Lesson Transcript

Oi, Meu nome é Paloma.
Hi everybody! I’m Paloma.
Welcome to PortuguesePod101.com’s Português em três minutos. The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Portuguese.
In the last lesson, we learned how to introduce ourselves in Portuguese. As good manners are must everywhere, today we are going to learn how to thank people.
Vocês estão prontos? Are you ready? Vamos começar, then let’s start!
There are several ways to thank someone. Let's start with the most common phrase:
[slowly] Obrigado.
Obrigado means “thank you”.
To say "thank you very much," you just need to add muito in the beginning:
Muito obrigado.
[slowly] Muito obrigado.
Muito means "a lot." So Muito obrigado is like saying “Thank you very much."
In the last lesson we saw that Portuguese words may vary according to gender. You say obrigado if you are a man. If you are a woman, you should say obrigada.
[slowly] obrigada.
When someone thanks you, how should you answer? There are a few things you can say.
The first is:
De nada.
[slowly] De nada.
This means "It’s nothing." You're telling the person that it’s nothing worth thanking you for.
There is another phrase that's often used to mean "You're welcome" in Portuguese:
It means “welcome” in English, but it’s not used as often as De nada.
Time for another quiz. What do you say in these situations?
Muito obrigada.
Muito obrigado.
De nada.
Now it’s time for Paloma’s point.
In Brazil we sometimes cut words when we are talking. For example, it’s very common to hear brigado instead of obrigado.
Don’t get confused between brigado that means “fight” and brigado “thank you”!
Do you know what Tudo bem means? In our next lesson you’ll learn this and more other greetings in Portuguese! Até a próxima!
