(Do they say O for 0 in Portuguese, like we do in English?)
I would actually suggest 'dois-quatro-meia-zero-um'. The word "meia" is commonly used in place of number six (originating from half a dozen), and if a Brazilian is e.g. giving you his/her phone no., you're likely to hear 'meia'. :-)
It depends on the word. When you have "qu", you may or may not pronounce the "u".
- Quem ("u" is not pronounced)
- Quando ("u" is pronounced)
Thanks. But I thought i heard one of the voice recording clearly pronouncing in on "quem". So I take it it's a mistake?
Thanks! I'm no expert, but could it be that the u after q is only pronounced if it's followed by e or i?
Edit: I meant only pronounced if it's not followed by i and e
