Lesson Transcript

Hi everyone! I’m Alisha.
Welcome to Conversational Phrases!
We’ve found that the best way to learn a language is to speak it from day one! And the best way to start speaking is to learn phrases that you’ll use in real conversations.
In this lesson, we’ll learn conversational phrases to answer the question “What's the matter?” After watching this video, you’ll be able to make complaints and ask someone else if they’re having any issues.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Está tudo bem?
O escritório está quente.
Once more with the English translation.
Está tudo bem?
“What's the matter?”
O escritório está quente.
“The office is hot.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “What's the matter?”
That's: Está tudo bem?
Listen to it again: Está tudo bem?, Está tudo bem?
“What's the matter?”
This Portuguese sentence literally translates into "Is everything alright?,” but it means “What's the matter?” in English.
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
O escritório está {adjective}.
“The office is {adjective}.”
For example:
“The office is hot.”
O escritório está quente., O escritório está quente.
