Dose of the Day

A nossa dica de hoje aproveita uma “brasileirada” bem comum: Take coffee, take ice-cream.

O melhor verbo, seja para sólidos ou líquidos, é have.

Vejamos alguns exemplos:

  • Comi carne: I had meat.
  • Bebi suco: I had juice.
  • Coma um lanche: Have a snack.

Eat é só para sólidos (eat meat, eat fruit, eat rice, eat potatoes, eat ice-cream).

Drink é só para líquidos (drink water, drink coffee, drink beer).

O verbo take é usado para remédios. Também pode ser usado para drogas ou veneno.

Vejamos alguns exemplos:

  • Tome esse remédio: Take this medicine.
  • Ela tomou dois comprimidos: She took two pillsComprimido (s).
  • Eles estão tomando drogas: They are taking drugs.
  • Ele tomou veneno: He took poison.

Agora vamos falar de refeições. Mais uma vez, o verbo melhor é have, mas o verbo eat também pode ser usado:

  • Tomar o café da manhã: Have breakfast (eat breakfast)
  • Almoçar: Have lunch (eat lunch)
  • Jantar: Have dinner (eat dinner)

Breakfastlunch são verbos, mas são usados com menos frequência. Já no caso de dinner, temos o verbo to dine, mas também não é muito comum.
