How to Write the Pineapple Juice Recipe

Writing a recipe is an art! You have to make the recipe sound so good that the readers want to follow your recipe by making their mouths water for the resulting food or drink. So, first you have to be convincing and practical. Choose your words well, be brief and focused on the correct instructions to make sure it’s clearly explained. Got it?

For this we use a lot of the Imperative Verb Mode in Portuguese (you’ll have to master it!). Let’s see how to do it, step by step just like we do in our RioLIVE! Activities. Prepare the ingredients and let’s make some refreshing pineapple juice!

Pineapple Juice Recipe Step by Step

1 – Descasque o abacaxi. 1 – Peel the pineapple
2 – Corte as fatias em pequenos pedaços.
2 – Dice it in small pieces.
3 – Ponha os pedaços de abacaxi no liquidificador.
3 – Put the pineapple pieces in the blender.
4 – Deixe o abacaxi batendo no liquidificador até ficar bem líquido.
4 – Blend the pineapple until becomes liquid.
5 – Ponha uns cubos de gelo.
5 – Add some ice cubes.
6 – Bata mais um pouco até dissolver totalmente o gelo.
6 – Blend it a little bit more, until the ice is totally dissolved.
7 – Ponha no copo e beba à vontade.
7 – Serve in a glass and drink as much as you like.

Now it’s your turn! 

Now that you’ve learned how to make pineapple juice, we have a challenge for you. You’ll complete the recipe of pineapple caipirinha. Find the right verbs for each instruction and conjugate in the imperative tense. To do this you have to take into account what you’ve just learned above (with the pineapple juice recipe) and combine this with what you know about how to make a typical caipirinha. If you never made one, take a look at our Dica about caipirinhas. Let’s go!

2 – ____________ as fatias do abacaxi em pedaços pequenos.

Had an incident with a holiday. I selected Monday and Wednesday for my classes, since I can’t attend classes on other days. Due to holiday one of the lessons was scheduled on Friday. I warned about this issue on Tuesday, 3 days before the lesson, but manager answered in a rude way that they can’t do anything and blamed me that this is my fault I didn’t warn earlier. Teacher is asking their students to give good grades to the course on a second lesson. This is not teachers fault. Probably managers ask her to do this. Maybe my grade will change. Only time will show. At the moment as is.

Estudar portugués online com a escola Río & learn é muito gratificante pra mim, pois as professoras são amorosas. As aulas são engraçadas, com muita prática falando português brasileiro. Também eu posso conhecer pessoas de outros países e outras culturas. Eu sinto que moro no Brasil quando eu estou em aula!!
Raccomando tantissimo! Ho fatto lezioni private e il mio portoghese migliora a vista d'occhio. Fluente in 4 mesi grazie a questa scuola <3

I took a one week in-person course and had an amazing experience. It was intensive and definitely highly recommended! I appreciate the great, caring and highly professional team : Diogo for your awesome and energetic lectures and dedication. The lessons outside the classroom were very engaging and a useful way to immerse into local life. Thanks Laise, Marta and Dayane for the great support and smooth coordination. I look forward to taking the online sessions next!

I joined the online classes 1 month ago and I am loving the experience. Shout-out to Professora's Dani & Nathalia,they're amazing! The classes are interesting,focused and the teachers are very patient. They also do extra online activities outside the class schedule to really boost your learning in a fun, engaging environment. My speaking proficiency is improving faster than ever before compared to other classes I tried with other schools. The staff are very organised, communicate well and I think the cost is excellant value for money. Vamos lá!

Followed one week of group classes in Rio de Janeiro, I had no prior experience with Portuguese. The classes were really good, fun even (we laughed a lot) and the material is very well chosen. The after activities (Rio Live) as well were so fun and the teachers (Diogo) always made you feel comfortable and had a lot of patience. We even went for lunch together to learn about this subject. I really loved this way of teaching. I feel like I have a good base of the language and I can understand so much more now.
I have taken online courses twice now with Rio & Learn. In both group and private lessons the instruction was excellent. Classes were well-planned and the instructors were responsive and engaging. If I ever have the chance I will definitely sign up for their in person classes.

Ich war vor 4 Jahren dort und habe dort die Basics in Portugiesisch gelernt. Sehr praxisnaher Unterricht mit vielen Aktivitäten und Spaß. Mir gefällt dieser spielerische Ansatz sehr und ich konnte einiges lernen. Absolute Empfehlung!

This is the best language school ever. I spent one month, started with no portguese whatsoever, and now I can hold basic conversations and understand most of what people are saying. My progress was pretty amazing thanks to all the teachers who are AMAZING. I can't stress enough how nice, helpful and fun they are. In addition to classes in the mornings, the school offers different kinds of activities every afternoon outside the school. It's great to practice portuguese outside and also discover some great places in Rio as well as many different kind of fun activities. I made great friends there and had so many good laughs. Often the teachers also take you out of the classroom for the entire class or half of it to make it more entertaining. I truly recommend this school that was way more than a school for me. Thanks to everyone there, especially Diogo, Lais and Guliana for everything.

Rio & Learn is a great space to learn Portuguese. The amazing teachers and support staff create a wonderful and intimate environment to learn, through a varied set of mediums: class lectures, out and about lesson around copacabana, post-school activities as well as a range of 121 teaching options. I highly recommend this school!!!
