portuguese.
So, always answer:
– Good morning! I’m (your name)
This is specially hard to apply by French people, much more than by English people. I don’t know why.
