"I eat bread."

Translation:Eu como pão.

October 21, 2013



The technique I use to pronounce Portuguese words or parts of words is to select an Englsh word with a similar sound and modify the English sound as necessary. For "pão" I se!ect "song", substitute a " p" for the "s" and go light on the "n" and the "g". The feedback I get from native speakers is a passing grade. I believe the technique should work for any combination of languages. I am a native English speaker.

why do you use como instead of come

Because you have to conjugate the verb for the person you are referring to. The same reason why I'm English you say "I eat" and "He eats". If in doubt just search for Portuguese verb conjugations and memorise the present to start off with.

One ideia for pronunciation on (it is the same of song). It's speak for nose, Brazilian say for little child : O som é o mesmo de quando você tampa o nariz
