"O sapato do menino é grande."

Translation:The boy's shoe is big.

August 23, 2013



Well we all know what that means. He has big feet.


Why not:" the boy's shoe is grand."??


What does it mean "grand" in english? If it has the same meaning as "big", then it's correct.

    No, we would definitely not say the boy's shoe is "grand", as something that is "grand" is very special. For example, a Royal Wedding would be described as a "grand occasion".
