Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Ana: If you want, you can freely move the por que to the end of the sentence in Portuguese instead. For example, Você chegou atrasado por quê? In this case, you need to add a circumflex accent, since it's at the end of the sentence.

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!

Para chegar no meu apartamento, você tem que viajar ao centro da cidade. Não fica longe da estação de trem. Há dez minutos do pé.
