Beginning 15: I’m Fat

MP3 Audio (Lesson) | MP3 Audio (Dialog)

It’s one of life’s great challenges, do you buy extra large to feel more comfortable or do you buy a large to not have to tell the world that you are getting a little fatter? Truth told, you are looking good either way, and today we learn how to talk about that in Portuguese.

 A: Você vai comprar essa camisa?
Are you going to buy this shirt?
  B: Não, estou gorda, hoje não quero comprar nada.
No, I’m fat, I don’t want to buy anything today.
  A: Você não está gorda, e essa camisa é linda, mulher.
You aren’t fat, and this shirt is beautiful, girl.
  B: Tá, o G eu vou provar, mas o GG de jeito nenhum.
OK, I’ll try a large, but there is no way I am going to try extra large.

    I was using experimentar when asking to try clothes on in Brazil. Is provar more popular among the people? Come to think of it I used experimentar about tasting food too. Is one better than the other in terms of food & trying clothes or are they the same? Thanks!

      Hi Joe,
      Indeed, “experimentar” would work in each of those instances (clothing and food), but “provar”, it seems to me, might work better as the normal, average, day-to-day way of talking about foods we try and clothing we put on.
