TRANSCRIÇÃO DO EPISÓDIO 03 DO PODCAST APRENDA INGLÊS ONLINE:
Teacher Ca: Podcast – Aprenda Inglês Online. The best way to improve your English.
“Welcome” to aprenda Inglês online podcast.
M: Very nice.
Teacher Ca: Hello. I’m your hostess Teacher Ca. Na nossa dica de hoje, vamos falar de duas palavras que significam: pronto, pronta, prontos, prontas, em Português. O Ready e o Done.
M: Are you Ready?
F: What’s done, is done.
Teacher Ca: Alguma vez ao falar “estou pronta para ir a escola,” você já se perguntou: eu uso o Done ou o Ready? Um pouco confuso, não concordam? “I’m done to go to the school or I’m ready to go to the School?” Já teve alguma dúvida parecida com essa? Para falar sobre estas dúvidas que surgem em nossas cabeças, conversei com o professor Justin, do Cambly – a melhor plataforma para se aprender Inglês com nativos. Vamos conferir como foi essa aula?
M: Let it begin.
Justin: Hi, there. Can you hear me speaking?
Teacher Ca: Yes. How are you?
Justin: I’m good. My name is Justin and I’m from Florida, originally. How about you? Where are you from?
Teacher Ca: I’m from Brazil.
Justin: Cool. Are you practicing English for working or, maybe, for traveling?
Teacher Ca: For everything, I think.
Justin: For everything, good. What type of job you do?
Teacher Ca: I’m an English teacher.
Justin: That’s cool. What age group do you teach, for what people?
Teacher Ca: All of them. I need your help. Can you clarify something to me? Can you tell me the difference between Done and Ready?
Justin: Done and Ready? Ok. I’m trying to think in an example. Done may be used in situations when you’re finishing a project or some type of task. And Ready, I think most people would use it when they’re able to do something new. Starting something new.
Teacher Ca: No início, o professor Justin já foi logo dizendo que usamos o “Done” para situações que estão concluídas, ou quando terminamos de fazer algo. E o “Ready”, quando estamos prontos para fazer algo novo.
Justin: Done verses Ready. Is there any type of context you’re confused about how to use it?
Teacher Ca: Not really. Because the translation in Portugues is the same. I don’t want my students to translate, I want them to understand, that’s why I’m asking you. I wish I could take this out of their mind.
Justin: I get it. I think that’s the one of the confusing things with English. We have a lot of words that have
many definitions. Often they can be used as sinonymus or in a anonymous way.
Done and Ready have different definitions, but I think they also can be similar to each other.
For example, I can say: I’m Done with the university. Meaning I’m finished with it. But you cannot say: I’m Ready with the university. Does that make sense?
Teacher Ca: Ele deu o exemplo de: “I’m Done with the university.” Significa que ele concluiu, terminou a universidade. Neste case, não se usa o Ready, porque não fará sentido.
But if I was asking you to go out to get dinner, I could say: are you Done working? And you could say: Yes, I’m Done working and I’m Ready to go.
So, usually Done means that you’re finishing doing a task. Something is over. And Ready, is used when you’re ready for doing something new.
So, sometimes, you can use them in a same way, but most of the time, you cannot. I’m trying to think another way for using them.
Teacher Ca: Ok. I think you got the best definition for me. I think it’s easier the way you said.
Justin: That’s how I would think of it. If I was trying to express it in my mind, that’s the way I would think of those two together. I’m thinking another way to use it, for example: I’m Done eating or I’m Ready to start eating.
Teacher Ca: Aqui ele já disse: “I’m Done eating.” Finished action. Terminou, concluiu. E depois ele falou: “I’m Ready to start eating.” Pronto pra começar a comer.
Yes. So when you’re Done, it’s like you completed, finished, right?
Justin: Yes. That’s the way you use it when the situation is over, you’ve completed it.
Teacher Ca: Ok. And when we talk about Ready it’s like starting something new, a new task, a new thing, right?
Justin: Yes. Or when you’re free to do something. For example, when I’m late and my family or friends say: Are you Ready? Let’s go. And the I say: Yes. I’m Ready. It can, also, be used when you doing something like dinner or coffee, you can say: It’s Ready, let’s eat. It means it’s Ready to eat.
Teacher Ca: Ok. As you said, I use Done for finished things, completed tasks, right? Could I say: breakfast it’s Done.
Justin: You can, actually. That happens when the words become similar, it’s almost synonymous. You would have to imply that you’re cooking breakfast. For example, if I was waiting for you and I say: I’m so hungry. When can we eat? You can say: breakfast is Done. Come eat it. It means that I’m Done cooking it.
Justin diz no seu exemplo: “breakfast is Done”; o café da manhã está pronto, que neste caso, o Done e o Ready funcionam como sinônimos. Mas é claro que precisamos saber o contexto da frase, para realmente entendermos que o café da manhã está pronto.
Teacher Ca: : It almost, even, sounds like that the breakfast is already been finished eating.
Justin: I would’ve understood like this. If someone says: breakfast is Done. It would sound like if this person had cleaned everything up. Everything is finished.
Justin: Yes. It could mean that too. But I think that is where it really depends on the context we used it in.
Let’s say that your family is waiting for you in the living room and you’re in the kitchen, you can say: it’s done. Let’s it. Meaning: It’s Ready. Even though, technically, it’s not Done. But we still use this word that way. There is a lot of strange situations in English where we’ll say something that, technically, does not make sense. But we’ll still say it that way.
Teacher Ca: Ok. Like: my homework is done. Can I use it this way?
Justin: Yes. It means that you finished doing it. There’s nothing left to do. We wouldn’t say: my homework is Ready.
Teacher Ca: To hand it in?
Justin: You could say Ready, but that would be like if I was Ready to give it to you or give to the teacher. However, you wouldn’t want just to say: my homework is Ready, because, then, I would say: Ready for what? Ready to do it, or Ready to hand it in? You would have to complete the sentence. But when I say: my homework is Done. It means that it’s finished.
Teacher Ca: Ok. So it’s better using, Done?
Justin: Yes. Because I wouldn’t have any question about it. I would know that you have finished your homework.
Teacher Ca: Ok. I think you got it. You helped me a lot.
Justin: Was that something you were discussing with your students recently?
Teacher Ca: Not really. Sometimes they come up with this kind of questions and I think: I need more help to explain them that and make sure they understand it.
Justin: Yes. I know what you mean. It can be complicated.
Teacher Ca: Ok. Thanks a lot. Sometimes I ask for questions. Thank you so much for helping me.
Justin: Yes. I’m available a lot. I hope see you in the future.
Teacher Ca: Ok. See you. Bye bye.
Justin: Bye bye.
Teacher Ca: Espero que tenham gostado do nosso bate-papo com o professor Justin, do Cambly. Guardem a dica dele: Usamos o Done para algo que está concluído ou finalizado. For instance: I’m done with my homework; eu terminei meu dever de casa. E usamos o Ready para dizer que estamos prontos para começar a fazer algo. For example: I’m Ready to go to the mall; estou pronta para ir ao Shopping.
