You're doing better than a lot of native English speakers.
For what it's worth, brakes are different from breaks although both are nouns. Just to be even more confusing, break is also a verb that means something different from the noun of the same spelling. At least the word brake is a little more sane in that your brakes are what allow you to brake, hopefully allowing you to stop your car.
