Can I use the verb 'ficar' here? Is it OK to say 'Este sapato fica bem em mim'? Obrigada :)
It's an expression "cair bem" = "fits well" :) it reminded me of a song called Maurício (Legião Urbana) "e dizem que a solidão até que me cai bem..." = "they say loneliness fits me well"
I can understand why clothing can "cair bem", but is this normally used for shoes too? I'd have thought "caber" or "servir", but then I've never tried on shoes when in Brazil!
I'd argue the "well" is somewhat unnecessary. I wrote "This shoe fits me" and it was marked wrong. I guess you could argue that complete precision is necessary, since "bem" appears in the original sentence, and yes, bem=well.
The error message was wrong either way, though. It says "You used the wrong word. This shoe fits me well" with the word "fits" urderlined.
