Lesson Transcript

Boa tarde, gente. Todo bem? Paloma here. Welcome to another Top Portuguese words. Today’s topic is Top 10 Phrases You'll Need for a Date.
Um encontro, a date.
1. Você gostaria de sair para jantar comigo? "Would you like to go out to dinner with me?"
You can also just say - Você gostaria de jantar comigo? “Would you like to have dinner with me?”
The answers could be - Claro! “Of course!”
Or - Desculpa, estou ocupada. “I am sorry, I am busy.”
2. Você está livre neste fim de semana? "Are you free this weekend?"
This phrase doesn’t have any romantic meaning. So you can also just ask your friend or your co-worker, Você está livre neste fim de semana? “Are you free this weekend?”
3. Você gostaria de sair comigo? "Would you like to hang out with me?"
Sair means “to leave” but if you say sair com alguém, that would mean, to go out or to hang out with someone.
Você gostaria de sair comigo? “Would you like to hang out or to go out with me?”
4. Quer ir ao cinema comigo hoje à noite? "Would you like to go to the movies with me tonight?"
Here, since we are using the verb querer, “to want,” the answer would be - Eu quero or Eu não quero, “I want” or “I don’t want”.
5. Você está linda. "You look beautiful."
You can also say - Você é linda, “you are beautiful.
But if you just want to compliment a woman because of her outfit, you would say - Você está linda.
6. Posso te ligar amanhã? "Can I call you tomorrow?"
Well, nowadays, people don’t really call anyone. They just send a WhatsApp, in WhatsApp or as most people say in Brazil, um zapzap
Posso te mandar um WhatsApp amanhã? “Can I send you a WhatsApp tomorrow?” It would be a WhatsApp message.
7. Eu te levo pra casa. "I will drive you home."
Eu te levo pra casa actually means, I will take you home but you can kind of understand that the person taking you home will probably take you home by car or by motorcycle. I don’t know, or by bike. Yeah.
8. A que horas a gente se encontra amanhã? "What time shall we meet tomorrow?"
Lá pelas seis, “around six”; or, não muito cedo, “not too early”.
9. A gente pode se encontrar de novo?" Can we meet again?"
So if you really like that person and you think your date is going great, you can just ask her or him - A gente pode se ver de novo? “Can we meet again?”
10. Quer ir pra outro lugar? "Shall we go somewhere else?"
If your date is looking bored, you can say - Você quer ir pra outro lugar? “Shall we go somewhere else?” “Do you want to go somewhere else?”
But, be careful because they might just be bored because of you. I hope not but well. If they say, Ah, é que eu tenho que voltar pra casa... “Oh, it’s just that I need to go back home...” then, it might mean that the person is not very happy around you. I am sorry.
Okay. That’s all for today. Thanks a lot for watching and I hope you enjoyed it. Let us know in the comments what phrases do you use when you go to a date in Brazil or with a Brazilian person. See you next time. Tchau! Até mais!
