Lesson Transcript

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

Lesson focus

In Portuguese this is
Felipe: De quem é isto?
Paloma: The first word in the question is
Felipe: de
Paloma: meaning "of" in English.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) de
Paloma: Listen again and repeat.
Felipe: de
{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: quem
Paloma: meaning "whom."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) quem
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: quem
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: de quem
{pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: é
Paloma: meaning "is."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) é
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: é
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: de quem é
{pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: isto
Paloma: meaning "this."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) isto
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: isto
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Felipe: De quem é isto?
{pause}
Paloma: (You'll hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question "Whose is this?"
Felipe: É meu.
Paloma: "It's mine." Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Felipe: (Slow) É meu.
{pause}
Paloma: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word...
Felipe: é
Paloma: means "is."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) é
Paloma: Now repeat
Felipe: é
{Pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: meu
Paloma: meaning "mine."
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) meu
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: meu
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the speaker say, "It's mine," and then repeat.
Felipe: É meu.
{pause}
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace "mine" with "yours."
Felipe: seu
Paloma: "yours"
Felipe: (slow) seu (regular) seu
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with "yours."
Felipe: É seu.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace "mine." Say "It's yours."
{pause}
Felipe: É seu.
Paloma: To use a different phrase, replace "yours" with "his."
Felipe: dele
Paloma: "his"
Felipe: (slow) dele (regular) dele
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with "his."
Felipe: É dele.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the Portuguese for "yours." Say "It's his."
{pause}
Felipe: É dele.
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace "his" with "Natalia’s."
Felipe: da Natália
Paloma: "Natalia’s"
Felipe: (slow) da Natália (regular) da Natália
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with "Natalia’s."
Felipe: É da Natália.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the Portuguese for "his." Say "It's Natalia’s."
{pause}
Felipe: É da Natália.
QUIZ
Paloma: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you're visiting Brazil, and someone asks you who something belongs to. You want to say, "It's mine." Respond to the question.
Felipe: De quem é isto? (five seconds) É meu.
Paloma: Now, you want to say, "It's yours." Respond to the question.
Felipe: De quem é isto? (five seconds) É seu.
Paloma: Now, you want to say, "It's his." Answer the speaker's question.
Felipe: De quem é isto? (five seconds) É dele.
Paloma: Now, you want to say, "It's Natalia’s." Respond to the question.
Felipe: De quem é isto? (five seconds) É da Natália.
Paloma: Imagine that you find something, and you want to know who it belongs to. Ask the question.
(5 seconds)
Felipe: De quem é isto?
{pause}
