Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
In this lesson we’re going to continue with counting from 11 to 100.
GRAMMAR POINT
Let’s just quickly review 0-10.
0 zero
1 um
uma if the thing you’re counting is feminine
next we have:
2 dois for masculine words and
duas for feminine
3 três
4 quatro
5 cinco
6 seis
7 sete
8 oito
9 nove
10 dez
Now let’s continue with 11 to 20.
11 onze
(slow) on-ze
onze
12 doze
(slow) doze
doze
13 treze
(slow) tre-ze
treze
14 quatorze
(slow) qua-tor-ze
quatorze
15 quinze
(slow) quin-ze
quinze
16 dezesseis
(slow) de-zes-seis
dezeseis
17 dezessete
(slow) de-zes-sete
dezesete
18 dezoito
(slow) de-zoi-to
dezoito.
19 dezenove
(slow) de-ze-no-ve
dezenove
20 vinte
(slow) vin-te
vinte
You probably noticed that from number sixteen to nineteen, the beginning of the words sound similar.
dezesseis derives from three words. The first one is dez which means “ten”.
(slow) dez.
dez.
The second word is e which means "and"
(slow) e.
e.
The third word is seis which means "six"
(slow) Seis.
Seis.
If you were to break the word apart, it would be "ten and six" which means "sixteen."
After that, we have the numbers for twenty, thirty, forty, and so on. Let's look at 20 first.
20 vinte
(slow) vin-te
vinte
30 trinta
(slow) trin-ta
tinta
40 quarenta
(slow) qua-ren-ta
quarenta
50 cinquenta
(slow) cin-quen-ta
cinquenta
60 sessenta
(slow) ses-sen-ta
sessenta
70 setenta
(slow) se-ten-ta
setenta
80 oitenta
(slow) oi-ten-ta
oitenta
90 noventa
(slow) no-ven-ta
noventa
Finally, we have cem, which is “one hundred.”
100 cem
(slow) cem
cem
Now that we learned the tens, let’s learn counting the numbers that are in between.
21 sounds like this: vinte e um.
vinte means twenty.
E means “and”.
Next we have um, which means one.
The whole number is vinte e um, literally translated as “twenty and one”.
Let’s make a sentence using this number now.
“I am 21 years old.”
Eu tenho vinte e um anos.
Let’s break it down:
(slow) Eu te-nho vin-te e um a-nos.
Once again:
Eu tenho vinte e um anos.
First we have eu which means "I".
Next we have tenho meaning “have”
(slow) ten-ho
tenho
The next word, vinte e um, as we learned before, means “twenty-one.”
The last word, anos, means "years."
(slow) a-nos
anos
Altogether, we have
Eu tenho vinte e um anos.
Let’s try making the Portuguese word for “fifty–three.” “Fifty” is cinquenta and “three” is três. Putting them together, we have cinquenta e três or “fifty-three.”
Let’s break it down:
(slow) cin-quen-ta e três.
And once more:
cinquenta e três.
Let’s use cinquenta e três to say “I have fifty-three euros”:
Eu tenho cinquenta e três euros.
Let’s break that down:
(slow) Eu te-nho cin-quen-ta e três eu-ros.
And at natural speed:
Eu tenho cinquenta e três euros.
Eu tenho is translated as “I have”.
We just learned that cinquenta e três means “fifty-three.”
The next word, euros, literally translates to “euros.”
(slow) eu-ros
euros
The whole sentence, then, is
Eu tenho cinquenta e três euros.

Oi Ahmed,


Que ótimo, obrigada pela mensagem!

Estamos muito feliz em te ajudar a melhorar o seu português!

Acho muito legal você estar aprendendo os dois sotaques (brasileiro e de Portugal), porque então você vai poder entender e se comunicar com qualquer lusófono (pessoa que fala português) em qualquer lugar!


Conte conosco para ajudá-lo na sua jornada de aprendizado!

Abraços,

Paloma

Oi Ahmed,


Muito bom! Parabéns!

The way you say the "s" in "anos" sounds like Rio de Janeiro's accent or European accent :wink:

That's very nice!

Keep up the great work!
