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 Do you like Brazilian food? In Portuguese this is

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: gosta
Paloma: meaning “like”.
Felipe: (Slow, by syllable) gosta
Paloma: Now repeat.
Felipe: gosta
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Felipe: você gosta
{pause}

Felipe: Sim, eu gosto principalmente de feijoada.
Paloma: "Yes, I especially love feijoada.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Felipe: (Slow) Sim, eu gosto principalmente de feijoada.
{pause}
To say "no", in a simple way, just say:
Felipe: Não, eu não gosto.
Paloma: Which is like saying “No, I don't like it.” in English. Let's hear it slowly.
Felipe: (Slowly) Não, eu não gosto.
Paloma: And one more time at normal speed:
Felipe: Não, eu não gosto.
Paloma: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:

Felipe: feijoada
{Pause}
Paloma: Listen to the speaker say, “Yes, I especially love feijoada.” and then repeat.
Felipe: Sim, eu gosto principalmente de feijoada.
{pause}
Paloma: To expand on the pattern, replace feijoada with churrasco.
Felipe: churrasco
Paloma: churrasco (Brazilian-style barbecue)
Felipe: (slow) churrasco (regular) churrasco
Paloma: Listen to the phrase again, this time with churrasco
Felipe: Sim, eu gosto principalmente de churrasco.
Paloma: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace feijoada. Say “Yes, I especially love churrasco.”
{pause}
Felipe: Sim, eu gosto principalmente de churrasco.
