Lesson Transcript

Introduction
Eric: Welcome to 3-Minute Portuguese Season 1, Lesson 18 - Possession. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to talk about possession in Portuguese.
Body
Eric: Here's the informal way to say 'Do you have a pen?' in Portuguese.
Ana: [Normal] Você tem uma caneta?
Eric: First is a word meaning 'you'
Ana: [Normal] você [Slow] você
Eric: Next is the word meaning 'have'
Ana: [Normal] tem [Slow] tem
Eric: Next is the word meaning 'a'
Ana: [Normal] uma [Slow] uma
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'pen'
Ana: [Normal] caneta [Slow] caneta
Eric: Listen again to the informal phrase meaning 'Do you have a pen?'
Ana: [Slow] Você tem uma caneta? [Normal] Você tem uma caneta?
Eric: Ok, now let's take a look at the formal way to say 'Do you have a pen?'
Ana: [Normal] O senhor tem uma caneta?
Eric: First is a word meaning 'you'
Ana: [Normal] o senhor [Slow] o senhor
Eric: Next is the word meaning 'have'
Ana: [Normal] tem [Slow] tem
Eric: Next is the word meaning 'a'
Ana: [Normal] uma [Slow] uma
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'pen'
Ana: [Normal] caneta [Slow] caneta
Eric: Listen again to the formal phrase meaning 'Do you have a pen?'
Ana: [Slow] O senhor tem uma caneta? [Normal] O senhor tem uma caneta?
Eric: One way to answer is to say 'Yes, I have one.'
Ana: [Normal] Eu tenho sim.
Eric: First is a word meaning 'I'
Ana: [Normal] eu [Slow] eu
Eric: Next is the word meaning 'have'
Ana: [Normal] tenho [Slow] tenho
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'yes'
Ana: [Normal] sim [Slow] sim
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'Yes, I have one.'
Ana: [Slow] Eu tenho sim. [Normal] Eu tenho sim.
Eric: Finally, here is an informal way to say 'Yes, here you are.'
Ana: [Normal] Tenho sim.
Eric: First is a word meaning 'have'
Ana: [Normal] tenho [Slow] tenho
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'yes'
Ana: [Normal] sim [Slow] sim.
Eric: Listen again to the informal phrase meaning 'Yes, here you are.'
Ana: [Slow] Tenho sim. [Normal] Tenho sim.
Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Ana: If you want to sound really natural when asking if someone has something, because you need to borrow it or you are looking for it in a store, you can use the words Será que. Here’s an example -
Será que você tem um lápis preto? It literally means “I wonder if you have a black pencil?”
You just add Será que at the beginning of the sentence. It makes the whole sentence sound like a question, and it’s a little bit less direct.

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!
