POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Braden: This sounded just like a novela!
Thássia: I know just like watching Globo. Except we’re not watching anything, just listening.
(haha)
Braden: So, Thássia, what happened here?
Thássia: Well... (explains)
Braden: and the novelas do the same kind of intrigue?
Thássia: Yep their full of this kind of drama.
Braden: Do novelas do anything else or are they just entertainment?
Thássia: Well, Globo has taken it upon itself to teach viewers too.
Braden: Really? How?
Thássia: Well, each novela is a themed story, usually centered on a current social issue.
Braden: Oh! That’s right! During the immigration debates in the US around 2004, Globo launched a novela called América.
Thássia: Right, it was about a Brazilian girl who illegally immigrates to the US. Each episode was about the difficulties she encounters.
Braden: Generally showing that illegally immigrating to the US was more difficult than it’s worth.
Thássia: Novelas also influence public opinion. Like, when Lula – one of the best Presidents Brazil has ever known – first started gaining popularity, the owners of Globo didn’t like him and cast a Lula-look-alike as a bad guy in a novela.
Braden: Really?
Thássia: This character also has a suprisingly similar life history to the real life Lula.
Braden: So deliberately trying to play on people’s fears.
Thássia: Exactly. This novela was broadcast during the height of his political campaign.
Braden: But Lula did eventually win. And was re-elected and had an unprecidented 80% approval rating for most of his term.
Thássia: That’s true but, Lula ran for president many times. He only won after Globo endorsed him.
Braden: Interesting. Let’s move on to the vocabulary.

VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Braden: Let's have a closer look at the usuage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
Thássia: In this lesson we’ll look at the vocabulary word “grudada” or “grudado” which both mean “stuck to.”
Braden: Right. In the dialogue, Carla used this word because Mayara was holding Roberto arm.
Thássia: In this context, “grudada” has a negative connotation and “grudada” or “grudado” are words used for things that you don’t what where they are. Like gum on your shoe. So she's not speaking positively about Mayara.
Braden: Our next word is “viria” which means “would come” or “would be there.”
Thássia: We’re going to talk more about this in our grammar point.
Braden: That’s right. This is very useful but it does involve a bit of grammar. So, let’s get to it.
Thássia: Last we have “o Roberto”
Braden: That’s right. “O Roberto” literally translates to “the Roberto” which sounds very strange in English. The grammar here is very advanced so we won’t get into why it’s said like this in Portuguese.
Thássia: But a great tip is that when ever you are referring to someone by name, you have to put an article in front of their name.
Braden: Right, so if you have a friend names sara and a friend named maria and you’re talking to Maria about Sara, then you’d say
Thássia: “A sara vai almoçar conosco hoje?” which literally translates to “The Sara lunches with us today?” but it means “Will Sara eat lunch with us today?”
Braden: So whenever you are talking about someone by name, you have to put an article in front of their name. Oh, and the article must match in gender with the person you are talking about. so “a sara” because she is a girl and “o roberto” because he is a guy.

Lesson focus

Thássia: The focus of this lesson is the -ia construction. In the dialogue, we heard the phrase "mas ele confirmou que viria."
Braden: Which we translated as "but he confirmed that he would come."
Thássia: “viria” means “would come” and is a special grammar construction but it’s a very easy and useful one, too.
Braden: The word “viria” is actually the verb “vir” in its infinitive form plus the suffix “-ia.”
Thássia: In this construction the "-ia" means "would."
Braden: For example, the verb "comprar" means to buy. If you put an -ia at the end then it becomes "compraria" which means "would buy."
Thássia: some other examples would be "iria" which means "would go," "estaria" which means "would be," and "comeria" which means "would eat."
Thássia: This is a pattern that can be followed with any verb but there are three verbs that do need special attention.
Braden: Right. The verbs dizer which means "to say," trazer, which means "to bring" and fazer, which means "to do" or "to make."
Thássia: That's right. These three verbs have their own special pattern. You drop the "ze" out of the middle of the word and then add the -ia to the end.
Braden: So, dizer loses it's "ze" and then you push it all together and tack on "-ia" at the end to get "diria" which means "would say."
Thássia: The same thing happens with fazer and trazer. Fazer becomes "faria" which means "would do" or "would make."
Braden: And trazer becomes "traria" to mean "would bring."
