Escolher Uma Casa

Choosing a Home

Catarina and Filipe are a young couple looking to buy a house together. Will they find the perfect home?


    • People use it in both senses. They most often mean “plenty” or “very”. One usual giveaway that it’s being used as ‘enough’ is that the word is preceded by the definite article ‘o’, as in “o bastante”. Here are some examples:

      – Este item é bastante caro! (This item is very expensive)
      – Eu tenho bastante tempo. (I’ve got plenty of time)
      – Ela tem bastantes livros. (She has many books)

      – Eu ganho o bastante. (I earn enough)
      – Nós trabalhamos o bastante. (We work enough)
