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!

1 – ____________ o abacaxi.

2 – ____________ as fatias do abacaxi em pedaços pequenos.

3 – ____________ os pedaços do abacaxi e o açúcar em um copo.

I’ve just started online classes with Prof. Ana Carolina & she is the absolute best! It’s my first time learning Portuguese and I was speaking full sentences in the first class. Obrigada!

Small classes, diverse accents, and engaging professors make Rio & Learn Online a fantastic choice! I've been thrilled with my experience at Rio & Learn Online so far. The small class sizes (around 1-3 others students) allow for personalized attention and plenty of opportunities to practice speaking. What's more, having different professors throughout the program exposes you to various accents, preparing you for real-world interactions. I opted for the full-time program, which involves 2 hours of daily learning from Monday to Friday. After just over 12 weeks, I can confidently say my Portuguese has improved dramatically. The professors are incredibly engaging and encourage students to utilize real-life examples, solidifying the learning process. While I'm only halfway through the program, I'm confident in recommending Rio & Learn Online to anyone seeking to learn Portuguese in a supportive and effective environment. I've gone from being a complete beginner (only knowing hi and bye) to holding conversations - and I'm excited to see how much further I can progress! I'll be back with another review after completing the program, but for now: Rio & Learn Online - highly recommended!

Rio & Learn e um novo jeito de ensinar a lingua portuguesa. Puro prazer e muito eficiente. Quanto mais alunos na aula mais vida. Eu aconselho voces escolher as aulas grupais por porque sao interativas: rir, falar, argumentar, compartir uma lingua!

Après 3 semaines que je suis dans cette école et je peux déjà parler portugais. Certe avec des erreurs mais j'ai fait des progrès fulgurant. En plus, du Lundi au Vendredi l'ecole propose des activitées qu'il appelle "Rio Live" ce qui permet de visiter en même temps Rio tout en parlant Portugais et de rencontrer des gens😃 Toute l'équipe est genial et est prêts à aider si besoin 😁
I've been taking the group online courses with Rio&Learn for 2 months. They offer a fantastic way to learn Portuguese and get speaking practice if you don't live in Brazil. The teachers are engaging and are able to adjust their level of Portuguese to whatever level you are at. Obrigado!

C'est vraiment fantastique...RioAndLearn. Les cours de portugais...ça vaut vraiment la peine. Les cours ont lieu du lundi au vendredi, (de 9h à 13h) et en après midi, ce sont des activités libres en groupe. (Soccer de plage, volleyball , excursions, visites des lieux touristiques, etc) Vendredi soir, on est allé à Lapa, un quartier nocturne de Rio. C'est quelque chose à voir! Des rues bondées de monde, des orchestres, des discothèques...Allô les décibels! L'apprentissage du portugais se fait en immersion, aussi bien en salle de classe que dans les activités extérieures organisées par Rio&Learn. On est plongé dans la langue portugaise et la culture Brésilienne.... Obligé de parler portugais....🫡 Je le recommande. Pierre Pedro, Montréal, Canada
