VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Braden: Let's have a closer look at the usuage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
Braden: Let's take a closer look at some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
Sandra-: In the dialogue, we heard the phrase gosto sim
Braden: The literal translation is “like yes”
Sandra-: but it means, “yes I like it.” remember that in Portuguese, Pronouns can often be dropped which is why there is no eu in the sentence.
Braden: and this is another example ofwhat we talked about in lesson 6 where the full phrase is “Sim eu gosto sim.” but it’s been shortened to just, “gosto sim.”for convenience.
Braden: Could you break this down?
Sandra-: (break down)
Braden: So what's our next phrase/word?
Sandra-: In the dialogue, we heard the phrase não tenho coordenacão...não
Braden: The literal translation is “no have coordination... No”
Sandra-: but it means, “I am not coordinated.” In Portuguese you say that you “have coordination” not that you “are coordinated.”
Braden: Could you break this down?
Sandra-: (break down)
Braden: So what's our next phrase/word?
Sandra-: In the dialogue, we heard the phrases ter que vs. ter de
Braden: The literal translation is “to have that versus to have of”
Sandra-: but they both mean, “ have to.” we talked about this in lesson 7 and just wanted to touch on it again.
Braden: the most correct way To say “have to” is ter de. but you will hear many people say “ter que.” both are acceptable.
Braden: Could you break this down?
Sandra-: (break down)
Braden: So what's our next phrase/word?
Sandra-: In the dialogue, we heard the words ensaiar vs. treinar
Braden: Both of these words translate to “to practice.”
Sandra-: however, ensaiar is used more for the arts almost in the sense of the rehearsal but not quite so final. Treinar,On the other hand, used more for sports,Like soccer practice.
Braden: Could you break this down?
Sandra-: (break down)
Braden: Let's take a look at the grammar point.

Lesson focus

Braden: So Sandra-, what's the focus of this lesson?
Sandra-: The focus of this lesson is expressing ownership using the verb ter
Braden: In the dialogue, we heard the phrase
Sandra-: Uma amiga minha tem uma escola de samba.
Braden: Which we translated as "A friend of mine has a samba school."
Sandra-: Let's look at the verb ter
Braden: The verb ter means “to have.” and in the sentence, it is conjugated to the 3rd person singular form, tem.
Sandra-: Just like the verb “to have” in English, "ter" in Portuguese is one of the standard ways to show possession and express ownership.
Braden: Luckily for us ter and “to have” have almost the exact same meanings and uses. So let's look at the contributions. Ter conjugates in the singular as follows -
Sandra-: tenho
Braden: I have
Sandra-: tens
Braden: thou hast
Sandra-: tem
Braden: "he/she/it has" or "you have." Ter conjugates in the plural as follows,
Sandra-: temos
Braden: we have
Sandra-: tendes
Braden: ye have
Sandra-: têm
Braden: They have or y'all have. Just a quick note, there is no pronunciation difference between the singular form of tem and the plural form of têm. But they are spelled differently, kind of.
Sandra-: Yes, the singular form is spelled T–E–M. The plural form is also spelled, T–E–M. the difference is that the plural form has a circumflex accent over the "E."
Braden: So, could you give us an sample sentences?
Sandra-: Sure. let students same order as the verb conjugation.
Braden: We're going to have to leave out the "tu" and "vós" forms though.
Sandra-: That's fine. so, here we go - Eu tenho dois irmãos.
Braden: which translates to “I have two brothers.”
Sandra-: Ele tem pouco tempo.
Braden: which translates to "He has little time."
Sandra-: Nós temos muito dinheiro.
Braden: which translates to “We have a lot of money.”
Sandra-: Eles têm muitos amigos.
Braden: which translates to “They have a lot of friends.”
Sandra-: Lets review this lesson.
Braden: The verb ter is one of the most frequently used verbs in Portuguese.
Sandra-: It has many meanings and uses and one of the most common ones is to express ownership.

Eu gosto de dançar com meu marido mas eu não tenho coordenação. Ele é de equador e nos dançamos salsa, bachata, e reggaeton. Cumbia também é muito popular no Equador mas meu marido não gosta de cumbia. E você? O que você gosta de dançar?

Que legal Makiko,


É um incentivo a mais para aprender português.

Você consegue distinguir os diferentes sotaques em português? (Can you distinguish different accents in Portuguese?)

Você já experimentou pão de queijo de Minas Gerais?

Sim, treino Capoeira. É meu razão de aprender o português. Há dois anos eu treinei. Meu Mestre é de Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais. Ele não fala muito inglês. Na cidade que eu moro tem muitas imigrantes brasileiros. Meus colegas de Capoeira são quase tudo mundo brasileiros.

Ainda não. Mas, tentei Forró algumas vezes. Meu Mestre de Capoeira conhece um professor de Forró. Paro por tempo indeterminado porque meu marido não gosta de dançar comigo.
