Understanding spoken Portuguese is my problem. As a silly example, at the start of all the shorties someone says something that sounds like “bom tu come” but this doesn’t make sense to me. What is really being said, please?
Not silly at all Peter. It has fooled a few, including me, at an early stage in my learning. It is…
“Practice Portuguese ponto com” (ie PP .com) Hope that helps!
I know, I struggled with this for ages, got my Pt partner to listen and he cracked up at my translation, all it is is ‘ Practice Portuguese, dot com.’
it fooled me too, so you are not alone.
Sooo not alone.
Took me and my husband ages to understand that particular phrase. So you are in good company
