Emergency Portuguese

You never know when you might be in an emergency situation. When you’re traveling by air there are some emergency Portuguese words you may need to use. In this lesson you’ll learn how to understand the emergency procedures on the plane in Portuguese, as well as other key pieces of information.  

You’ll learn how to ask for things in Portuguese and how to speak to airport officials. Soon you’ll know exactly what to say on the plane and at the airport to make it easier and safer for you to travel in Brazil.

Pronouncing emergency Portuguese words

Let's get started...

Imagine you are on a flight from America to Brazil. It’s a long way, so make sure you know how to ask for a drink or an extra blanket in case you are cold. It’s also important to know what “Por favor, apertar o cinto” means. Repeat the new words aloud to practice your pronunciation.

Once you arrive at the airport you will have to collect your luggage. Simply follow the signs to the “Coleta de bagagem” and make your way to the “Controle de passaporte”. Listen to the Audio link below to hear the pronunciation…

Hopefully you won’t need to use the following phrases, but it’s still useful to know them.

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed the lesson.

Até breve!
