This was a "Listen and Type" question, but there was no sound, either at regular speed or slower.
It seems to have been corrected. Thanks for reporting it! =)
You're right, there's no audio for it even now, when I try to play it here. :s Better report it (if you didn't already, if not then the next time you encounter it)
Thanks for the confirmation, cloudhorizon. I have reported it.
it sounds a lot like "heh-feh-soh", awful voice!
Heh-feh-saoh is correct, gabe. Rs at the beginning of words take on an H sound.
Really? similar to the french R? now it all makes sense!
Why is 'He is eating the meal" wrong?
I think it is because there is a closer translation for that: Ele está comendo a refeição. =]
Wouldn't "He eats a meal" also be a satisfactory translation?
In that case, the sentence would have to be Ele come uma refeição. =]
Why 'a' and not 'o'? Refeicao is masculine isn't it because it ends in an 'o'?
Words ended in "ção" can be either masculine or feminine. "Refeição" is a feminine noun.
Thanks Paulenrique. You are a great help to us learners!
