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, you’ll learn conversational phrases to answer the question, "What are you doing during the holiday?" After watching this video, you’ll be able to talk about your holiday plans.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
O que você vai fazer no Carnaval?
Estou planejando ir para a praia.
Once more with the English translation.
O que você vai fazer no Carnaval?
“What are you doing for Carnival?”
Estou planejando ir para a praia.
“I'm planning to go to the beach.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “How's your mother?”
That's: O que você vai fazer no Carnaval?
Listen to it again: O que você vai fazer no Carnaval?, O que você vai fazer no Carnaval?
This Portuguese sentence literally translates as “What you will do on Carnaval?” But it means “What are you doing for Carnival?”.
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
Estou planejando [plan].
This Portuguese sentence literally translates as “Am planning [plan].” But it means
“I’m planning to [plan].”.
For example:
“I'm planning to go to the beach.”
Estou planejando ir para a praia., Estou planejando ir para a praia.
