Coitado means to feel sorry for someone

Brazilian Portuguese: Coitado do Brasil quando perdeu 7x 0 contra Alemania

English : I feel sorry for Brazil when the lost 7 x0 against Germany

The words are similar for foreigner when hear them but mean completly different things.

Living in a country where they use a different language from mine, it has forced me to learn and to use a new langauge. Not only I’m learning a new language but I have found a new perspective and appreciation to the where I’m from.
