"Olá vô"

January 27, 2013


ola does not equal hi anymore? According to all of my brazillian friends, they say otherwise.

'Oi' is the informal 'hello'.

I'm having trouble identifying the word for Grandmother and Grandfather. Can someone help me? Cheers!

  • Grandfather = Avô, Vô, Vovô (circumflex, closed vowel sound like the o in "coal")
  • Grandmother = Avó, Vó, Vovó (acute accent, open vowel sound like the o in "hot)
