Oi Jaimie,


When talking about a period of time, we always use the singular form: faz.


I hope it helps!

I have a questions about using 'faz + time.' One of my Brazilian friends always corrects me and say 'fazem' when it's more than one. For example, 'Fazem duas horas...' 'Fazem 6 meses,' but here you just use 'faz.' Which is correct? Thanks in advance!

Hi Jaimie,


That's great!


Just a minor note: "(...) quero conhecer o Brasil." (in Portuguese "Brasil" uses "s"; in English, "z": "Brazil").


Feel free to let us know if you have any questions.


Sincerely,

Cristiane

Faz uns 2 anos que eu quero conhecer Brazil. Agora tenho muitos alunos brasileiros e eles sempre falam do seu

país. Parece que é um país encantador com muita natureza. Eu gostaria de conhecer as Cataratas do Iguaçu.

Oi Laderon,


Wow, so many questions!

Let's see:

1) the correct way is "Eu achei que eu ia à praia." (in casual speech, we use "para a praia" more commonly, although it's less correct);

2) We say "picante" or "apimentado", but quente is only for high temperature;

3) "Faz favor" is used to ask a favor: "Você pode me fazer um favor?" (Can you do me a favor?)

When my mom was mad at me, she would also say "Faz favor de arrumar o seu quarto!" (Do me a favor and clean your room!); and "por favor" is Please;

4) Where did you see "bailada"? We have "balada", that nowadays means disco in Brazil;

5) Eu acho que sim. and Eu acho que não.


Have fun with this and good luck with your Portuguese studies!

I hope it won't come too unappropriate if I ask a couple of questions at a time?

1) How to say I thought I would go to the beach (when I did not have any doubts about it) ACHEI QUE FUI IR Á PRAIA - / ACHEI QUE IREI Á PRAIA or ACHEI QUE IA Á PRAIA?

2) Can I use the word QUENTE for spicy? ESTE PRATO TEM CHILE, É MUITO QUENTE

3) Do you say FAZ FAVOR instead of POR FAVOR in Brazil?

4) Why do you day DANCAR but A BAILADA?

5) How to say I THINK SO (CREO QUE SI) / I DON´T THINK SO (CREO QUE NO)

(by the way I am not Spanish speaker, I just compare the portuguese with Spanish due to the fact that they are way too close)
