      Yes, it is! Unfortunately I don't know of any other Tolkien reader in
      Brazil, since I don't have much contact with brazilians (I don't speak
      portuguese at all).

      I'd recommend you read the Silmarillion afterwards, too, since that's
      where the languages develop, by the Lord of the Rings elvish languages
      are quite stable (I'm talking inside Middle Earth, not in Tolkien's
      head!). The Hobbit itself has little language relevance, but it's a
      great story (I still grab it from time to time and read a few pages)

      Don't worry about your English, no one will critize it here! And asking
      questions is the best way to learn, so feel free to ask anytime :)
