POST
John: Listen again to Luiza's post.
Ana Clara: Planejamos ir ao parque. Saindo de casa, começou a chover... que sorte.
John: "We made plans to go to the park. When we were leaving home, it started to rain...just my luck."
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Planejamos ir ao parque. Saindo de casa, começou a chover... que sorte. (Regular) Planejamos ir ao parque. Saindo de casa, começou a chover... que sorte.
John: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "We made plans to go to the park."
Ana Clara: Planejamos ir ao parque.
John: It literally means "we planned on going to the park." The verb
Ana Clara: planejar
John: meaning "to plan," doesn't require a preposition after it. It can be followed by a verb or noun, or even an adjective.
John: Listen again- "We made plans to go to the park." is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Planejamos ir ao parque. (REGULAR) Planejamos ir ao parque.
John: Then comes the phrase - "Leaving home, it started to rain... just my luck."
Ana Clara: Saindo de casa, começou a chover... que sorte.
John: In Portuguese, the verb "rain" never comes with a subject. In this case, this expression...
Ana Clara: que sorte
John: Meaning "just my luck," is sarcastic, meaning bad luck. But it can also be used with a non-sarcastic connotation, when something was really an event of good luck. Depending on the context, it can also mean "just your luck" or anybody's luck - hers or his, theirs, ours, etc. Listen again- "Leaving home, it started to rain... just my luck." is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Saindo de casa, começou a chover... que sorte. (REGULAR) Saindo de casa, começou a chover... que sorte.
John: All together, it's "We made plans to go to the park. When we were leaving home, it started to rain… just my luck."
Ana Clara: Planejamos ir ao parque. Saindo de casa, começou a chover... que sorte.
