Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Paloma: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question "Do you have a cell phone?"

Lesson focus

Paloma: In Portuguese this is
Felipe: Você tem celular?
Paloma: The first word in the question is
Felipe: você
Paloma: meaning "you" in English.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) você
Paloma: Listen again and repeat.
Felipe: você
{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: tem
Paloma: meaning "have."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) tem
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: tem
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: você tem
{pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: celular
Paloma: meaning "cell phone."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) celular
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: celular
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Felipe: você tem celular?
{pause}
Paloma: (You'll hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question "Do you have a cell phone?"
Felipe: Sim, eu tenho um iPhone.
Paloma: "Yes, I have an iPhone." Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Felipe: (Slow) Sim, eu tenho um iPhone.
{pause}
Paloma: Let's break down the "yes" answer from the beginning. The first word...
Felipe: sim
Paloma: means "yes."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) sim
Paloma: Now repeat
Felipe: sim
{Pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: eu
Paloma: meaning "I."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) eu
A: Now repeat.
Felipe: eu
{Pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: tenho
Paloma: meaning "have."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) tenho
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: tenho
{Pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: um
Paloma: meaning "an."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) um
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: um
{Pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: iPhone
Paloma: meaning "iPhone."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) iPhone
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: iPhone
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the speaker say, "Yes, I have an iPhone," and then repeat.
Felipe: Sim, eu tenho um iPhone.
{pause}
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace iPhone with BlackBerry.
Felipe: BlackBerry
Paloma: "BlackBerry"
Felipe: (slow) BlackBerry (regular) BlackBerry
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with "BlackBerry."
Felipe: Sim, eu tenho um BlackBerry.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace iPhone. Say "Yes, I have a BlackBerry."
{pause}
Felipe: Sim, eu tenho um BlackBerry.
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace BlackBerry with Samsung Galaxy.
Felipe: Samsung Galaxy
Paloma: "Samsung Galaxy"
Felipe: (slow) Samsung Galaxy (regular) Samsung Galaxy
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with "Samsung Galaxy."
Felipe: Sim, eu tenho um Samsung Galaxy.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the Portuguese for BlackBerry. Say "Yes, I have a Samsung Galaxy."
{pause}
Felipe: Sim, eu tenho um Samsung Galaxy.
Paloma: To use a different phrase, replace Samsung Galaxy with Nokia Lumia.
Felipe: Nokia Lumia
Paloma: "Nokia Lumia"
Felipe: (slow) Nokia Lumia (regular) Nokia Lumia
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with "Nokia Lumia."
Felipe: Sim, eu tenho um Nokia Lumia.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the Portuguese for "Samsung Galaxy." Say "Yes, I have a Nokia Lumia."
{pause}
Felipe: Sim, eu tenho um Nokia Lumia.
Paloma: To say "no", just say...
Felipe: Não, eu não tenho celular.
Paloma: Which is like saying "No, I don't have a cell phone," in English. Let's hear it slowly.
Felipe: (Slowly) Não, eu não tenho celular.
Paloma: And one more time at normal speed...
Felipe: Não, eu não tenho celular.
QUIZ
Paloma: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you're visiting Brazil, and someone asks you if you have a cell phone. You have an iPhone. Respond to the question.
Felipe: Você tem celular? (five seconds) Sim, eu tenho um iPhone.
Paloma: Now imagine you have a BlackBerry. Respond to the question.
Felipe: Você tem celular? (five seconds) Sim, eu tenho um BlackBerry.

Felipe: Você tem celular? (five seconds) Sim, eu tenho um Samsung Galaxy.
Paloma: Now imagine you have a Nokia Lumia. Respond to the question.
Felipe: Você tem celular? (five seconds) Sim, eu tenho um Nokia Lumia.
Paloma: Now you want to ask that person if they have a cell phone. Ask the question.

Felipe: Você tem celular?
{pause}

Felipe: Você tem celular?
{pause}
