Ben Learns Portuguese: Episode 2

Benjamin Papac learns Portuguese

Hey everyone! This week, I dove into Unit 2: Greetings and Introductions. I learned a lot about food, a little about friends and family, and a few things about food. Just kidding.

Unit 2 taught me a lot of foundational language that builds on what I learned in Unit 1. Now I can talk about meu pai, minha irmã e minha mãe, and introduce you to meus amigos.

The weird thing I noticed about possessives in Portuguese is the conjugation of meu/minha. Turns out, you conjugate the Portuguese word for “my,” based on the object to which you’re referring!

Thanks for tuning in, but I need to go back to minha cozinha, porque eu estou cozinhando.

Be back soon.
-Benjamin
