POST
John: Listen again to Luiza's post.
Ana Clara: Olha o que aconteceu! Ele era novinho...
John: "Look what happened! It was brand new..."
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Olha o que aconteceu! Ele era novinho... (Regular) Olha o que aconteceu! Ele era novinho...
John: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Look what happened!"
Ana Clara: Olha o que aconteceu!
John: It’s a common, informal phrase to call attention to something that happened. Listen again- "Look what happened!" is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Olha o que aconteceu! (REGULAR) Olha o que aconteceu!
John: Then comes the phrase - "It was brand new..."
Ana Clara: Ele era novinho...
John: Remember, in Portuguese there's no equivalent to "it." "It" is always "she" or "he," according to the gender of the noun. In this case, a cellphone is a "he." The diminutive here is used to emphasize the quality; in this case, "new".
Listen again- "It was brand new" is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Ele era novinho... (REGULAR) Ele era novinho...
John: All together, it's "Look what happened! It was brand new..."
Ana Clara: Olha o que aconteceu! Ele era novinho...
