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 did you learn Portuguese? In Portuguese this is
Felipe: Onde você aprendeu português?
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: aprendeu
Paloma: meaning “learned”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) aprendeu
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: aprendeu
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: onde você aprendeu
{pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: português
Paloma: meaning “Portuguese.”
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) português
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: português
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Felipe: onde você aprendeu português?
{pause}
Paloma: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question Where did you learn Portuguese??
Felipe: Eu aprendi na escola.
Paloma: "I learned it in school.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Felipe: (Slow) Eu aprendi na escola.
{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: aprendi
Paloma: meaning “learned”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) aprendi
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: aprendi
{Pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: na
which is the contracted version of the words for “in the”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) na
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: na
{Pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: escola
Paloma: meaning “school”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) escola
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: escola
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the speaker say, “I learned it in school”, and then repeat.
Felipe: Eu aprendi na escola.
{pause}
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace “in school” with “at home”.
Felipe: em casa
Paloma: at home
Felipe: (slow) em casa (regular) em casa
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “at home”
Felipe: Eu aprendi em casa.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “in school”. Say “I learned it at home.”
{pause}
Felipe: Eu aprendi em casa.
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace “at home” with “in a language school.”
Felipe: em uma escola de idiomas
Paloma: in a language school
Felipe: (slow) em uma escola de idiomas
(regular) em uma escola de idiomas
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “in a language school”
Felipe: Eu aprendi em uma escola de idiomas.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “at home”. Say “I learned it in a language school.”
{pause}
Felipe: Eu aprendi em uma escola de idiomas.
Paloma: To make another phrase, replace “in a language school” with “with my friends.”
Felipe: com os meus amigos
Paloma: with my friends
Felipe: (slow) com os meus amigos (regular) com os meus amigos
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “with my friends”
Felipe: Eu aprendi com os meus amigos.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the Portuguese for “in a language school.” Say “I learned it with my friends.”
{pause}
Felipe: Eu aprendi com os meus amigos

Hello Chad,


Thanks for posting.


Your phrase is written correctly; you could also say "Eu aprendi português online" (I learnt Portuguese online) as we also use the word "online" here :wink:


The accent, though, of "português" is not the same as in the word in English "Portuguese". In the lesson materials, vocabulary tab, you can listen to the correct pronunciation and also record your voice to practice it, okay?


If you have any doubts, feel free to contact us :wink:
