THANKS AND GO AHEAD.

Olá Tim muuuuuito boa a dica e gosto muito dessa tradução literal pois assim sabemos melhor como pensar como um americano para responder algumas coisas que não podem ser respondidas igual falamos no português.

Tim, a little every day!
Over again, thank you.

Thx for one more podcast! It’s being valuable to me!

Hi, Tim! I think the best translation in Portuguese for “keep up with e-mails”, as you said, is “responder os e-mails”. There’s another similar usage in English like “to keep up with the payments” which we should not translate as “acompanhar os pagamentos”, but “pagar em dia” or “manter os pagamentos em dia”.
Have a nice day.

Good morning dude !!! Just wanna say that these tips are very usefull and handy… I liked your Webinario with Ulysses; i could see and and hear your portuguese speaking… You sound like a native already !!! Keep up the good work man and don´t forget : keep on the lane !! Nice day, dude.

Great job with the sentences, Sergio! This hot weather is great for the air conditioner business!
