In English, one to three sounds quite different than the Portuguese. :D However, it almost seems in both languages, including the Portuguese, that it means he skipped over two (dois).

What would be the proper Portuguese for that phenomenon?

Ficaria mais natural "Ele contou até três".

  • de um a três = from one to three
  • até três = up to three

São duas frases diferentes.
