Since it’s been a while since we’ve gone way back to basics, today we’re going to look at how to greet someone in Brazilian Portuguese.
1. Olá! [oh-LAH]
This means “hello!” It’s the more formal way to say hello.
2. Oi! [oy]
This means “hi.” It’s the slightly less formal way to say hello.
3. Tudo bom? / Tudo bem? [too-doo boh-mm? / too-doo baym?]
These expressions literally mean “Is it all good?” But in English, they mean mean “how’s it going?” Also, these expressions are interchangeable.
4. Como vai você? [coh-moh vai voh-say]
This expression literally means “how do you go?” But in context, it means, “how’s it going?” or “how goes it?”
