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 bossa nova, nossa!
Braden: The literal translation is “bossa nova, wow!”
Sandra-: What were really focusing on here is the word nossa. We’ve covered it in every absolute beginner season because of such a central part of how Brazil and express themselves. it refers to Mary the mother of Jesus in the phrase nossa senhora mãe de Jesus. - “our Lady mother of Jesus.”
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 todo mundo
Braden: The literal translation is “all world”
Sandra-: but it means “ Everybody.” This is The same Brazilian idiom we looked at in lesson 3.
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 nem todos
Braden: The literal translation is “not even all”
Sandra-: But it could also be translated as “not even everyone,” “not all of them,” or even certain circumstances “not exactly.”
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 the verb gostar de
Braden: In the dialogue, we heard the phrase
Sandra-: Eu gosto tanto desse ritmo!
Braden: Which we translated as "I like this rhythm so much!"
Sandra-: The verb gostar de in Portuguese means "to like" in English.
Braden: Technically, gostar is the verb and de is a preposition but as a rule the preposition de is always connected to the verb gostar, so it's a good idea to think of them as one unit. For example,
Sandra-: Ele gosta de roupa cara.
Braden: "He likes expensive clothing."
Sandra-: Sometimes, the preposition de can be hidden in a contraction.
Braden: For example, in the dialogue we heard the phrase -
Sandra-: E todos os brasileiros gostam da bossa nova?
Braden: Which we translated as "And do all Brazilians like bossa nova?"
Sandra-: Here the preposition de has contracted with the article a to make da.
Braden: Gostar a regular -ar verb which means it follows the congregation for regular -ar verbs. So, to say “I like,” you say -
Sandra-: Eu gosto de
Braden: To say, “you like,” you say -
Sandra-: você gosta de
Braden: To say, “he likes,” you say
Sandra-: ele gosta de
Braden: To say, “she likes,” you say
Sandra-: ela gosta de
Braden: To say, “we like,” you'd say -
Sandra-: nós gostamos de
Braden: To say, “you all like,” you'd say -
Sandra-: vocês gostam de
Braden: To say, “they like,” you say -
Sandra-: eles gostam de
Braden: And last, when speaking about a group composed of only women, to say, “they like,” you say -
Sandra-: elas gostam de
Braden: And so just to finish off, sometimes certain words can be placed in between the verb gostar and the preposition de. Not just any word, but one particular class of words, called intensifiers, can be inserted here. For example, in the dialogue where the phrase
Sandra-: Eu gosto tanto desse ritmo!
Braden: Which we translated as "I like this rhythm so much!" Hear the word tanto is inserted in between the verb gosto and the preposition de, which is been contracted with the word esse. Tanto is an intensifier, and just like muito, can be appropriately inserted in between the verb gostar and the preposition de.
Sandra-: Lets review this lesson.
Braden: The verb gostar de is an essential verb to know if you ever want to express that you liked anything in Portuguese. And considering how could Brazilian food is you're probably going to be using this verb a lot.
Sandra-: It's also an -ar verb and we went through all of the present tense conjugations for gostar and this same contribution pattern can be applied to any regular -ar verb.

I had bossa nova as an option for background music on a musical keyboard when I was little, but never had any idea what it was. Now, thanks to Portuguese Pod, I finally know...

Olá Makiko,


É verdade. Eu também adoro Bossa Nova.


"Garota de Ipanema" é considerada uma das músicas mais tocadas em todo o mundo. E são mais de 50 anos de história.

Você sabe quem foi a inspiração para a música "Garota de Ipanema"? O nome dela é Helô Pinheiro.
