2016 Rio Olympics – Sentences you need to know
Welcome to Portuguese Basic Tips called 2016 Rio Olympics – Sentences you need to know
On today’s episode, we are going to speak on a few sentences you need to know if you are coming to Brazil to the Olympic Games. And at the end of that, I will give you a few tips, in order to have a pleasant stay in Rio de Janeiro. After that sequence of episodes we made about Portuguese connectives, let’s relieve things a little bit.
Here is a great guide with things to do in Brazil
If you follow this podcast for some time, you may have heard our episode about directions in Portuguese. You might notice some variations of those terms if compared with the expressions we use daily. I will also speak about those variations and what you have to do in order to understand them.
If you are in Rio de Janeiro to see the Olympics you’ll naturally need to know how to get to a specific place like a soccer stadium as Maracanã, for instance. I know the word “Maracanã” can be difficult to pronounce for people who were born in other countries, so I tried to explain how to do that.
At the end of this episode, you’ll be capable to understand equivalent Portuguese sentences to:
- How do I get to the bakery?
- How do I buy tickets?
- How do I order a drink?
- And others
At the very end of this podcast I talked a little about Zica Virus, violence and climate in Brazil and what to do in order to minimize them and have a pleasant stay in Brazil.
If you want to have even more in Rio de Janeiro, I found this article (only in English) which lists 13 things to do in Cidade Maravilhosa.
