Hello guys! Ready for one more Dica? Today we will show you different ways of saying years in Portuguese!
Ways of saying years in Portuguese
In Portuguese, we can say a year with a full name. For example: 1990 = mil novecentos e noventa (nineteen ninety) and we can also say years in a shorter way, for example: 1985: mil novecentos e oitenta e cinco = oitenta e cinco (eighty five). But we say a year in a short way only when we talk about the 20th century.
In Portuguese we also say Antes de Cristo (a.C) Before Christ and Depois de Cristo (d.C) After Christ when we talk about specific time periods.
