To show excitement or appreciation for something, exclamations come in handy. Exclamations in Brazilian Portuguese are similar to those in English. The following list translates some common expressions of enthusiasm:

  • Legal! (lay-gow!) (Cool!)

  • Ótimo! (oh-chee-moh!) (Great!)

  • Que bonito! (kee boo-nee-too!) (How beautiful!)

  • Adoro! (ah-doh-roo!) (I love it!)

  • Que gostoso! (kee goh-stoh-zoo!) (How delicious!)
