Is this some sort of portuguese saying? How many others got this wrong. I know I did!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Danmoller

Yes, it's used....means I keep talking over and over,.... or something like that.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mfd777

I believe this is meant like: I talk and talk, but no one listens.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/John_Difeo

I'm listening, bro.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JMaibor

Yup. Thought it was going to be "I speak and I say".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bigglesworth

I've never heard of this "I speak and I say" phrase - is it US English?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/matyvp

I wrote "I talk and talk" , I feel (being spanish) it's something like "I never stop talking". I'm not sure but I believe "I speak and I say" has other meaning in english

Hey! I'm spanish too! helps a lot when you want to learn portugese.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pakap

French guy here. "Je parle, je parle..." can also mean that.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/0z44

As a mexican, I agree too


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Naty_pazify

As a chilean think the same, i talk and talk.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Serendipity90

As Italian, I agree your explication.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RodolfoRG

As a brazilian, I agree with you ;) It could be part of a sentence like "[...] and nobody listens to me."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ManuelLopez642

Romance languages for the win!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dallanto123

I'm talk spanish too xD.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JoseQu

I speak spanish and I can't agree more.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fposada

I got it wrong too. "Talk" isn't even a translation that shows up. I also put "I speak and I say."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lfl10

Ele fala demasiado, simplesmente.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FLara

The meaning of this could be that I talk a lot, or that I repeat the same thing a lot of times.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vortex1

And talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/adrianojp2000

I am native, and then, I know that this sentence isn't usual in Brazil, unfortunable this is not a good exemple sentence, If you have more doubt about portuguese I can help you, follow me.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielTietz

eu falo e falo... e você não me escuta


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/esjlim

In the recording, I kept on hearing a P sound. It is just how it is pronounced?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/katelynmmm

Like "fallow" but with some rythm


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tackarii

I thought I did too, but that was the é being pronounced. "Eu falo é falo". The computer voice makes some sounds hard to tell apart, but overall it's pretty good.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanMedeiros93

It said options I should have picked were "I speak and speaking" and "I am speaking and I speak". No.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/glamredhel

I am speaking and I SPEAKING? huh?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bemljj

I also saw this as I speak and say. but it was "I speak and talk" which makes more sense a guess.. but it did not translate to talk in pop ups!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/G.P.Niers

I got the intention right, but the actual translation wrong because ‘talk’ wasn't listed when I hovered over ‘falo’. Rest assured, ‘falar’ also means ‘to talk’ and the sentence has the obvious meaning.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hopeman7

This sentence is haunting me. No matter what content I practice, it keeps coming up. I mean, it's not that hard to learn. Why does it appear so incredibly often? More often than any other sentence so far... Other than that, Duolingo is fantastic and I'm enjoying it a lot :)!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hopeman7

Seriously, this is driving me nuts :P...!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/seaurchen

Is the pronunciation of "falo" supposed to change? Or am I just hearing it incorrectly...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zim.anael

This expression not is usually


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Harr1p0k3r

"Eu falupe falo"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rick_Lucas

O que voce quis dizer com isso?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bronsie

Is 'I keep on talking' correct?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LetiTrevizo84

Yo hablo y hablo..osea en otras palabras habló mucho, o no me para la boca....lol quiere decir algo así?
