Como digo em inglês eu sou a cara do meu pai (áudio)

What’s up, everyone?

Hoje tem mais um post baseado em conversa do Twitter (veja o Inglês Online no Twitter). Umas três semanas atrás eu perguntei lá:

Who do you look like the most: your father or your mother? Com quem você se parece mais: seu pai ou sua mãe?

As respostas foram ótimas porque ilustraram 3 situações diferentes:

  • I look nothing like my family Eu não pareço nada com a minha família
  • I’m a celebrity look-alike Eu sou sósia de uma celebridade
  • I am the spitting image of my father Eu sou a cara do meu pai

Então, resolvi aproveitar os exemplos e falar disso em áudio.

Transcrição

Hi everyone, this is Ana Luiza of Inglesonline.com.br and today I am going to talk a little bit about ‘looking like someone else’. This audio is part of a post published on December 1st, 2009 so to see all the contents of this post, including a transcript, please go to inglesonline.com.br .

So I wanted to post about this because about three weeks ago, I think, I asked this question on Twitter: Who do you look like the most: your mother or your father?

And I actually got a few answers to this question and I wanted to share them with you. One person said something like I look nothing like my family. So, it can happen. People look at you and at your biological parents, and no one can tell that you’re all related because you look nothing like them. It happens.

Another person said something like I am the spitting image of my father. This expression, spitting image, or spitting image – there’s a double ‘t’ in there – means that someone looks very much like someone else. So in the case of this person – it was a guy who said that -he looks a lot like his father, he looks very much like his father, or… you could say he and his father look very much alike, they look very much alike. So we can use this expression, he is the spitting image of his father.

And then a third person, and this was a woman… She said People tell me that I look a lot like Ivete Sangalo. So Ivete Sangalo is a celebrity, she’s a Brazilian celebrity and there’s an expression that is very common, especially when you look a lot like a celebrity, and this expression is look-alike. So we can say, this person is an Ivete Sangalo look-alike. In Portuguese we would say ‘sósia’, ‘Ela é sósia da Ivete Sangalo’. So we could say, she’s an Ivete Sangalo look-alike.

In my case I look more like my mother. Yeah, we are, we are both brunettes. So what about you, who do you look like? Are you a celebrity look-alike? Are you the spitting image of your father, are you the spitting image of your mother? Please tell us in the comment section, and talk to you next time.

This is Ana Luiza of inglesonline.com.br .

    People say I’m the spitting image of my father – I have a couple of objections about that. I might say, however, that I took after some of my mother’s “outstanding” behaviours, like dozing off over Biology textbooks.

    • Ana Luiza says:

      Oto,
      Yeah, I disagree myself when some people say I resemble too much either of my parents.

  • Cayo Canette says:

    Hi,, Ana how have you been ?
    It’s my first time here and I wanna say for you Thank you so much
    because I finally got to understand this episodio my first episodio
    so thank you so much again and

    I look like my mother not the most but a little.

    and this expression ” the spitting image of someone else ” dosen’t it sound stranger?
    because spitting means ” cuspido ” will be as the guy above said ” ser a imagem cúspida de alguém .. ( não seria rúde de se dizer )

    • Ana Luiza says:

      Hi Cayo,

      Yes, it’s casual and informal.

      Esse foi o 1o episódio que vc ouviu, ou o 1o que vc compreendeu? Parabéns!!

      • Cayo Canette says:

        É o primeiro episódio que eu ouvi e compreendi perfeitamente, e já no outro dia eu compreendi melhor sem precisar do textinho. .. To feliz hahahah

  • Marco Silva says:

    Uma das formas mais polidas de se dizer é ” You have your father’s assemblance”. Dizer que você é “the spitting image” of someone pode soar um pouco rude para ouvidos mais sensíveis ( ser a imagem “cuspida” de alguém)

  • Juliana ; - ) says:

    Hi Ana!

    My family says that I’m the spitting image of my father, but thank God I have my mother’s personality.
