    Smile Foreigner or foreign?

    Dear friends,

    I saw this ad written at English school entrance: "Portuguese classes to foreigner people". I think it should be "foreign people" and "for" not "to".

    Right Ubiraci, you are right. But we don't we use" Foreigner" instead of "foreign people"?

    Welcome, Ubiraci.
    I agree with you, and Belly T, "to" should be "for".

    Correction
    I saw this ad written in/at the entrance of an English school...

    All the best.
