Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question "Are you all right?"

Lesson focus

In Portuguese this is
Felipe: Você está bem?
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: está
Paloma: meaning "are."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) está
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: está
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: você está
{pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: bem
Paloma: meaning "well" or "right."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) bem
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: bem
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Felipe: você está bem?
{pause}
Paloma: (You'll hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question "Are you all right?"
Felipe: Eu estou cansado.
Paloma: "I'm tired." Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Felipe: (Slow) Eu estou cansado.
{pause}
Paloma: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word...
Felipe: eu
Paloma: means "I."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) eu
Paloma: Now repeat
Felipe: eu
{Pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: estou
Paloma: meaning "am".
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) estou
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: estou
{Pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: cansado
Paloma: meaning "tired."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) cansado
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: cansado
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the speaker say, "I'm tired," and then repeat.
Felipe: Eu estou cansado.
{pause}
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace "tired" with "angry."
Felipe: bravo
Paloma: "angry"
Felipe: (slow) bravo (regular) bravo
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with "angry."
Felipe: Eu estou bravo.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace "tired." Say "I'm angry."
{pause}
Felipe: Eu estou bravo.
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace "angry" with "worried".
Felipe: preocupado
Paloma: "worried"
Felipe: (slow) preocupado (regular) preocupado
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with "worried."
Felipe: Eu estou preocupado.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the Portuguese for "angry." Say "I'm worried."
{pause}
Felipe: Eu estou preocupado.
Paloma: Now let’s learn how to respond to this question as a female speaker. Normally you just have to add an “a” or replace the “o” with an “a” at the end of the word to make it feminine.
Felipe: Let’s practice. Listeners, say "I’m tired" in feminine form.
Paloma: Eu estou cansada.
(slow) Eu estou cansada.(regular) Eu estou cansada.
Felipe: Now let’s try with “angry”. Listeners, say "I’m angry" in feminine form.
Paloma: Eu estou brava.
(slow) Eu estou brava.(regular) Eu estou brava.
Felipe: This time, we’ll practice with “worried”. Listeners, say "I’m worried" in feminine form.
Paloma: Eu estou preocupada.
(slow) Eu estou preocupada. (regular) Eu estou preocupada.
Paloma: This rule can be used with all the examples from before. Now we’ll learn how to answer this question using an answer that can be used both by men and women.
Paloma: Let’s replace "worried" with "sleepy".
Felipe: com sono
Paloma: "sleepy"
Felipe: (slow) com sono (regular) com sono
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with "sleepy."
Felipe: Eu estou com sono.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the Portuguese for "worried." Say "I'm sleepy."
{pause}
Felipe: Eu estou com sono.
QUIZ
Paloma: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you're visiting Brazil, and someone asks you what's wrong. You want to answer, "I'm tired." Respond to the question.
Felipe: Você está bem? (five seconds) Eu estou cansado.
Paloma: Now you want to say, "I'm angry." Respond to the question.
Felipe: Você está bem? (five seconds) Eu estou bravo.
Paloma: Now, you want to say, "I'm worried." Answer the speaker's question.
Felipe: Você está bem? (five seconds) Eu estou preocupado.
Paloma: Imagine you're sleepy. Respond to the question.
Felipe: Você está bem? (five seconds) Eu estou com sono.
Paloma: Now you want to ask someone if they are all right. Ask the question.
(5 seconds)
Felipe: Você está bem?
{pause}
Now its time to answer the question with actual information about yourself.
Felipe: Você está bem?

Olá Darren,


Tudo bem?


Thanks for posting.


"Estou" is the verb "estar" (to be) conjugated for the 1st person singular:

Eu estou feliz.

I am happy.


"Está" the verb "estar" (to be) conjugated for the 3rd person singular:

Ele está feliz.

He is happy.


Ela está feliz.

She is happy.


:wink:

Please let us know if you have further questions.
