Lesson Transcript

Oi, gente. Tudo bem? Paloma here. Welcome to Top Portuguese Words. Today, we are going to talk about What are Your Top 10 Language Learning Goals for the Year?
1. Eu vou terminar três séries no PortuguesePod101.com. "I'll finish three series on PortuguesePod101.com."
Each series at PortuguesePod101.com is only 25 lessons long. So if you surely can finish three series in a year, I know you can do better actually.
2. Eu vou terminar de ler cinco livros em português. "I'll finish reading five books in Portuguese."
If you don’t really like reading, you can kind of cheat a little bit and read Brazilian gibis or comic books. The most famous one is Turma da Monica.
3. Vou passar na minha prova de português. "I'll pass my Portuguese test."
If you have premium subscription, you can even ask our teachers to help you out.
4. Eu quero entender um filme em português sem legendas. "I want to understand a movie in Portuguese without subtitles."
Don’t confuse legenda and English legends. Legenda is subtitle and legend is lenda.
5. Vou cantar minhas músicas brasileiras favoritas sem ler. "I'll sing my favorite Brazilian songs without reading."
Qual é sua música brasileira favorita? “What is your favorite Brazilian song?”
Let us know in the comments and try to sing it without reading.
6. Vou ficar craque em vocabulário português decorando 5 palavras por dia. "I'll master Portuguese vocabulary by memorizing 5 words a day."
Five words a day is just so few but in a year, there would be so many new vocabulary in Portuguese you will learn and you become a craque.
Craque is someone that is very good at something.
For example, Neymar é um craque do futebol, or “Neymar is an expert in soccer.”
7. Vou aprender direitinho todos os tempos verbais em português. "I'll learn all the verb tenses in Portuguese very well."
You have to learn direitinho, very well. So you can speak Portuguese like a native. Since Portuguese has so many verb conjugations. Yeah, it’s very good to spend your time learning Portuguese conjugations.
8. Vou mandar 10 cartões postais em português para os meus amigos brasileiros. "I'll send 10 postcards in Portuguese to my Brazilian friends."
It’s not common in Brazil to send postcards but I am sure your Brazilian friend will be so happy to receive a postcard from you that he might write back to you.
9. Eu vou decorar 5 músicas em português. "I'll memorize 5 songs in Portuguese."
Decorar means memorize. You can also use memorizar. But we are more used to say decorar or saber de cor or to know by heart.
10. Vou aprender uma frase nova por dia em português. "I'll learn a new phrase per day in Portuguese."
Do you know where you can post your sentence with us? You can post it here. So we can check it and let you know if it’s correct or not.
Fim! The end. That’s all for today. Thanks a lot for watching and I hope you enjoyed it. Let us know in the comments what are your goals for learning Portuguese this year. Até a próxima, bye!

Just a few notes:

"Adoro escutar músicas..." (I love listening to songs...);

"Caetano Veloso" is the name of the artist. 👍
