POST
John: Listen again to Eduardo's post.
Ana Clara: Nunca fui tão feliz na vida. Te amo, Luiza.
John: "I've never been so happy. I love you, Luiza."
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Nunca fui tão feliz na vida. Te amo, Luiza. (Regular) Nunca fui tão feliz na vida. Te amo, Luiza.
John: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "I've never been so happy."
Ana Clara: Nunca fui tão feliz na vida.
John: It's extremely common to omit the subject "I" in Portuguese. The subjects are typically implied and are treated like explicit ones - For example,
Ana Clara: nunca fui
John: could also be...
Ana Clara: eu nunca fui
John: meaning "I've never been.” Both are correct.
Ana Clara: tão feliz na vida
John: means "so happy in my life." Listen again- "I've never been so happy." is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Nunca fui tão feliz na vida. (REGULAR) Nunca fui tão feliz na vida.
John: Then comes the phrase - "I love you, Luiza."
Ana Clara: Te amo, Luiza.
John: "I love you." Again, this is a case where the subject is implicit. Listen again- "I love you, Luiza." is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Te amo, Luiza. (REGULAR) Te amo, Luiza.
John: All together, it's "I've never been so happy. I love you, Luiza."
Ana Clara: Nunca fui tão feliz na vida. Te amo, Luiza.

John: His girlfriend, Luiza, uses an expression meaning - "I love you too, honey!"
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Também te amo, meu amor! (REGULAR) Também te amo, meu amor!

John: Use this expression to show you are feeling touched.
John: His girlfriend's high school friend, Helena, uses an expression meaning - "Finally! I was about to chide you."
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Finalmente! Já ia puxar a sua orelha. (REGULAR) Finalmente! Já ia puxar a sua orelha.
