Mar

Continuing with the theme of this month, VACATIONS (insert chorus of angels), today’s word is a place where every Brazilian wants to be… the sea.

In this ridiculously hot wheater that we have in Brazil during January, the only option is to have some fun in the water. In a way, it’s a sort of tradition to go to the beach and to dive in the sea, even if it’s for just one day!

Hey, you! I hope you have enjoyed our word of the day! Come back for more next Saturday!

Oh, and subscribe to our email list!

Tchau!

Praia

PRAHEE•ah

Are you in Brazil in January? Well, if you decide to go to the beach, be warned: it’s going to be JAM-PACKED!

I am here as a friend to tell you that, although it seems beautiful and warm outside, you will probably have to face traffic under that sun… hahaha That, however, never stopped us from going to the beach and having some fun!

Don’t forget to bring your sunscreen!

Tchau!

Parabéns

Parabéns can either mean a general “congratulations” for any sort of achievement or it can also be a substitue for “Feliz Aniversário”, or, in English,”happy birthday”. Take a look at the two examples below:

Parabéns, vó! A senhora nem parece que acabou de fazer 89 anos! Está linda!

Happy birthday (congratulations), grandma! You don’t even look like you just completed 89 years old! You’re beautiful!

Carlinhos, meus parabéns! Fiquei sabendo que você entrou na faculdade! Estou muito feliz por você!

Carlinhos, congratulations! I heard that you started college! I so happy for you!

A palavra do dia de hoje é:

Férias

FEH•ree•ahs

Férias can either be a school break or a work vacation. In Brazil, school vacations start in December and last until the middle of February – something much different from other countries, specially in the northern hemisphere. And people usually get some rest from work between the 25th of December and the 5th of January…

So, in this time of the year, many people go to the beach and enjoy themselves a little break from their routines – specially in this very hot weather!
