I am so completely lost with the this' and thats' of this language. There are so many variations and spellings and I have no clue what decides which "that" applies. Any help would be amazing.
Hello, I am Brazilian.
That = aquilo ( "aquilo" used for something far from who's talking) example: aquilo é um carro (that's a car)
This = isso/isto (used for something close to you)
Example: isso é minha mão (this is my hand)
Aquilo o aquela? To agree with "uma cadeira."
Still no answer?
'That thing is a chair' was not accepted! :-(
Because "thing" is implied and not actually said or written:
I don't understand why it is "Aquelo". I used "Aquela" because "cadeira" is feminine.
Can I say "Isso é uma cadeira"?
