Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Ana: Always remember that most Portuguese adjectives have masculine and feminine forms. For example, depending on the gender of the person, Japanese can be either japonês or japonesa, and Brazilian could be brasileiro or brasileira. So make sure to conjugate according to the person or object you're referring to.
