Yes, you use "Good Evening" when you start a conversation, and "Good Night" when you finish a conversation.
I can only think of this video i saw of a guy strolling up suddenly, looking striaght into the camera in a montone voice say " Good evening "
Using the speaker button, the E in 'noite' is not pronounced, but hovering over the word, the E is pronounced. Is the pronunciation optional?
yes, you pronounce E like "i" in Portuguese ("ee" in English) when it is at the end of a word.
does it depends if it is a boa noite (farwell) or boa noite (welcome)? I mean does it depends on the situation? I think that in English "good evening" is a greeting (welcome) and "good night" is a Farwell, right?
Is there any difference between good evening and good night in Portuguese?? Or does this one phrase (boa noite) carry two meanings?
Thanks Paulo. He might have been confused because in French "bonne nuit" means "good evening" where as "bonsoir" means "good night". (And yet it seems as though it should be the opposite! lol)
