Here’s another word that you may not find in books and magazines too often, but that Brazilians use regularly: fuleiro.
In this post I tell you what fuleiro means, I give examples using the word, and you can learn the pronunciation of fuleiro with the video below.
Fuleiro is an adjective that means:
- of poor, bad quality
- not reliable
Because it is an adjective, it agrees in gender and number with the word that it describes.
Examples using the fuleiro:
- Esse sapato é fuleiro. Comprei há duas semanas e já está parecendo velho. = These shoes are of bad quality. I bought them two weeks ago and they already look old.
- Que bolsas fuleiras! Não vão durar muito. = How cheap these purses are! They won’t last long.
- Alberto é muito fuleiro. Não dá pra contar com ele pra nada.
