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 Where do you live? In Portuguese this is
Felipe: Onde você mora?
Paloma: The first word in the question is
Felipe: onde
Paloma: meaning “where” in English.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) onde
Paloma: Listen again and repeat.
Felipe: onde
{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: você
Paloma: meaning “you”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) você
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: você
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: onde você
{pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: mora
Paloma: meaning “(you) live”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) mora
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: mora
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Felipe: onde você mora?
{pause}
Paloma: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question “Where do you live?”
Felipe: Eu moro em Nova York.
Paloma: "I live in New York.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Felipe: (Slow) Eu moro em Nova York.
{pause}
Paloma: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Felipe: eu
Paloma: meaning “I”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) eu
Paloma: Now repeat
Felipe: eu
{Pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: moro
Paloma: meaning “(I) live.”
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) moro
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: moro
{Pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: em
Paloma: meaning “in”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) em
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: em
{Pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: Nova York
which is “New York.”
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) Nova York
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: Nova York
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the speaker say, “I live in New York”, and then repeat.
Felipe: Eu moro em Nova York.
{pause}
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace “New York” with “Tokyo.”
Felipe: Tóquio
Paloma: Tokyo
Felipe: (slow) Tóquio (regular) Tóquio
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Tokyo”
Felipe: Eu moro em Tóquio.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “New York”. Say “I live in Tokyo.”
{pause}
Felipe: Eu moro em Tóquio.
Paloma: To make another phrase, replace “Tokyo” with “Paris”.
Felipe: Paris
Paloma: Paris
Felipe: (slow) Paris (regular) Paris
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Paris”
Felipe: Eu moro em Paris.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the Portuguese for “Tokyo”. Say “I live in Paris”.
{pause}
Felipe: Eu moro em Paris.
Paloma: To use a different phrase, replace “Paris” with “Vancouver”.
Felipe: Vancouver
Paloma: Vancouver
Felipe: (slow) Vancouver (regular) Vancouver
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Vancouver”
Felipe: Eu moro em Vancouver.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “Paris”. Say “I live in Vancouver.”
{pause}
Felipe: Eu moro em Vancouver.
QUIZ
Paloma: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting Brazil and someone asks where you live. You live in New York. Respond to the question.
Felipe: Onde você mora? (five seconds) Eu moro em Nova York.
Paloma: Imagine you live in Tokyo. Respond to the question.
Felipe: Onde você mora? (five seconds) Eu moro em Tóquio.
Paloma: Imagine you live in Paris. Answer the speaker's question.
Felipe: Onde você mora? (five seconds) Eu moro em Paris.
Paloma: Imagine you live in Vancouver. Respond to the question.
Felipe: Onde você mora? (five seconds) Eu moro em Vancouver.
Paloma: Now you want to ask someone where they live. Ask the question...
(5 seconds)
Felipe: Onde você mora?
{pause}
Paloma: Now it's time to answer the question with actual information about yourself.
Felipe: Onde você mora?
{pause}

Hi Luba,


Thank you for posting.


Both "ser" and "estar" correspond to the English verb "to be." However, they're used differently. For instance, "ser"can be used to describe the characteristics of someone or something. "Estar", instead, is used to describe the condition of something or someone at the moment (feeling, emotions, etc.) and to tell location of people or things that can move.


For example

"Eu sou brasileira" (I'm Brazilian)

"Eu estou com frio" (I'm cold)

What's the difference between "eu sou" and "estou", if any? Obrigada!
