Conversation in the Bank

Catarina – Olá. Como está? 

João – Estou muito bem, obrigado. E você?

C – Também, obrigada. E como se chama?

J – Chamo-me João. João Félix.

C – Bom dia, senhor João. Eu sou a Catarina. Prazer em conhecê-lo. 

J – O prazer é todo meu. 

C – Em que posso ser útil? 

J – Queria abrir uma conta à ordem. 

C – Ah! Falei com o senhor ao telefone esta manhã, não foi? 

J – Isso mesmo! Mudei-me para Portugal, no mês passado. E este banco parece-me uma boa opção.

C – E tem razão! A economia está muito instável, mas o “Banco Feliz” só faz investimentos prudentes.

J – Muito bem. E é preciso preencher algum impresso?

C – Sim, vinte e cinco.

J –  Isso tudo?

C – Pois. Bem-vindo a Portugal!

Catarina – Hello. How are you?

João – I’m fine, thank you. And yourself?

C – Me too, thank you. And what’s your name?

J – My name is João. João Félix.

C – Good morning, Mr. João. Pleased to meet you. I’m Catarina. 

J – The pleasure is all mine.

C – How can I help?

J – I would like to open a new current account.

C – Ah! I spoke to you on the phone this morning, didn’t I?

J – That’s right! I moved to Portugal last month. And this bank seems like a good option.

C – And you’re right! The economy is very unstable, but “Banco Feliz” only makes prudent investments.

J – Very well. And do I need to fill out a form?

C – Yes, twenty-five.

J – All that?

C – Yes. Welcome to Portugal!

    This is genius! You can hear clearly, how the sounds are changed when they are pronounced in the words and then in the whole sentences! This is what I really needed! Thank you so much!!! 🙂 Greetings from Poland 🙂
