Sandra-: Brazil is a country will host the World Cup in 2014. There will be many games in 12 different cities throughout the country.
Braden: Rio de Janeiro has been chosen as the host for the championship game. At least two other games our scheduled to take place in Rio de Janeiro. One game in the eighth finals, one game in the quarterfinals and the championship game.
Sandra-: Currently, the Maracanã, which is the main stadium in Rio de Janeiro, is undergoing a massive remodel. It might be better termed a reconstruction.

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 brasileiro que é brasileiro

Braden: Could you break this down?
Sandra-: (break down)
Braden: So what's our next phrase/word?

Sandra-: (break down)
Braden: So what's our next phrase/word?
Sandra-: In the dialogue, we heard the word “já”
Braden: The literal translation is “already”, “now”

Braden: or Pro seu quarto já! - “Go to your room, now!”
Braden: Could you break this down?
Sandra-: (break down)
Braden: So what's our next phrase/word?

Lesson focus

Braden: So Sandra-, what's the focus of this lesson?
Sandra-: The Focus of This Lesson is the Rhythm of Portuguese
Braden: In the dialogue, we heard the phrase
Sandra-: Eu já vou garantir a minha cadeira no Maracanã.
Braden: Which we translated as "I'm going to guarantee my seat at Maracanã."
Sandra-: In Brazilian Portuguese, words have rhythm just like music. Every word has its own natural rhythm. For example, teclado ("keyboard") has a weak-strong-weak pronunciation pattern, [te-CLA-do]. Changing the rhythm changes the word.For example, saying [te-cla-DO] would carry no meaning for a Brazilian.
Braden: The rhythm of a word is distinguished by one syllable always being stronger than the others. This syllable is called the sílaba tônica or "tonic syllable." By default, the tonic syllable is the second-to-last or penultimate syllable. Identifying the tonic syllable is essential to recognizing words and their meaning.
Sandra-: A change in rhythm can change the meaning of certain words in English too, such as progress vs. progress, or conduct vs. conduct. In Brazilian Portuguese, this change in rhythm changes meaning much more often.
Braden: Rules
Sandra-: The rule states that the tonic syllable is always the penultimate syllable except -
1) If the word has a written accent, the stress will fall on that syllable.
Braden: 2) If the last vowel of the word is -u or -i or if the word ends with the letters -l, -r, or -z, the stress is on the last syllable. for example,
Sandra-: Comi
Braden: which means "I ate." This ends in an "i" so the tonic syllable is at the end.
Sandra-: So how can we determine the rhythm of a new word?
Braden: 1) When you see a new word, look for an accent mark. If it has one, the síliba tônica will be there. For example,
Sandra-: pássaro
Braden: Which means "bird". Can ou hear that tonic syllable on the first syllable?
Sandra-: pássaro (slow)
Sandra-: pássaro
Braden: There's an accent mark there. 2) If it has no accent mark, look to see if the word ends in -i, -u, -r, -l, or -z. If so, it will be stressed on the last syllable. For example,
Sandra-: capaz
Braden: Which means "capable" Can you hear the tonic syllable on the last syllable?
Sandra-: capaz (slow)
Sandra-: capaz
Braden: 3) If it ends in any other letter, the word will be stressed on the penultimate syllable. For example,
Sandra-: natureza
Braden: which means "nature" Can you hear the tonic syllabel on the second to last syllable?
Sandra-: natureza (slow)
Sandra-: natureza
Sandra-: Lets review this lesson.
Braden: The rhythm of Portuguese, while in many instances similar to English, does have significant differences.
Sandra-: Learning to identify the síliba tônica or "tonic syllable" is essential to communicating in Portuguese.If you don't use the correct tonic syllable you could end up saying something that you didn't mean to say.
Braden: One of the most embarrassing examples is from a friend of mine who, while at a restaurant, asked the waiter for “água de cocô" instead of "água de coco."
Sandra-: Wow. I feel really bad for him. The only difference between those 2 is a change in tonic syllable. But the meeting difference is pretty dramatic.
Yeah. Instead of asking for "coconut water," he accidentally asked for "poop water."

Hello Jaimie,


Thanks for posting.


Just a note. We use "Obrigada pela aula." (Thank you for the class.) when spoken by a female speaker ("obrigado" for a male speaker). "pela" (contraction of "por" and the feminine article "a") is used because "aula" (class) is a feminine noun.👍


Hope this helps! For more details, please check out our http://www.PortuguesePod101.com/myteacher

Obrigada por a aula! Agora entendo como pronunciar as palavras bem.

De verdade eu não gosto de futebol. Eu lembro a Copa quando foi no Brasil. Eu acho que Alemanha ganhou, né?

Olá Makiko,


Palavras muito sábias.

Ainda tem muita coisa para melhorar no Brasil, com certeza.

Mas eu sinto que nos últimos anos tivemos um avanço muito positivo.


Espero que as pessoas no governo do Brasil comecem a realizar planos e projetos para o país não apenas para durar 4 anos - o tempo de reeleição, mas para melhorar o país de verdade.

A grande questão é uma atualização da infra-estrutura que o país está em necessidade por algum tempo. O Brasil precisa de trens e aeroportos de alta velocidade com maiores capacidades. Aqueles trazer benefício duração muito mais longa a maior parte da população para além de um momento de projectores.


Para os últimos anos, as situações do Brasil têm vindo a melhorar. No entanto, que impõem um novo desafio para a nação - como distribuir a riqueza recém-encontrada. Este é um grande desafio para um país é tão diversificada e geograficamente vasto como o Brasil. A infra-estrutura robusta tem uma função importante nas entregas das mercadorias e capitais humanos (habilidades e conhecimentos) em todo o país.


'O jogo bonito ", como dizem os brasileiros - o mundo já conheceu, que parte do Brasil. Para que o Brasil para fazer o lema de sua nação, 'Ordem e Progresso' sustentável, ele precisa alcançar para a cima do estereótipo.

Olá Makiko,


Espero que algum dia você supere o seu medo e conheça o meu Brasil varonil! :smile:

Apesar de várias notícias ruins, acho que o país melhorou muito nos últimos anos, e com esse português muito bom que você tem, acho que você não vai ter nenhum problema!


Peça para seus amigos te ajudarem a escolher qual parte do Brasil seria melhor para você conhecer!

Não vou garantir a minha cadeira no Copo do Mundo. Eu tenho medo de ester no Brasil durante do Copo do Mundo. Vai ester imprestável demais e tudo vai ficar muito caro.

Eu gostaria de viajar no Brasil muito, mas tenho medo por que tenho um estereótipo da América do Sul.
