POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Braden: So, Thássia, how important is pronunciation in Portuguese?
Thássia: Very! It is important for you to work hard at pronouncing clearly. DO NOT mumble or talk too softly in order to hide your pronunciation.
Braden: Something that isn’t often talked about at the Absolute Beginner level is how different languages use different muscles to make the sounds.
Thássia: That's right. That's one of the biggest contributors to sounding "foreign." If you don’t exercise the right muscles, you’ll never get rid of your accent.
Braden: Which by the way is completely possible. Listen carefully to native pronunciation and copy how they sound. Speak up and let your teacher help you.

VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Braden: Let's have a closer look at the usuage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
raden: Let's have a closer look at the usage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
Thássia: In this lesson we’re going to look at the expression “beijo.” “Beijo” literally means "kiss."
Braden: In the dialogue Renata used this word as part of her farewell to Roberto.
Thássia: Some regions of Brazil do this more than others but it's fairly common to hear people say "beijo, tchau" at the end of the conversation.
Braden: And the intonation is important. Could you give us some examples of that?
Thássia: Yes it's usually "beijo tchau."
Braden: “fazer aniversário” literally means "make anniversary" but in Brazil this is an expression used with birthdays.
Thássia: "Fazer aniversário" is usually used to refer your acutal birthdate. For example, "Eu vou fazer aniversário no dia 25 de otubro." literally translates to "I will make anniversary on the day 25 of October." But it means My birthday is on the 25th of October."
Braden: related to that the phrase, “Festa de aniversário” is an easy phrase to confuse. Literally “Festa de aniversário” translates to Anniversary party.
Thássia: A quick tip is that most of the time the word aniversário refers to "birthday" and not on anniversaries like wedding anniversaries.
In the dialogue, we translated “Festa de aniversário” as "birthday party."

Lesson focus

Braden: Let's take a look at the grammar point.
Thássia: The focus of this lesson is the verbs “ter” and “vir.” In the dialogue we heard the phrase Tenho um novo filme para assistir e Michael vem para assistir comigo.
Braden: Which translated as "I have a new movie to watch and Michael is coming over to watch it with me.”
Thássia: Here the verb "ter" is used in its conjugated form, "tenho."
Braden: The verb ter means “to have.” Let's go through it's conjugations. How do you say I have
Thássia: Eu tenho
Braden: And you have
Thássia: Você tem
Braden: And he/she/it has
Thássia: ele or ela tem
Braden: And we have
Thássia: nós temos
Braden: and y'all have
Thássia: Vocês têm
Braden: And last they have
Thássia: Eles or elas têm
Braden: And how about a sample sentence?
Thássia: Nós temos muito dinheiro.
Braden: And what does that mean?
Thássia: We have a lot of money.
Braden: Wouldn't that be nice.
haha
Thássia: Now we are going to look at the verb "vir." which means to come.
Braden: Right. we're looking at these two together because they have very similar conjgation patterns, even though they are both irregular.
Thássia: That's true.
Braden: Let's conjugate this one too. How do you say I come
Thássia: Eu venho
Braden: And you come
Thássia: Você vem
Braden: And he/she/it comes
Thássia: ele or ela vem
Braden: And we come
Thássia: nós vemos
Braden: and y'all come
Thássia: Vocês vêm
Braden: And last they come
Thássia: Eles or elas vêm
Braden: And how about some sample sentences for these.
Thássia: Sure, Eu venho às dezoito horas.
Braden: This literally translates to I come at 18 hours but it means I'll be there at 6 p.m.
Thássia: Another sentence would be eles vêm para a festa hoje a noite. Which means "They are coming to the party tonight."
Braden: I have just one tip for the verb vir. For some reason, it's pronounced "vim" when it's in it's infinitive form.
Thássia: That's right. It should be "vir" but hardly anyone says that. We say "vim."

Outro

Braden: That just about does it for today.
Thássia: Listeners, can you understand Portuguese TV shows, movies or songs?
Braden: How about friends and loved ones? conversations in Portuguese?
Thássia: If you want to know what's going on, we have a tool to help.

Olá, Adi


You're right!

Depending on the context, some pronouns are more often used than others. (depends if the conversation is formal or informal)


Keep making comments and participating here😉

I noticed that when the verb conjugations were being listed in the lesson audio, the appropriate pronouns were used with them- but can't the verbs be used without the pronouns?

Olá Stephen,


Thank you for posting.


"Ué" is an interjection, meaning something like "Well..." or "Hmm?"


For example:

"Ué, pensei que tinha colocado a minha bolsa aqui..."

"Hmm? I thought I had put my purse here..."


Hope it helps! In case of any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
