Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
In this lesson, you’ll learn about a place crucial to your travels in this modern age: the Internet café! Normally, you find Internet cafés in the big main cities. In some hotels and cafés, Wi-Fi is part of the service. That means you may need a password in order to connect. You could ask “Excuse me, what is the password to use the Internet?”
GRAMMAR POINT
Com licença, qual é a senha para usar a internet? is the question that will help you out.
Let’s break it down:
(slow) Com li-cen-ça, qual é a se-nha pa-ra u-sar a in-ter-net?
Once more:
Com licença, qual é a senha para usar a internet?
Com licença is “Excuse me.”
Qual means “which”.
(slow) Qual
Qual
The word é , just like mentioned in the previous lesson, is a present form of the verb “to be”.
A senha means “the password”.
(slow) A se-nha.
A senha.
The words para usar mean “to use”.
(slow) Pa-ra u-sar.
Para usar.
The last words a internet mean “the Internet”.
(slow) A in-ter-net.
A internet.
If you don’t carry your laptop around you will probably use an internet café. In Portuguese, it’s the same internet cafe.
You will need to ask at the reception counter how much the connection costs for one hour. That’s:
“Excuse me, how much does it cost to use Internet for one hour?”
Com licença, quanto custa uma hora de internet?
Let’s break it down:
(slow) Com li-cen-ça, quan-to cus-ta u-ma ho-ra de in-ter-net?
Once more:
Com licença, quanto custa uma hora de internet?
Quanto means “how much”.
Custa is a present form of the verb that means “to cost”.
Uma hora is translated as “one hour”.
(slow) Uma ho-ra.
Uma hora.
And at the end we have the two words De internet which are translated as “of internet”.
(slow) De in-ter-net.
De internet.
“Excuse me, how much does it cost to use Internet for one hour?”
Com licença, quanto custa uma hora de internet?
The answer will probably sound something like this:
Dois euros por uma hora.
“Two euros for one hour."
(slow) Do-is eu-ros por uma ho-ra.
Dois euros por uma hora.
