Oi Janice,


Thanks for the comment.

Yes, probably that's an expression from Northeastern Brazil (this series was recorded there).


I'm from São Paulo. I could use "ela foi lá pra cima" if, for example, I'm inside a two-story house, and a woman goes upstairs.

In the case a person left the house, I'd say "ela saiu" or "ela foi ~(somewhere)" as "ela foi na padaria"


I hope it helps.

Hello,

I have a Brazilian friend and he says that the expression "la pra cima" is never used, he's never heard of it, and it sounds weird (as it does in English). He would instead simply say "Ela saiu". He is from southern Brazil. Perhaps, is this a northeastern expression?

Oi Franko,


In the lesson notes and Main Audio they explain about the expression "lá pra cima" or "lá pra baixo" literally means "up" or "down", but it would be more naturally translated as "somewhere (in a higher place or in a lower place)" in English.


I hope it helps. For further explanation, please check the main audio and PDF Lesson notes.

And let us know if there's anything still unclear for you.

Help !! I'm confused,

in the dialogue it says

Não, ela não está. Ela foi lá pra cima.

No she isn't. She went somewhere.

should it not be Não, ela não é. ela foi em algum lugar.

as the word cima means summit or top
