Portuguese "no" means "in the" (mandatory abbreviation of "em o"). The feminine version is "na", abbreviating "em a". "no" is indeed pronounced as nu, so it sounds close to the American pronounciation of "new" (not nyu). esta' has an accent on the a. Without it, it is another word ("this", feminine). You (formal) is o senhor and a senhora (the article o and a is necessary). The e' sound is between e and a in English.

A disclaimer first: You do not need any of this in your first 3 months of Portuguese. It may help though in not being puzzled by what others are saying. Independently of the tense of the verb (past, future, etc.), Portuguese has two "moods" for the verbs; indicative (normal, matter-of-factual) and subjunctive (tentative, conditional). You can get away with only the indicative mood in many situations, so the extra effort of learning the subjunctive mood may not be warranted in the beginning. There are 3 common tenses used in the subjunctive mood. I'll only talk here about the future tense since "quiser" is future subjunctive. The most common use of the future subjunctive is in the if statement. When you say "if you go to Brazil, you will have a good time," the verb "go" is in the subjunctive mood because it is an assumption; not a statement of fact. Similarly, "if you want" is in the subjunctive mood.

There is actually a semantic role for the use of the subjunctive. When you translate "If he accepts,..." you could say "se ele aceitar,..." (subjunctive) or "se ele aceita, ..." (indicative). The former implies that you don't know if he will accept or not. The latter implies that it has been established that he does accept, and now you are talking about the consequences. A bit subtle, but I find rather pretty. Most verbs are conjugated in a simple way to get the future subjunctive. Just use the infinitive (ficar, pagar, beber) as is (with eu, voce, ele, and ela). However, there are irregular verbs that do not follow the rule, and querer is one of them. It becomes quiser in the future subjunctive. It is an additional pain in the neck to remember the irregular conjugations. Unfortunately, the irregular verbs are among the most commonly used verbs (if it weren't the case, the natives wouldn't remember the irregular conjugations ). BTW, "if it weren't" is in the subjunctive mood in English .

When I put mora into the Altavista translator it came back as "But I know where it deferred payment") 12. Where does he live? - onde ele mora? 13. Which is his address - qual seu endereo? 14. He lives far away - Ele mora longe 15. Is it located far away? - Fica longe? 16. It is close - Fica perto 17. On Cabral street - na rua cabral 18.

What is your name? - Como voc se chama? 22. My name is John - Eu me chamo John. 23. I live - Eu moro Here is a long answer to the morar versus viver issue:

There are several examples of English-to-Portuguese translations that are 2-to-1 or 1to-2. An example of 2-to-1 is "do" and "make" both translating to "fazer". A 2-to-1 is not a problem for an English speaker learning Portuguese because, in some sense, you get two words for the price of one . You do lose a bit of expressive power, though. A 1-to-2 is a problem, since you typically confuse the two translations because you initially are not used to the two different "shades" of the meaning. The most troublesome example of 1-to-2 is "to be" translating into "estar" (as in eu estou) and "ser" (as in eu sou). The example at hand is "to live" translating into "morar" and "viver". "morar" has the limited connotation of "to reside" while "viver" has the wider connotations of living. Therefore, "I live in an apartment" translates well into "Eu moro num apartamento", but "I live to travel" would be "Eu vivo pra viajar", not "Eu moro pra viajar". By the same token, a 1-to-2 has the beneft of more expressive power. After using the two words for a while, it will dawn upon you that there are really two distinct meanings that English speakers merge in the verb "to live". Lesson 24.

Comment about "para aprender (I am not hearing the (A) in aprender. It sounds like just prender." Actually, the "a" you are not hearing is the last "a" of para, not the "a" of aprender. In spoken Portuguese, when two vowels meet in this way, the second vowel takes over (in continuous speech). For instance, para observar (in order to observe) would sound like "parobservar". Lesson 26.

1. That is fine in that case goodbye - Esta bem ento at logo. (In that case didn't translate but they seemed to be using in that case as the word "then." That got me thinking back to Spanish and the word entonces. I did a search for then and came back with ento. Hope that is correct. It sounds like it is being pronounced en-tal) 2.

There are two other types of syllables that are also pronounced a-w : 1. "am" as in "falam" (they speak) which is nasalized, but not emphasized. 2. "al" as in "tal" (such) which is not nasalized.
