Making appointments in Brazilian Portuguese

October 14, 2016

 

 

So you’re already pretty good at Portuguese and want to improve your business language – If you are at an advanced level, this post is for you!

 

We’re going to start with how to make appointments in a business scenario.

Remember that these are ready-made sentences that are going to help you because you don’t need to reinvent the wheel – why not study and use these sentences?
You may modify them to suit your own needs.
Vamos lá!

  • A Telefonista / Recepcionista – The operator

O senhor/senhora/você gostaria de  marcar um horário? – Would you like to make an appointment?
Estamos sem horário esta semana. – We’re really busy this week.
Sinto muito, estamos lotados na quarta. – I’m so sorry, Wednesday is full.
O senhor pode na sexta? – Could you make it on Friday?
Na sexta fica melhor para você? – Is Friday better for you?
Eu ligo se alguém ligar cancelando. – I’ll call you if there are any cancellations.
Posso encaixá-lo hoje à tarde. – I could squeeze you in for this afternoon.
O que é melhor para você: de manhã ou à tarde? – What’s better for you: the morning of afternoon?
Às dez horas fica bom? – How’s 10am for you?
Então, posso marcar para às dez? – So, can I put you down for 10am?
OK, nos vemos na sexta, então. – OK, so we’ll see you Friday, then.

 

  • Marcando um horário – A person making the appointment

Oi, eu gostaria de marcar um horário para ver…  – Hi. I’d like to make an appointment to see…

Você tem algo disponível na sexta-feira às dez? – Do you have anything available on Friday at 10am?
Na quinta fica muito ruim para mim. – Thursday is really bad for me.
Pode ser outro dia? – Can it be some other day?
Será que você consegue me encaixar hoje? – Can you maybe squeeze me in today?

Por hoje é só - That's all for today.

Nos vemos em breve! - See you soon!


*Senhor e Senhora é mais formal do que você, porém dependendo do local um ou outro pode ser usado.
