What should visitors do when they come to Brazil?

What should visitors do when they come to Brazil?

We asked football fans in Brazil a series of questions about Brazilian football and culture and English. In this video, the fans tell us what visitors should see if they visit Brazil. Where do you think the fans will recommend? Do you know any famous places in Brazil?

Watch the video and complete the activities.

Tapescript

First watch the video, then, if the video is too difficult, try reading the tapecript to help your understanding.

Patricia: If you're in Rio, do just all the touristy things. They're great, you know.... Sugarloaf and the Christ.

Emanuela: Go to nice restaurants, eat a lot of seafood, try some Capirinhas.

Sabrina: They should try the food which is very, very good, and err try to go to the beach.

Joao: They should visit the beach. Definitely.

Mateus: Go to the beaches and see Christ's statue.

Peter: Go to the beaches, try to know a little bit of the local history.

Aloisio: Well, they need to know more about the Brazilian history because a very rich history. People come here only to see Copacabana or monuments like Christ or Sugarloaf. But they really need to know more about Rio and the other cities they're going to visit, like cultural things, historical facts and this kind of stuff.

Fernando: But also try to find out something you're really interested in, even if it's far away or hidden away, try to find something special for you.

Walerie: The Sambas for example, and definitely to ...... I think that's my advice.

Joao Pedro: They should see the lagoon. Go, take a ride around it. And see the sunset in ........

Artur: Go to the beach, of course. You should go to the sightseeing places.........

Ana: I think that visitors should try to escape from the obvious, so just walk around the streets and talk to people. Everyone's going to be very excited to show these tourists Rio around.

Emanuela: You know and visit, like, outdoors, do outdoors activities. Go to some trails, I don't know, they have really nice nature activities.

Patricia: And enjoy the nature, I think just walk around the city.

I'm from Ecuador and in my country you definitevely needs to visit the historical downtowns of Quito and Cuenca and obviously The Galapagos Islands. One of the touristic aspects of my country is the gastronomy so you should try the typical food from each region. If someday I go to Brazil I would like to visit the Amazon rainforest and the cities of Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre. Some stadiums around the world I would to visit or see are The Maracana, Anfield, El Centenario in Uruguay, La Bombonera in Argentina, The Signal Iduna Park in Germany and so many others.

I'm sure that there are so many things to see in Brazil that you would need years to feel the spirit of that country. I always wanted to visit Wembley, Maracana and La Bombonera.

Tips

Remember! We use 'should' when we think it is a good idea for someone to do something and to give people ideas and advice. We use 'shouldn't' when we think something is a bad idea. 
Try to think of some of your own sentences using 'should' and 'shouldn't'.
