POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Braden: So, we wanted to talk a little bit about Flamengo &Fluminense

Braden: So now a little bit about Fluminense.
Sandra-: Fluminense football club is the only soccer club from Rio de Janeiro that maintains its original English name. Soccer was invented in England so for a long time all soccer clubs in all countries had English names.
Braden: That time has passed but leniency continues with its official English name and in 2012 it celebrated 110 years of existence.
Sandra-: By many, Fluminense is considered the most traditional soccer team in Brazil. Among its many championships, honors, and trophies, in 1949 Fluminense was awarded the Olympic cup which was an honorary cop in recognition of the exemplary organization of the team.

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 telling time in Portuguese
Braden: In the dialogue, we heard the phrase
Sandra-: Vou chegar às nove e meia.
Braden: Which we translated as "I’ll be there at nine thirty."
Sandra-: Telling time in Portuguese is for the most part a series of rote phrases used appropriately. The following phrase patterns will help you begin telling time in Portuguese.
Braden: Que horas são
Sandra-: Que horas são is the Portuguese phrase that you use to ask the question “What time is it?” You'll often have people come up to you in the street in the supermarket on the beach to ask you "Que horas são?" and for that matter you probably need to ask it quite a few times yourself.
Braden: Since you'll be hearing this phrase so often, it's important to know how to respond appropriately. The structure used to respond to this question is
Sandra-: São (number) horas.
Braden: "It's (number) o'clock." So if you wanted to say "It's seven o'clock." you say
Sandra-: São sete horas.
Braden: "It's 7 o'clock."
Sandra-: Now, remember that in Brazil they use military time so to say that is 6 o'clock in the evening, you'd say
Sandra-: São dezoito horas.
Braden: "At's 18 o'clock."
Braden: Also, remember that the numbers 1 and 2 are gender sensitive and since the word "horas" is feminine, the numbers 1 and 2 will need to be in their feminine forms. just for good measure, let's go through all of those. To say "It's one o'clock." you'd say
Sandra-: É uma hora.
Braden: Remember, that this means that it's 1 o'clock in the morning.
Sandra-: São duas horas.
Braden: This is 2 o'clock in the morning. To say, “It's 21 o'clock." you'd say
Sandra-: são vinte e uma horas.
Braden: This is 9 o'clock PM. To say, “It's 22 o'clock."you'd say
Sandra-: São vinte e duas horas.
Barden: This would be 10 o'clock PM
Sandra-: Lets review this lesson.
Braden: Asking and telling the time and Portuguese is one of the most important tasks you need to be able to perform.
Sandra-: Telling Time in Portuguese is a bit more complicated than it is in English because you have to deal with gender and Portuguese,
Braden: And in Brazil you need to deal with military time. For those who aren't used to military time the switch can be a bit disconcerting. What makes it even more fun is that most Brazilians switch back and forth between both modes of telling time.

Hi Jaimie,


Thank you for your comment.


Just a few notes:

Please make sure to use the accent in the accented words, such as:

"mãe" (mother)

"feijão" (beans; 2nd time in the text)

And we use "pouco" as "a little".👍


Keep up practicing and in case of any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


Sincerely,

Cristiane

Eu gosto de assistir futebol americano e comer churrasco. Mas nos Estados Unidos o churrasco é muito diferente. Nós comemos hambúrgueres e cachorros-quentes. Minha mae tambem faz um prato de feijão. Se chama 'yummy beans.' Tem bacon, feijao, e um molho feito com um poco de açúcar e a graxa de bacon. É doce e salgado. É muito gostoso mas não é saudável.
