Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Paloma: In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Portuguese learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.

Lesson focus

Paloma: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question What's your name? In Portuguese this is
Felipe: Qual é o seu nome?
Paloma: The first word in the question is
Felipe: qual
Paloma: meaning “which” in English.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) qual
Paloma: Listen again and repeat.
Felipe: qual
{Pause}
Paloma: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Felipe: é
Paloma: meaning “is”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) é
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: é
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: qual é
{pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: o
Paloma: meaning “the”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) o
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: o
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: qual é o
{pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: seu
Paloma: meaning “your”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) seu
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: seu
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the first 4 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: qual é o seu
{pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: nome
Paloma: meaning “name”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) nome
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: nome
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Felipe: qual é o seu nome?
{pause}
Paloma: You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies. Master the following pattern and responses to the question What's your name?
Felipe: Meu nome é Carlos.
Paloma: "My name is Carlos.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Felipe: (Slow) Meu nome é Carlos.
{pause}
Paloma: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Felipe: meu
Paloma: meaning “my.”
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) meu
Paloma: Now repeat
Felipe: meu
{Pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: nome
Paloma: meaning “name”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) nome
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: nome
{Pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: é
Paloma: meaning “is”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) é
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: é
{Pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: Carlos
Paloma: which is the name Carlos.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) Carlos
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: Carlos
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the speaker say, My name is Carlos., and then repeat.
Felipe: Meu nome é Carlos.
{pause}
Paloma: To use a different phrase, replace Carlos with Matthew.
Felipe: Mateus
Paloma: Matthew
Felipe: (slow) Mateus (regular) Mateus
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Matthew
Felipe: Meu nome é Mateus.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace Carlos. Say “My name is Matthew.”
{pause}
Felipe: Meu nome é Mateus.
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace Matthew with Paula.
Felipe: Paula
Paloma: Paula
Felipe: (slow) Paula (regular) Paula
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Paula
Felipe: Meu nome é Paula.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the name Matthew. Say “My name is Paula”.
{pause}
Felipe: Meu nome é Paula.
Paloma: To make another phrase, replace Paula with Adriana.
Felipe: Adriana
Paloma: Adriana
Felipe: (slow) Adriana (regular) Adriana
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Adriana
Felipe: Meu nome é Adriana.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the name Paula. “Say My name is Adriana.”
{pause}
Felipe: Meu nome é Adriana.
