What does it mean?
A very common sentence in Portuguese meaning the time passes so fast!
Oh, thanks. We have the same in Russian. But is it the same in English?

Good one. LOL.
Yes it means the same in England
Drat, I was thinking it was "the flight time" Would that be "tempo de voo"

Is "voa" pronounced the same as "boa"?
No. But judge for yourself:

The regional Portuguese accent in Porto mixes up the "v" and the "b" so much so that they playfully exchange the letters as in turning verdinho into berdinho for a weekly farmers market they have there:
Thanks so much! This is a very helpful resource!
Hi Davu, thanks for this Forvo tip. I subscribed as SilentAnnie, seems a great help. Although, I still can't find how this pronunciation site works yet. Maybe later. Obrigada
