Question:

Quais são as principais diferenças entre o português de Portugal e o do Brasil?

Inactive
Debora F.
Answer:

A forma escrita da língua é muito semelhante nos dois países, o que muda é a pronúncia de certas letras e sons. No Brasil, muitas vogais têm um som diferente no final da palavra. Por exemplo: o L final de uma palavra normalmente tem som de U (ex: papel tem o som de papeu); quando a letra O é a última, ela costuma ter ser pronunciada como U (ex: rascunho tem o som de rascunhu); a letra E quando vem ao final da palavra podesoar como I (ex: andaime tem o som de andaimi). Os dois países costumam trocar a ordem dos pronomes em uma frase. Em Portugal, é costume usar o verbo seguido pelo pronome, e no Brasil usa-se o pronome antes do verbo. Exemplo: dá-me um abraço(Pt) e me dá um abraço (Br). Além disso, ha algumas diferenças de vocabulário entre os países e até mesmo de acordo com a região de cada país, o que se chama "regionalismo".

Question:

What is the past perfect tense and how do you use?

Inactive
Debora F.
Answer:

The past perfect tense is used for talking about things that happened before a particular point in time, which you are usually discussing. If you are telling a story about what you did yesterday, for example, you can use the past perfect when you wish to explain to your reader about a previous condition or action, that happened before that. You form the past perfect by using this formula: subject + had + past participle of the verb Here is an example: I was walking home from school when I remembered I had forgotten my homework inside my locker.

Question:

What are the main characteristics of the Constructivist theory of Education?

Answer:

Constructivism is a theory that views the act of learning as a two-way street between teacher and student. In this model, the teacher helps students take an active role in their learning by asking questions and suggesting projects that need a hands-on approach in regards to research or the creation of something. Through trial and error, questioning and hypotheses, students construct their own knowledge with the help of educators, who are aware of their progress and challenges each step of the way.
