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 semana que vem
Braden: The literal translation is “week that comes”
Sandra-: This is one of 2 ways to say “next week.” the other wayIs by using the phrase “próxima semana.
Braden: for example,
Sandra-: Eu vou para a praia semana que vem.
Braden: “I’m going to the beach next week.”
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 parecia que
Braden: The literal translation is “used to look that”
Sandra-: but it means “looked like,” or “looked as if.”
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 foi bom, viu?
Braden: The literal translation is “Was good saw?”
Sandra-: But it means “it was good, see?” technically, “viu” means “saw.” However, in Portuguese it is often used as a filler, which is how it’s used in this sentence.
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 counting 1-20 things
Braden: In the dialogue, we heard the phrase
Sandra-: Eu nunca vi um time fazer treze gols!
Braden: Which we translated as "I’ve never seen a team make 13 goals."
Sandra-: Counting things in Portuguese is very straightforward. We just follow the number by the item, same as English.
Braden: For example,
Sandra-: uma página
Braden: "one page"
Sandra-: The number uma (one) comes first followed by the item, in this case página.
Braden: To count more than one item in Portuguese just put the number in front and an "s" at the end of the noun. Therefore,
Sandra-: cinco páginas
Braden: "five pages"
Sandra-: As you can see, the process is mostly identical to English.
Braden: Now, there is a slight caveat with one and two. As was explained in Absolute Beginner season 1 lesson 10, Portuguese nouns have gender.
Sandra-: For example, "one or two women" would be uma ou duas mulheres, but "one or two men" would be um ou dois homens.
Braden: It is generally safer to use the masculine form (um or dois) when you don't know the noun' gender.
Sandra-: um, uma
Braden: "one"
Sandra-: dois, duas
Braden: "two"
Sandra-: três
Braden: "three"
Sandra-: quatro
Braden: "four"
Sandra-: cinco
Braden: "five"
Sandra-: seis
Braden: "six"
Sandra-: sete
Braden: "seven"
Sandra-: oito
Braden: "eight"
Sandra-: nove
Braden: "nove"
Sandra-: dez
Braden: "ten"
Sandra-: onze
Braden: "eleven"
Sandra-: doze
Braden: "twelve"
Sandra-: treze
Braden: "thirteen"
Sandra-: quatorze
Braden: "fourteen"
Sandra-: quinze
Braden: "fifteen" In English, we say "twenty-one," "twenty-two," etc.
Sandra-: In Portuguese, the same process used to begin with sixteen, except the word e
Braden: Which means "and" is was inserted between the numbers. For example,
Sandra-: dez e seis
Braden: "ten and six" or "sixteen". Overtime, the numbers dezesseis through dezenove were compressed and became one word. Now these teen numbers are pronounced -
Sandra-: dezesseis
Braden: "sixteen"
Sandra-: dezessete
Braden: "seventeen"
Sandra-: dezoito
Braden: "eighteen
Sandra-: dezenove
Braden: "nineteen"
Sandra-: vinte
Braden: "twenty"
Sandra-: Lets review this lesson.
Braden: Counting things in Portuguese is pretty straightforward. It follows on the exact same pattern is English.
Sandra-: And the rules are so similar that you don't really need to worry about them until you get into bigger numbers.
Braden: You should also remember that gender can affect some numbers. Particularly number 1 and number 2 which have both masculine and feminine forms.

Oi, Christopher Archevald,


No, it doesn't matter. Partida e jogo de futebol have the same meaning.

Thanks for your question!

Does it matter if you use jogo or partida for a football match?

Oi Gosina,


Tudo ótimo, e você?

Obrigada pelo comentário! Também estou torcendo pro Brasil!

And yes, in this case it'd be okay to drop the "na" in the sentence. :wink:


Let us know if you have any questions, or need any help!

Oi, tudo bem?

I love to watch Brazilians play soccer. I'm from Germany/Munich, and we also

have Brazilian players in our team. (FC BAYERN) :smile:

Apropósito, as suas lições são impressionantes.

Só uma pergunta. In the script I read "O curso começa semana que vem"

and one time "O próximo jogo vai ser no Maracanã na semana que vem"

with a "na" in it. Could I drop the na in the second sentence?


Hope Brazil will win the World Cup!!! :heart:

Até mais.

Oi Laderon,


Yes, Brazilians really love futebol. We love our national teams, among the most famous are Corinthians, Palmeiras, São Paulo, Flamengo, Fluminense, Santos... that's a long list!

If you like football, for sure you won't run out of topic to talk with your Brazilian friends.

As for foreign teams, Brazilians also like the famous European teams, especially the ones that have a Brazilian player!


"Assistir" means "to watch", both live, or on a TV.

And "ver" can be used to mean "to see."

But for the sentences:

Você assistiu o jogo ontem?

Você viu o jogo ontem?


and


Eu vou assistir o jogo no Maracanã semana que vem.

Eu vou ver o jogo no Maracanã semana que vem.

Both sentences are fine.


I hope it helps,

Paloma

May you clerify it a little bit? Assistir o jogo - it's like to watch it live?

How to say then: did you watch the game yesterday (like on TV): Viu o jogo? Right?

Course, Brazil is one of the best football country ever! Is it really big in Brazil? Unfortunatelly I've never been to Brazil, only around it (in Spanish speaking world) and everywhere people are crazy about it, I also learnt to follow the local football news in order nor to look ignorant while talking to people, course it is the most common topic for small talks there, I wonder is it true for Brazil?

And what foreign football teams are popular among brazilians?
