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 até mais
Braden: The literal translation is “until more”
Sandra-: but it means, “see you later.” this is a very common And casual way to say goodbye to someone.
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 mesmo horário(.)(?)
Braden: The literal translation is “same hour”
Sandra-: what we wanted to touch on here is the intonation. this phrase is said twiceIn the dialogue once is a question and one says a statement in response to the question but the only difference between the 2 is the intonation.
Braden: so for questions you do a rising intonation at the end.
Sandra-: and for statements you do a flat or falling intonation at the end.
Braden: Could you break this down?
Sandra-: (break down)
Braden: So what's our next phrase/word?
Sandra-: In the dialogue, we heard the word Alô?
Braden: The literal translation is “hello?”
Sandra-: but this word is specifically used for the telephone. when someone calls you on cell phone or on your home phone usually pick it up and say
Braden: Alô?
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 responding to communicated personal feelings
Braden: In the dialogue, we heard the phrase
Sandra-: Eu achei ele bem bacana.
Braden: Which we translated as "I thought it very cool."
The focus of this lesson is responding to communicated personal feelings
Sandra-: In this lesson were going to take a little bit different approach. Instead of giving you a grammatical rule and then exercises to practice the grammar, we'll focus on a few responses you can use when talking about personal feelings.
Braden: In the dialogue we heard Jake and Sarah talking about a book called, “The Alchemist.” It's a phone call so there is a quick greeting and exchange at the beginning and then Jake asks Sarah what she thought of the book.
Sandra-: O que você achou d'o Alquimista'?
Braden: "What did you think about 'The Alchemist?'" To which Sarah responded -
Sandra-: Eu achei ele bem bacana.
Braden: "I thought it very cool.” This is a typical example of a question response situation in Portuguese. The verb used in the question is reused to formulate the answer.
Sandra-: Let's look at the example in the dialogue where Jake says - Estou meio ocupado agora.
Braden: "I'm a bit busy right now."
Sandra-: Ah desculpa! Posso te ligar amanhã?
Braden: "Oh sorry! Can I call you tomorrow?"
Sandra-: Typically, in Brazilian Portuguese, an appropriate response would consist of two parts. First, a type of confirmatory statement that shows empathy for and recognition of the feelings expressed. Second, some kind of question or statement that opens the door for further explanation. Let's look at some examples
Braden: So, someone would express their feelings by saying
Sandra-: Estou tão triste.
Braden: Which translates to "I am so sad." The First part of the response would be the confirmatory response. Some thing like
Sandra-: Ah não.
Braden: Which translates to "Oh no!" This would then be followed by an open door question such as
Sandra-: O que houve?
Braden: Which means "What happened?” or something like
Sandra-: Posso ajudar?
Braden: Which means "Can I help?"
Sandra-: The phrase “O que houve?" is probably one of the most useful phrases in this lesson. Let's review a few times -
Sandra-: "O que houve?"
Braden: "What happened?"
Sandra-: "O que houve?"
Braden: "What happened?"
Sandra-: Lets review this lesson.
Braden: In this lesson, we looked at how to respond appropriately to communicated personal feelings.
Sandra-: Brazilians are very open and expressive about their feelings so situations like these will be very common.
Braden: Review these phrases carefully as they will help you become a better speaker presenting Portuguese, and more importantly, be a better friend.

Eu achei ela bem bacana. Eu achei o blog de Paulo Coelho . Tem uma seção '20 sec leitura.' Tem passagens de leitura curtas. São perfeitas para ler em voz alta.

Oi Makiko,


Bom, vou te dizer dois escritores bem famosos brasileiros. Um se chama Machado de Assis, ele é o maior nome da literatura brasileira.

O outro é o Monteiro Lobato. Suas obras infantis são bem famosas, especialmente o "Sítio do Pica-pau Amarelo."


Livros no Brasil são bem caros se comparados a outros países. Os livros digitais aos poucos estão se tornando mais comuns.

Mas no Brasil não se tem o costume de ler tanto quanto em outros países, como o Japão, por exemplo.

Eu não posso dizer que eu sei que outros escritores brasileiros. Eu sei que alguns músicos e atores / atrizes brasileiros.


Vou falar com a minha professora de português. Ela lê muito. Talvez ela tem algumas recomendações sobre quais livros brasileiros para ler.

Olá Makiko,


Você não conhecia o Paulo Coelho? Ele é um dos escritores brasileiros mais famosos no exterior :smile:

É bom saber que você está lendo o seu livro. Livros no Brasil são caros, talvez seja por isso que a versão em português estava mais cara. :cry:


Você conhece algum outro escritor brasileiro?

Eu estou envergonhada que não ter ouvido o nome de Paulo Coelho, ou seus escritos antes.


Eu procurei no Amazon.com e comprei o livro "o alquimista". Estou lendo o em Inglês. Eu tentei encontrar a versão em português, mas era muito mais caro do que alguns dólares que eu paied para a versão em Inglês.


I am embarrased for not having heard of who Paulo coelho is or his writings. I went to Amazon.com and bought the book, 'The Alchemist'. I am reading it in English. I tried to find the book in portuguese but what I could find on Amazon.com were far more expensive than English version.
