POST
John: Listen again to Eduardo's post.
Ana Clara: Vôlei na praia com o pessoal, a melhor parte das férias!
John: "Volleyball on the beach with the guys, the best part of the vacation!"
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Vôlei na praia com o pessoal, a melhor parte das férias! (Regular) Vôlei na praia com o pessoal, a melhor parte das férias!
John: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Volleyball on the beach with the guys."
Ana Clara: Vôlei na praia com o pessoal
John: The phrase
Ana Clara: Vôlei na praia...
John: ...means "volley on the beach," not to be confused with...
Ana Clara: vôlei de praia
John: which means "beach volleyball," the official sport. When followed by the masculine article o, the noun...
Ana Clara: pessoal
John: always means "the guys, folks, etc." In other situations, it means "personal, private, staff, people." Listen again- "Volleyball on the beach with the guys" is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Vôlei na praia com o pessoal (REGULAR) Vôlei na praia com o pessoal
John: Then comes the phrase - "the best part of the vacation."
Ana Clara: a melhor parte das férias
John: The last word is only used in the plural form. There is no singular form, and the rest of the sentence should follow its plural condition.
John: Listen again- "the best part of the vacation" is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) a melhor parte das férias (REGULAR) a melhor parte das férias
John: All together, it's "Volleyball on the beach with the guys, the best part of the vacation!"
Ana Clara: Vôlei na praia com o pessoal, a melhor parte das férias!
