Hi all, If I were trying to sound persuasive and confident (!) how could I say: If I was approaching a completely new topic then, just as in English, I would have to familiarise myself with the new terminology. My effort is below: Se eu abordasse um tema novo, tais como em Ingles, eu precisara me habituar com o novo vocabulario. I am really not sure about the correct verb for 'approach,' but I know aproximar-se doesn't sound correct. Also, I am not sure if the above is overly formal, it is meant for spoken conversation. Thanks very much.
