POST
John: Listen again to Eduardo's post.
Ana Clara: Ganhei um ingresso VIP! Alguém por aqui no sambódromo?
John: "I won a VIP ticket! Anyone here in the sambadrome? "
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Ganhei um ingresso VIP! Alguém por aqui no sambódromo? (Regular) Ganhei um ingresso VIP! Alguém por aqui no sambódromo?
John: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "I won a VIP ticket!"
Ana Clara: Ganhei um ingresso VIP!
John: In Brazil, the VIP abbreviation is the same as in English. The difference is that isn't pronounced as three independent letters. Instead, you say it as a whole word; it sounds like “veeh-pee." The whole phrase means "I won a VIP ticket." Listen again- "I won a VIP ticket" is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Ganhei um ingresso VIP! (REGULAR) Ganhei um ingresso VIP!
John: Then comes the phrase - "Someone around, someone here / at the sambadrome."
Ana Clara: Alguém por aqui no sambódromo?
John: The first part...
Ana Clara: Alguém por aqui
John: is a less formal, simplification of
Ana Clara: tem alguém por aqui?
John: meaning "is there, is someone." It's common to omit
Ana Clara: tem
John: meaning "is there."
Ana Clara: Por aqui
John: means "around, close-by." And finally,
Ana Clara: Sambódromo
John: is the sambadrome, where the Carnaval parade takes place. Just like cars have autodromes, samba has the sambadrome. Listen again- "Someone around/ someone here at the sambadrome" is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Alguém por aqui no sambódromo? (REGULAR) Alguém por aqui no sambódromo?
John: All together, it's "I won a VIP ticket! Anyone here in the sambadrome?"
Ana Clara: Ganhei um ingresso VIP! Alguém por aqui no sambódromo?
