Portuguese Phrases

The pronunciation is continental Portuguese. In Brazilian Portuguese, usually the 's's do not have a 'shh' sound. i.e. 'está' (is) is pronounced 'eh-sta' and not 'eshh-sta'. 'd's are pronounced as 'j's. i.e. 'dia' (day) is 'jee-ah' and not 'dee-ah', as she does it.

But Brazil is a big country, so you'll be understood anyway. :)


Até logo instead of Até lol.

Tenho que ir (to go) instead of Tenho que partir (to leave).
