It’s the little things that are going to get you in trouble in Brazil.
Something as innocent as saying, “Oh ok” when someone is talking can cause confusion to a Brazilian.
Watch the video to see why.
The reason why it’s confusing to say, “Oh ok,” to a Brazilian is because the sound “Ô” is used to get someone’s attention.
If you say “oh ok,” you’re signaling to them that they should look at you. That’s probably not what you meant to do.
To say “Oh OK,” like a Brazilian you should say, “Ah tá,” which is shortened from, “Ah está bom.”
Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.
