Olá, PortuguesePod101 listeners! Do you take taxis often in your hometown? Are they expensive? And are there any special tips we should know if we visit? Leave us a post and tell us about it!

Oi Gerick!


Nowadays there are many options instead of taxis. In Brazil, taxis were very expensive, until the arrival of Uber!


Eu também sempre uso Uber agora.


Abraços,

Paloma

Hello Jaimie,


Thank you for your message.


Just a minor note:

"os táxis"> we use the masculine plural article "os" in front of the masculine plural noun.


Keep up practicing and in case of any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


Sincerely,

Cristiane

Eu moro no Equador. Eu uso as táxis frequentemente. Meu conselho é fazer amizade com os taxistas. Dessa forma, você sempre terá alguém para ligar em caso de emergência.

Olá Richard,


Thank you for posting.


You can use the sentence you suggested, including the verb "ir" (to go), but please note that the sentence in the [Dialogue] is also correct, as it shows a casual way of speaking which you'll commonly hear here in Brazil :)


In case of any questions, please feel free to contact us.


Sincerely,

Cristiane

É verdade. Vamos nesse outro:

Let's in that other . Makes no sense.


What about: vamos ir nesse outro


Let's go in the other

Olá Rogier,


Thank you for posting.


Indeed, "aonde" means "(to) where", for example:

"aonde você vai?"

"where are you going to?"


However, in casual conversations you may listen to native speakers using this word instead of "onde" (where), so the dialogue is showing an informal/daily conversation as example :)


In case of any questions, please feel free to contact us.


Sincerely,

Cristiane

Hi, I have a question about the word "aonde". In the dialogue it's translated as "where", but doesn't it mean "to where", so that it becomes "to where do we take a taxi" instead of "where do we take a taxi" (where do we find one). Muito obrigado!

Olá David,


Obrigada por sua mensagem!

Thank you for your message.


No problem! You could say:

"Você aceita cartão de crédito? Estou sem dinheiro comigo"

"Do you accept credit card? I don't have money (with me, literally)"

or

"Posso pagar com cartão de crédito? É que eu não trouxe dinheiro comigo"

"Can I pay with credit card? I didn't bring (any) money (with me, literally)"


We use these sentences in daily /casual conversations ok


If you have any doubts, please let us know.

The lesson notes don't cover how to tell the driver that you don't have any money and need to pay by card :disappointed:
