Grammar Lesson 18:  Word Order, Buses and Services
Mike Heidenreich puts lavalier mic on José Luis Montiel So how weird would it be to be a Brazilian in the United States and see for the first time a bicycle attached to the front of a city bus?  Sure enough, that would never happen on a bus in Brazil.  These are the kinds of observations that North Americans would never make because, well, we think it's normal.  It's all a matter of perspective.  This lesson talks about those kind of cultural differences, and we do so while going over a lesson about word order.  (We know the title doesn't sound all that exciting, but it really is an interesting grammar topic -- if you are into language learning.)
