Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
In this lesson, we’ll introduce you to some phrases you will find useful in case you need medical assistance. When traveling, sometimes the body takes a little time to adjust, and the immune system is no different. In this lesson, we’ll go over some phrases that will help get you to a location where you can get medical assistance.
When a person feels sick people usually start asking a lot of questions, in which case you might want to specify that you feel very sick.
GRAMMAR POINT
We’ll start with the phrase “I feel very sick”
In Portuguese, this is Sinto-me muito mal.
Let’s break it down.
(slow) Sin-to-me mui-to mal.
Let’s hear it again.
Sinto-me muito mal.
First, we have , Sinto-me which is a form of the verb “to feel”. In English the word is translated as “I feel”.
Next we have muito which means “very”.
(slow) mui-to.
muito.
After this comes mal this in English is “bad”.
(slow) mal.
mal.
All together, we have
(slow) Sin-to-me mui-to mal.
Sinto-me muito mal.
The literal translation is “I feel very sick.”
For asking to call the ambulance you have to say Chame uma ambulância, por favor. In English this is “Call an ambulance please”.
Let’s break it down.
(slow) Cha-me u-ma am-bu-lân-ci-a, por fa-vor.
Chame uma ambulância, por favor.
The first word Chame is a form of the verb “to call”.
(slow) Cha-me.
Chame.
After that we have uma ambulância or “an ambulance” in English.
(slow) u-ma am-bu-lân-ci-a.
uma ambulância.
And at the end comes por favor (please).
The whole phrase once again is:
(slow) Cha-me u-ma am-bu-lân-ci-a, por fa-vor.
Chame umaa ambulância, por favor.
