If you want to say I am hot, I am cold I am hungry, I am thirsty, which is the more usual construct. Would you say
Estou com fome or Tenho fome
Estou com sede or Tenho sede
Estou com calor or Tenho calor
Estou com frio or Tenho frio.
Or is there no difference at all.
I remember silencing a table in my early days of learning French, by announcing “Je suis chaude” instead of “J’ai chaud”. Basically I was announcing “I’m hot to trot” .Don’t want to make that mistake again.
Thanks so much, Francesca
