Come to think of it, I dont personally know anybody here in the E.U. who uses a lot of gestures when they speak..but the few brzlns that I know and have met are quite animated and love to make hand gestures as well as a few unconventional sounds from their mouths (when they may disapprove of something). Has anybody else noticed this?

My mom sez that if you chop off Brazilians' hands they would be mute.

haha...I'm from the north pole, but i think i'm more animated than any brasilian
(i've actually hurt people while "talking)

But in general, Adam, i think you may be right. So, does anybody wanna make up a theory on why brasilians (and not just brasilians) are more animated than some other people? Culture? Climate? What?

I think my favorite one so far is the equivilent to our shoulder shrug. When the two hands sort of slap each other back and forth, meaning "I dont care."

I think Italians are more animated with their hands. When I've said I am Italian, in response a couple times Brazilian have said that Italians are Brazilians, just with more hand waving.
