Tip 23. Say olhar not mirar

In Portuguese, “to see” is olhar. The verb mirar does exist in Portuguese but it has a different meaning. In Portuguese, mirar means “to aim,” as in having something in the crosshairs.

Example:
English: Look at that guy all painted in green and yellow!
Spanish: ¡Mira a ese tipo pintado de verde y amarillo!
Portuguese: Olha aquele cara todo pintado de verde e amarelo!
