    Hi Orlando:

    I have listened to first line of the dialogue over and over again, at regular speed, half-speed and even quarter-speed.

    I’m pretty sure the speaker is saying “mensagem” in the singular.

    I know in the lesson portion, you are definitely saying “mensagens”, in the plural.

    Enlighten me, please. Is there some fine point of grammar here?

    Thanks,
    Arthur

      Uau Arthur, você é bom demais! E tem razão, a Sandra disse “mensagem” no singular e não “mensagens” no plural! Some day I’m going to hire you as an editor!
