Thanks to my efforts, my personal budget is in the black, and as soon as I finish the Present Perfect Course, I hope that I can get another great course of yours.

Good for you, Mario! It takes a lot of effort to keep a budget in the black, for sure!

My personal budget is in the black, but not for so long – my vacation is comming.

My personal budget is at the limit. Hopefully, next year things will get better; If God wills!

There is always a chance to improve with a New Year! 🙂

It is important – and fun – to get to know a little bit more about this new trend that has taken Brazil by storm 🙂 Oh, and in Portuguese we also have a verb (cunhar) that means both “to make coins” and “to invent new words or phrases”.

Cool, Aline! I just learned a new word in Portuguese! Thank you for sharing that!

Tim, As you Know I was fired and my budget was  in the red. But, as you also know  I got a new job, so I hope my budget will be in the black before the end of the year. Please could you teach me how to say in English: “colocar as contas em ordem” ou “liquidar as dívidas”? Thanks.

hello, José!

liquidar as dívidas = pay off my
colocar as contas em ordem = catch up on my bills; get my budget in order; etc.

Thanks again!

Hi Tim

My personal budget is in the red, because I don’t have money to pay my bills.
