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 When is your birthday? In Portuguese this is

Paloma: The first word in the question is
Felipe: quando

Paloma: Listen again and repeat.
Felipe: quando
{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.

Paloma: You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies. Master the following pattern and responses to the question “When is your birthday?”
Felipe: É dia vinte e dois de agosto.
Paloma: "It's August 22nd.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Felipe: (Slow) É dia vinte e dois de agosto.

meaning “day”.

Paloma: To use a different phrase, replace “March 15th” with “October 1st”.
Felipe: primeiro de outubro
Paloma: October 1st
Felipe: (slow) primeiro de outubro (regular) primeiro de outubro
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “October 1st”
Felipe: É dia primeiro de outubro.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the Portuguese for “March 15th”. Say “It's October 1st.”
