Lesson Transcript

In this lesson, we'll introduce some words and phrases for saying goodbye to someone. Let’s begin.
A parting expression that we can use any time of the day with strangers or friends is tchau, which means “bye”.
Let’s break it down:
(slow) Tcha-u.
Once more:
You'll also hear tchau-tchau, which is even less formal and is equivalent to "bye-bye."
If you want to say “goodbye”, you say
(slow) a-de-us
Adeus is formal. It's often used by older people.
Another greeting you can use is Até a próxima, which is translated as “until we meet again”.
Let’s break it down:
(slow) A-té a pró-xi-ma.
Once more:
Até a próxima.
The first word, até, means “until”
(slow) a-té
The second word, a, means "the."
(slow) a
The last word, próxima, means "next".
(slow) pró-xi-ma
Literally this translates to "until the next" but it means "Until next time" or "Until we meet again."
Farewell expressions in Portuguese are easy, because you can use most normal greetings as farewells also. For example, let’s say you meet someone in the morning and say "bom dia" which means "Good morning."
(slow) Bom di-a.
Bom dia.
When you say farewell to them, and it's still morning, you can say "bom dia" again. When you say "bom dia" as a parting expression, you are wishing the other person a "good morning" or a "good day."
(slow) Bom dia.
Bom dia.
The same goes for boa tarde, which means "good afternoon", and boa noite which means "good night". They are all both greetings and farewells that we learned on Lesson 5.
Let's break these down starting with boa tarde:
(slow) Bo-a tar-de
Boa tarde.
And one time for boa noite:
(slow) Bo-a noi-te.
Boa noite.

Como se diz "Take care" em português? I have seen in a book -- "Até à próxima." I thought that was "See you soon."

Some people say "Take care" when they say goodbye. How do you say "Take care" in Portuguese?

É optimo ver portugués europeu. Gostaria muito ir para o Brazil mas eu moro em inglaterra, portanto uso mais portuguẽs europeu. Por favour, podemos ver mais de isto.

It's great to see European Portuguese. I would love to come to Brazil but I live in England, so I am more likely to use European Portuguese. Please may we have more like this.
