Talk:Learning a Second Language as an Adult
In Portuguese, do you always use the article with the noun? For example, in English, I would say "I am going to school" not "I am going to a school, or the school."
I think I have seen that (with a few exceptions - if the noun is a city, state, person) the article is always used.
Basically, you don't need the article (a/o/um/uma) unless you use other descriptive words to give details about the noun.
Voce e medica?
Ela e uma medica muito boa.
Voce e dentista?
Sim, eu sou o dentista que te deu uma escova dental bem roxa.
