Braden: I apologize for the inconvenience. Your document will be ready tomorrow morning.
Nicolle: Então, tá. Obrigada pela atenção.

POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Braden: (ask --- something about the dialogue-Peter always does a little review about the previous lessons. explain what you are thinking about the storyline in the lesson, so the students can follow and participate - don't make them guess.)
---: response
Braden: Brazilians have a number of registration cards they use for a variety of purposes.
---: The main one is the RG which is a registry number given to every Brazilian citizen.
Braden: It's similar to a Social Security Number but less ubiquitos.
---: Then you have the CPF which is less meaningful, as it can be given to anyone anywhere in the world, Brazilian or not but it's a bit more practical as they are required for cell phone contracts, internet service, part of rental agreements and bank accounts.
Braden: And pretty any time you need your RG you need your CPF too right? but not vice versa
---: Right.
Braden: (put story about getting your bank account transferred to Brazil?)

VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Braden: Let's have a closer look at the usuage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
---: The first word we'll look at is quais.
Braden: quais is the plural form of the word qual. Qual is the Portuguese word for "which" as is "Which documents?"
---: In Portuguese however, when qual is used with a plural noun (like documents) it needs to be pluralized to agree in number with the noun. That's why it's "quais documentos" and not "qual documentos."
Braden: Could you break this down?
---: (break down)
Braden: what's our next word?
---: The next word we'll look at is constrangimento
Braden: constrangimento means "an uncomfortable or embarrassing situation." I've always felt this word was a cognate with constrain but I spend some time researching and I couldn't find any credible source for that.
Braden: Could you break this down?
---: (break down)
Braden: what's our next word?
---: The next word we'll look at is Documentos.
Braden: As we mentioned earlier, Brazilians need a lot of documents.
---: The Brazilian Portuguese phrase 'seus documentos' means "your official documents," such as your CPF, RG, and depending on your stage in life your marriage certificate, birth certificate, school record, etc.
Braden: Could you break this down?
---: (break down)

Lesson focus

Braden: So ---, what's the focus of this lesson?
---: The focus of this lesson is the formal future tense. In the dialogue, we heard the phrase Secretária - Seu documento estará pronto amanhã pela manhã.
Braden: Which we translated as "Secretária - Your document will be ready tomorrow morning." This phrase uses the formal future tense.
---: When you use the future tense with an adverb of item that refers to the present (such as agora), or when the present moment is just implied, the future tense takes on a conjectural meaning.
Braden: But when the future tense is used in a future context (for example, with an adverb such as amanhã or o ano que vem) its meaning is just future.
---: Because the ir- infinitive construction is so commonly used (vou cantar, vamos sair, vão se machucar) and because the present tense can often be used with a future meaning (Amanhã assisto a todas as aulas. no próximo ano me caso com José), and because it's just so simple, the formal future tense hasn't been emphasised until now.
Braden: Could you give us a sample sentence?
---: Sure. Camilo estuda muito e será um bom advogado. - Os estudantes saberão a lição antes do exame. - Vocês viajarão pelo Brasil no verão.
Braden: and we have several more examples in the PDF.
---: It's also important to remember that Object pronouns will precede the future forms
Braden: for example?
---: Eu lhe escreverei durante o verão. - Elas o prepararão hoje. - Vocês a verão quando quiserem. Nós os escutaremos se pudermos.
Braden: The only irregular future forms are fazer, dizer, and trazer. The irregular feature is that the -ze- is lost, so they are easy to learn.
---: That's right. they just become fará, trará, and dirá.
Braden: On quick Note - colloquial Portuguese prefers the ir + infinitive construction. So on to the conjecture section. In English, we express conjecture by using a number of devices. For example -
Braden: It must be ten o'clock.
Braden: José probably has his new car by now.
Braden: Do you supopse Maria plays the guitar?
---: But Portuguese uses the future tense.
Braden: And All endings are the same, no matter if it is an -ar, -er, -ir verb, or even pôr.
---: terei - i probably have
---: terá - you probably have
---: terá - he/she probably has
---: teremos - we probably have
---: terão - y'all probably have
---: terão - they probably have
Braden: So to give a feeling of conjucture, you use the formal future tense. The key to distinguish is that when you use the future tense with an adverb of time that refers to the "present" (such as agora), or when the present moment is just implied, the future tense takes on a conjectural meaning.
---: Serão dez horas agora. - it must be ten o'clock now.
---: José já terá o seu carro novo. - José probably has his new car by now.
---: Maria tocará violão? - Do you suppose Maria plays the guitar?

Olá Garcia,


Thank you for your message.


"lhe" is an indirect object pronoun that refers to the 3rd. person of speach / singular.

In the sentence you wrote, "Eu lhe escreverei..." (I'll write to you.) the verb requires an indirect object, as we write (something) to someone.

"lhes" refers to the 3rd. person /plural, so we'd have: "Eu lhes escreverei..." (I'll write to them.)


"o" is a direct masculine object pronoun and we use it in cases when the verb requires a direct object. For example:

"Eu não o vi hoje." (I didn't see him today.)

"a" is the feminine version, "Eu não a vi hoje." (I didn't see her today).


In these lessons you can find a detailed explanation of the indirect object pronouns:

No vocabulário, acho que 'solicitar' implica 'to solicit' e não 'to solicite', não é?

Hi Matt,


Thank you for your positive feedback!


Just a minor note:

The pronoun that preceeds the noun "estação" must have a feminine gender (required by the feminine singular word "estação"), therefore we'd use "outra" (another), okay?


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

Half of the vocabulary words have audio in a language other than Portuguese. Can this be fixed?

Oi Ryan,


Thank you for the comment!

Just a quick tip: "lições" is a feminine noun, so the sentence should be "As lições foram ótimas!"


Did you already start the Upper Intermediate level?

Please let us know if you have any questions about Portuguese!


Atenciosamente,
