Hi andreiyuriyev174727!

Great question! Basically,

tocar - means "to play an instrument."
Eu toco violão. - "I play guitar."

brincar - means "to have fun, to play with"
Minha filha brinca muito com os brinquedos dela. - "My daughter plays with her toys a lot."

jogar - means "to play (a game)"
Eles gostam de jogar futebol. - "They like to play soccer."

or

"to throw (something)"
Eu jogei a bola. - "I threw the ball."

Did that help?

So far as this repeating time period have concerns, we have now experienced combined feedback. Some individuals imagine many of us currently complete a lot of (it is Overall Starter immediately after all) and others (like yourself) insufficient. So as to make as numerous folks content as it can be (very important inside Brazilian culture) many of us chose that the first time of each string will have almost anything inside Language other than this matters this session concentrates on. In the next time we'll complete this change and by generally there with keep this inside Portuguese. Therefore, this brand new Overall Starter 3 will start this cross over for the Portuguese and stay with it from their with although Starter Season 1 may nevertheless contain the Language using Starter 3 possessing generally Portuguese. Very same while using different levels.
