- “Esta é a minha praia” (“this is my beach”) is comparable to the English expression “my cup of tea”, and it’s used when we are referring to something we understand very well, for which we are skilled or that is our preference. This expression is also used in the negative, (isso não é a minha praia – that is not my beach, not my cup of tea), it refers to something that is not of our area of interest, or that is difficult for us to understand or do.
- SLANG AND TRADITION - In this collection we find popular Portuguese expressions, such an important part of the immaterial heritage that is derived from language.
- Building blocks of Portuguese identity, this informal vocabulary has been transmitted from generation upon generation, populating the Portuguese phonetic imaginary with analogies and metaphors which reflect the Portuguese culture and sense of humor.
