Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Ana: When you go shopping in Brazil, you’ll notice that the cashier won’t give small change like 2 or 3 cents. It’s because in Brazil, one cent coins are not used anymore. Instead, they round up or down to a number that ends in 0 or 5. For example, if you buy something that costs 1 real and 98 cents, you probably won’t receive any change if you give 2 reals to the cashier. If the price is 2 reals and 42 cents, the cashier will return 60 cents if you give him 3 reals.

Outro

Eric: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Ana: Tchau!

Olá, Cheray!


That's it! We usually don't expect the cashier will give back one cent. /But most of the prices are like 2.99 , 4.99 just to get the client's attention.

Hi I’m sorry I’m a little confused with the cultural insight on how money works so In Brazil the cashiers will not give you exact change because there is no 1 cent is that correct
