POST
John: Listen again to Luiza's post.
Ana Clara: Trabalhar, trabalhar e trabalhar... Cadê o fim de semana?
John: "Work, work, and work... where's the weekend?"
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Trabalhar, trabalhar e trabalhar... Cadê o fim de semana? (Regular) Trabalhar, trabalhar e trabalhar... Cadê o fim de semana?
John: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Work, work, and work...."
Ana Clara: Trabalhar, trabalhar e trabalhar...
John: Although, in English, the more common use of "work" is as a noun, in Portuguese, you use it as an infinitive verb. Literally, the translation would be "to work, to work, and to work." Listen again- "Work, work, and work..." is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Trabalhar, trabalhar e trabalhar... (REGULAR) Trabalhar, trabalhar e trabalhar...
John: Then comes the phrase - "Where is the weekend?"
Ana Clara: Cadê o fim de semana?
John: The first word in the question,
Ana Clara: Cadê
John: meaning "where (is it)," is an informal expression. The more formal equivalent would be...
Ana Clara: onde está
John: Which has the same meaning. This expression is very common throughout Brazil. Listen again- "Where is the weekend?" is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Cadê o fim de semana? (REGULAR) Cadê o fim de semana?
John: All together, it's "Work, work, and work... where's the weekend?"
Ana Clara: Trabalhar, trabalhar e trabalhar... Cadê o fim de semana?
