Diálogo 16 – O Joel Quer Pipocas!


Updated February 4, 2019: As a gift to us and all Practice Portuguese fans, our friend Wayne Wilson has turned this episode into a fully-animated cartoon.

Joel goes to the cinema and is faced with various decisions… Let’s see whether his Portuguese skills are up to the challenge!

Animated by Wayne Wilson. Please help us thank him in the YouTube comments! ❤️

Note: The following playback controls just apply to the audio-only version of this episode.


  • Hey guys, could you provide a little explanation about what is going on in this sentence, ” É assim que está no computador, é assim que eu tenho de fazer.” Specifically how is “assim que” working in this sentence. Thanks.

    • Hi Kevin! In general, the easiest way to think of “assim” is “just like that”, or “that’s how..”

      So in these examples: “that’s how it is on the computer”, and “That’s how I have to do it”.

      Does that’s help? Thanks for the comment 🙂
