Hi Michael,

Regarding the entries in the [Dialogue]:

'Eu faço o almoço".

"Eu compro comida."

The first one is more specific: you're preparing a specific meal, so the article in the Portuguese sentence helps delivering that idea.

The second one, [I buy groceries.] is more general, meaning that you buy supplies/groceries in general, so the article wouldn't be necessary.

Reg. [Eu fiquei o dia todo com preguiça.]/[I spend day being lazy.], you could use "dia inteiro" instead of "dia todo".👍

The verb 'ficar" has many uses, for example: "ficar à toa" (to idle), "ficar à vontade" (to make oneself comfortable), so it's a very versatile verb.

Hope this helps! For more details, please check out our http://www.PortuguesePod101.com/myteacher

Confused by a few things:

1. Eu faço o almoço.mas Eu compro comida. When do I know which verbs take the article?

2. Eu fiquei o dia todo com preguiça.

Wouldn't I was lazy all day. Be correct and not spend which would be passar/ passri?

Also why not Eu fiquei com preguiça o dia inteiro?

3. Ficar as I understand stand it in this context applies to was/ estava but is used for change in feeling / emotions.
