O que você faz mais? ouvir ou falar?

Which do you do more, listen or speak?

Hi Richard,


Thank you for leaving the comment.


"Eu tenho que ouvir com atenção para poder falar bem." means "I have to listen carefully so I can speak well". In the Portuguese sentence the personal pronoun "eu" ("I") was omitted.


"so" or "in order to" would fit the meaning well. In the last case, the sentence would be "I have to listen carefully in order to speak well."


Hope this helps! Have a great day!


Sincerely,

Cristiane

Just looking at your sentence. I read it as I have to listen with attention for can speak well.


Or I have to listen with attention to can speak well

Or I have to listen with attention in order an speak well


Does para also mean so?

Olá simoziko_2008,


Essa é uma ótima tática!

Acho que sua frase ficaria melhor assim:

"Eu tenho que ouvir com atenção para poder falar bem."


Mas a sua frase não está errada, só é um pouco formal demais!:wink:
