Lesson Transcript

Ei, tudo bem? Paloma here. Welcome to Top 10 New Year’s Resolutions.
1. aprender algo novo "learn something new"
Many people that like languages would try to learn a very challenging language like Chinese or Japanese. You could also learn kind of music like Brazilian music, funky, samba.
Esse ano eu vou aprender russo. "This year I'm going to learn Russian."
2. beber menos "drink less"
That’s a very hard promise to keep but you can do that.
Esse ano eu vou beber menos. "This year I'm going to drink less."
3. economizar "save money"
And the best way to save money is to have one goal in mind. For example, I am saving money to buy a new car or a house or traveling, then you just, you know the amount you need. So it would be easier for you to save money. Economizar.
Eu estou economizando para comprar um carro. "I'm saving money to buy a car."
4. emagrecer "lose weight"
The best ways to lose weight is “to exercise,” exercitar-se.
“Join a gym,” começar uma academia.
You could also “eat healthier,” comer saudável.
Para emagrecer eu vou fazer uma dieta e ir na academia duas vezes por semana. "To lose weight, I'm going to start a diet and go to the gym twice a week."
5. ler mais "read more"
Also to read more, I think it’s easier to have a goal in mind. For example, a book a month or two books a month.
Eu preciso ler mais. "I need to read more."
6. me exercitar regularmente "exercise regularly"
This is related to losing weight. So if you want to lose weight and be healthier, you need to exercise. Exercitar-se.
Todas as manhãs eu vou me exercitar no parque. "Every morning I go to exercise in the park."
7. parar de fumar "quit smoking"
Maybe one of the easiest ways to stop smoking is to avoid people that smoke and you know, just try to hang around with more people that don’t smoke. So you can enjoy other things instead of smoking all the time.
O meu vô deveria parar de fumar. "My grandfather should stop smoking."
8. passar mais tempo com a família "spend more time with family"
In this busy world, we are every time having so much things to do that we forget one of the most important things in our lives that are our families. So you should spend more time with your family too.
Nesse final de ano eu vou pra chácara passar mais tempo com a minha família. "This end of the year holidays, I'm going to the farm to spend more time with my family."
9. ter uma alimentação saudável "eat healthy"
You know, everything is related. If you want to be happier, you need to eat healthy, you need to exercise and you will lose weight and maybe you look better for you, for yourself and you’d be happier.
Nessa semana eu vou começar uma dieta e comer mais saudável. "This week I'm going to start a diet and eat healthier."
10. estudar português com a PortuguesePod101.com "to learn Portuguese with PortuguesePod101.com"
That’s a very nice resolution. I hope you did that for this year and for next year too.
Esse ano eu vou aprender muito português com a PortuguesePod101.com. "This year I'm going to learn a lot of Portuguese and study with PortuguesePod101.com."
That’s it for today, the end. Thanks a lot for watching and I hope you enjoyed it. See you next time. Tchau-tchau!
This end of year holidays…
