Grammar Lesson 5: Disappearing Reflexive Verbs, Use of Coupons
Here's a trick question for Spanish speakers: Would it be better in Portuguese to say the equivalent of Siéntate or Siéntese? Answer: Don't worry about the reflexive pronouns. Chances are that Brazilians won't use them either. In this lesson Valdo and Michelle help the rest of us to get a sense of the disappearing reflexive pronouns in Portuguese. Michelle also adds how cool she thinks the use of coupons is here in Texas as well.
