Carnaval

car•nah•VAL

This is one of the most famous holidays in Brazil! During Carnaval, people usually travel to different cities to relax, or they might choose to celebrate and dance under a lot of sun, following “trios elétricos” and watching the parades.

Differently from what people may think, we do not hear only samba on Caranaval: there is axé, frevo, marchinhas, pagode, sertanejo universitário, forró and many other music genres!

Palavra do Dia

A palavra do dia de hoje é:

Dieta

Djee•EH•tah

Part of the New Year’s resolutions of almost everyone, “dieta” is a very common and useful word, which can also be substituted for “regime”. But, when we’re talking about an specific diet, for example, the protein diet, we use only the word “dieta”.

Here are 2 examples:

Ano passado fiz uma dieta (regime) incrível e perdi 10 quilos.

Acho que a “dieta da proteína” não me ajudou muito… vou ter que ir na nutricionista.

Até mais!
