I used 'nice' as a translation for boas. Apparently, I'm wrong, even though 'nice' is listed under the word when I hover over it. Why am I wrong?
While "boas" can be translated as "nice" in some contexts, "nice" is an adjective that is not usual to apply to apples... Here we're trying to say that apples look good or they taste good.
Besides, Portuguese has a better translation for "nice" which is "simpático/simpática".
Nice in English doesn't have to translate to 'simpatico.' As SophySmith said, "The apples are nice" should be accepted.
I understand that "nice" is a good translation for "estão boas"... you are liking them...
Can someone please explain the word "good"? Bon bom bons boas. What do i use for what? So confused.
Bom = masculine singular
Bons = masculine plural
Boa = feminine singular
Boas = feminine plural
I am confused about the difference between "boas" and "bons". Can someone please clarify when to use each?
Boas is for feminine words (meninas, maças,..) and bons for masculine ones. Both of them are used in plural. The singular forms are boa and bom.
Is thr a easier way to remember that which words are masculine and which are feminine? ?
Words that end in a are usualy feminine, words that end in o will be masculine. There are a few other rules but mostly you will have to remember the rest
im still confusing 'sou' and 'sao' Can someone please explain and help remember?
'sou' is the present form of the verb 'ser' in the 1st person of singular: "Eu sou". 'são' is the present form of same verb in the 3rd person of plural: "Eles são". If you find it helpful, there is the conjugation of the verb 'ser' in present:
Explanations should be more specific about the agreement between nouns and adjectives.
Would you use "ser" instead of "estar" here in everyday conversation? After all, the apples will most certainly turn bad after a while..?
