"Eu tenho um cavalo."

Translation:I have a horse.

Tenho sounds a lot like tengo (Spanish). I thought the nh in Portuguese sounded like the gn in French or the ñ in Spanish?


The sound is not that good.. but yes, nh is similae to gn in French.


I'm confused on the pronunciation of "o" at the end of words. It sometimes sounds like a short "u" sound in English and sometimes like an "o". Am I mishearing or is there a pronunciation pattern to follow?


it is like /oo/ in English. it sounds like o when it has an accent ô.
