Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Paloma: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question "Are you hungry?"

Lesson focus

In Portuguese this is
Felipe: Você está com fome?
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 after that
Felipe: com
Paloma: meaning "with."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) com
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: com
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: você está com
{pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: fome
Paloma: meaning "hunger."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) fome
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: fome
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Felipe: você está com fome?
{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 hungry?"
Felipe: Sim, eu estou com um pouco de fome.
Paloma: "Yes, I'm a little hungry." Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Felipe: (Slow) Sim, eu estou com um pouco de fome.
{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
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: com
Paloma: meaning "with."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) com
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: com
{Pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: um pouco
Paloma: meaning "a little."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) um pouco
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: um pouco
{Pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: de
Paloma: meaning "of."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) de
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: de
{Pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: fome
Paloma: meaning "hunger."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) fome
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: fome
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the speaker say, "Yes, I'm a little hungry," and then repeat.
Felipe: Sim, eu estou com um pouco de fome.
{pause}
Paloma: To use a different phrase, replace "a little" with "very."
Felipe: bastante
Paloma: "very"
Felipe: (slow) bastante (regular) bastante
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with "very."
Felipe: Sim, eu estou com bastante fome.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace "a little." Say "Yes, I'm very hungry."
{pause}
Felipe: Sim, eu estou com bastante fome.
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace "very" with "a little bit."
Felipe: um pouquinho
Paloma: "a little bit"
Felipe: (slow) um pouquinho (regular) um pouquinho
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with "a little bit."
Felipe: Sim, eu estou com um pouquinho de fome.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the Portuguese for "very." Say "Yes, I'm a little bit hungry."
{pause}
Felipe: Sim, eu estou com um pouquinho de fome.
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace "a little bit" with "dying."
Felipe: morrendo
Paloma: "dying"
Felipe: (slow) morrendo (regular) morrendo
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with "dying."
Felipe: Sim, eu estou morrendo de fome.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply remove “with” and replace the Portuguese for "a little bit. “with dying" Say "Yes, I'm dying of hunger."
{pause}
Felipe: Sim, eu estou morrendo de fome.
Paloma: To say "no", in a simple way, just say...
Felipe: Não, eu não estou com fome.
Paloma: Which is like saying "No, I'm not hungry," in English. Let's hear it slowly.
Felipe: (Slowly) Não, eu não estou com fome.
Paloma: And one more time at normal speed...
Felipe: Não, eu não estou com fome.
QUIZ
Paloma: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you're visiting Brazil, and someone asks you if you're hungry. You want to answer, "Yes, I'm a little hungry." Respond to the question.
Felipe: Você está com fome? (five seconds) Sim, eu estou com um pouco de fome.
Paloma: Now you want to say ,"Yes, I'm very hungry." Respond to the question.
Felipe: Você está com fome? (five seconds) Sim, eu estou com bastante fome.
Paloma: You want to say, "Yes, I'm a little bit hungry." Answer the speaker's question.
Felipe: Você está com fome? (five seconds) Sim, eu estou com um pouquinho de fome.
Paloma: You want to say, "Yes, I'm dying of hunger." Respond to the question.
Felipe: Você está com fome? (five seconds) Sim, eu estou morrendo de fome.
Paloma: You want to ask someone if they're hungry. Ask the question.
(5 seconds)
Felipe: Você está com fome?
{pause}
Paloma: Now it's time to answer the question with actual information about yourself.
Felipe: Você está com fome?
{pause}
