Lesson Transcript

Hi, guys! Paloma here! Welcome to Top 10 Portuguese Lines You Need for Introducing Yourself in Portuguese!
1. Estou aprendendo português com a PortuguesePod101.com "I’m learning Portuguese at PortuguesePod101.com"
If someone asks you “How are you learning Portuguese?” Como você está estudando português?
You can say, Estou aprendendo português com a PortuguesePod101.com.
2. Estou aprendendo português faz um ano. "I’ve been learning Portuguese for a year."
This is the answer to the question, Faz quanto tempo que você estuda português? "How long have you been studying Portuguese?”
3. Eu gosto de ouvir música. "I enjoy listening to music."
So if someone asks you, O que você gosta de fazer? "What do you enjoy?” or “What do you like to do?”
You can say, Eu gosto de ouvir música.
4. Eu moro em São Paulo. "I live in São Paulo."
This is the answer to the question, Onde você mora? "Where do you live?”
You can answer by saying the country you live in, or the city you live in. If it’s very famous, for example,
Eu moro em Tóquio. “I live in Tokyo.” Or
Eu moro em Nova Iorque. I live in New York."
5. Eu sou do Brasil. "I’m from Brazil."
If someone asks you, De onde você é? "Where are you from?”
You can say, Eu sou do Brasil; or Eu sou brasileira. “I’m Brazilian.”
6. Eu sou professor. "I’m a teacher."
Here you’re saying your job, so you could say, Eu sou professor. "I'm a teacher”; or Eu sou estudante. “I'm a student."
7. Eu tenho 27 anos. "I’m 27 years old."
People might ask your age, so you answer with the verb ‘ter’, “to have” in Portuguese.
Eu tenho 27 anos. "I am 27 years old."
8. O meu nome é Miguel. "My name is Miguel."
This phrase works both for a woman or a man, so I could say
O meu nome é Paloma. "My name is Paloma.”
As a man could say, O meu nome é Miguel.
9. Oi, prazer. "Hi, nice to meet you."
This is a way to introduce yourself very casually, so you can just shake hands with the person and say Oi, prazer; or just give her a kiss, you could also say
Oi, meu nome é Paloma. Prazer.
10. Um dos meus hobbies é ler. "One of my hobbies is reading."
Usually when you’re meeting someone new, they may ask you "What’s your hobby?”
You could say Um dos meus hobbies é ler; or Um dos meus hobbies é ver filmes. “One of my hobbies is watching movies.”
or even Um dos meus hobbies é viajar, “one of my hobbies is traveling.”
