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 Can you eat Brazilian food? In Portuguese this is
Felipe: Você consegue comer comida brasileira?
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: consegue
Paloma: meaning “can”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) consegue
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: consegue
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: você consegue
{pause}
Paloma: And next
Felipe: comer
Paloma: meaning “to eat”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) comer
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: comer
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: você consegue comer
{pause}
Paloma: Next is
Felipe: comida
Paloma: meaning “food”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) comida
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: comida
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 4 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: você consegue comer comida
{pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: brasileira
Paloma: meaning “Brazilian”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) brasileira
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: brasileira
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Felipe: você consegue comer comida brasileira?
{pause}
Paloma: You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies. Master the following pattern and responses to the question “Can you eat Brazilian food?”
Felipe: Sim, é deliciosa.
Paloma: "Yes, it's delicious.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Felipe: (Slow) Sim, é deliciosa.
{pause}
Paloma: To say "no", in a simple way, just say:
Felipe: Não, eu não consigo.
Paloma: Which is like saying “No, I can't.” in English. Let's hear it slowly.
Felipe: (Slowly) Não, eu não consigo.
Paloma: And one more time at normal speed:
Felipe: Não, eu não consigo.
Paloma: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Felipe: sim
Paloma: meaning “yes”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) sim
Paloma: Now repeat
Felipe: sim
{Pause}
Paloma: Next is
Felipe: é
Paloma: meaning “is”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) é
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: é
{Pause}
Paloma: And after that
Felipe: deliciosa
Paloma: meaning “delicious”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) deliciosa
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: deliciosa
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the speaker say, “Yes, it's delicious”, and then repeat.
Felipe: Sim, é deliciosa.
{pause}
Paloma: To use a different phrase, replace “delicious” with “very tasty.”
Felipe: muito gostosa
Paloma: very tasty
Felipe: (slow) muito gostosa (regular) muito gostosa
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “very tasty”
Felipe: Sim, é muito gostosa.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “delicious”. Say “Yes, it's very tasty.”
{pause}
Felipe: Sim, é muito gostosa.
Paloma: To use a different phrase, replace “very tasty” with “very diverse.”
Felipe: muito diversificada
Paloma: very diverse
Felipe: (slow) muito diversificada (regular) muito diversificada
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “very diverse”
Felipe: Sim, é muito diversificada.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “very tasty”. Say “Yes, it's very diverse”.
{pause}
Felipe: Sim, é muito diversificada.
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace “very diverse” with “too heavy”.
Felipe: muito pesada
Paloma: too heavy
Felipe: (slow) muito pesada (regular) muito pesada
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “too heavy”
Felipe: Não, é muito pesada.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “tasty”. Say “No, it's too heavy.”
{pause}
Felipe: Não, é muito pesada.
