O Brasil está “mandando ver” com a produção do iPad

O Brasil está “mandando ver” na produção do iPad (produto da Apple Computers) – e está fazendo isto justamente na cidade de Jundiaí, onde nós moramos!! 🙂

Você saberia dizer “mandar ver” (na produção de algo) em inglês?

Bom, para se dizer, de uma forma informal, que uma firma está produzindo algo rapidamente e em grande quantidade, você poderia dizer…

That company is cranking out (name of product).

Para se dizer, também de uma forma informal, que um autor está escrevendo prolificamente, você poderia dizer…

That author is cranking out books.

(O verbo “to crank”, sozinho, significa “girar uma manivela”.)

Como se diria, então, que uma firma está “mandando ver” na produção de algum produto?

Assista ao vídeo abaixo e aprenda este phrasal verb.

Já lhe aviso que um dos apresentadores fala BEM rápido!  Vai ser bom para você ouvir “relaxed speech”!

Você vai gostar da forma que ela pronuncia a palavra Jundiaí. 🙂

Wow,  I didn’t know that! I hope we get lower prices in these Ipads made in Brazil. By the way, I liked their speech, informal and easy to understand. 

I hope so, too, Su; but, unfortunately, I don't think that will happen. (I hope I'm wrong, though. 🙂 )

what about cranking away???

I guess cranking away and cranking out are synonyms.

They are similar, but used differently.

You crank away. (period) "Manda bala/ver!" (na produção de alguma coisa)
Or You crank away *at* something.

However,
You crank out *something*. (a product)

Great post! It helped a lot! I hope to crank away at studying phrasal verbs in order to keep up with my English 🙂

Good luck with you studies, Fernando!
