    Hello Orlando,

    I enjoy your lessons very very much. You’re doing a great job! Thanks for that. And the additional vocabulary is really very useful. I love that.
    But in this lesson, there’s a word I couldn’t translate : uma carona. Does the ‘ona’ ending mais it a big ‘caro’ like a limousine or a big car to carry lots of people? Is it specific to Brasil ? I checked on internet but couldn’t fine any translation. Could you please help me.
    Thanks again for this amazing podcast.

      Hey Myriam. First off, thanks for the good words! Always appreciated.
      As to carona, that’s a Brazilians way to talk about giving someone a ride. “Posso te dar uma carona para a casa.” (I can give you a ride home.)
