Portuguese Language Study Group

We learned a lot of new words and concepts last week, thanks especially to Paulo and to Izabel. For example, "pedereiro" can mean any kind of construction worker, not just a brick layer or stone mason.  And the word "cômodo" means room as in "os cômodos da casa," - the rooms of the house.  Even when we know how to translate a word, it's hard to know when and under what circumstances it is most commonly used, and our Brazilian friends are so helpful with that.

Na semana que vem a Jeanette vai levar a música e com certeza será uma música bonita e interesante.  O Tom leverá algo para ler.  Como sempre, todos vão sair da reunião sabendo muito mais português do que antes.

Até mais,
Neal
