Portuguese 101: Hello and Bye

Last night, an idea struck me. I though of asking my students one word every class to translate it to their native language. I started with my student from Brazil, Mauricio. Brazil is the only country in South America whose national language is Portuguese.

Let’s start with a greeting:

Hello. How are you?

  > Olá, como vai você

    > Oi, tudo bem ?

My student told me that the second one is mostly said by native Portuguese.


 > Tchau.


Today, we’ve learned saying hello and goodbye in Portuguese. Tune in for more next time! 🙂
