||How do I Say?
we say the following sentence " Ele está estranho. Não, ele é estranho" in portuguese.
How can i say this sentence in english??
This sentence is a suggestion "He is weird. No, He is weird, but I think is not correct. This sentence doesn't show the same meaning in portugese.
If I understood it correctly, perhaps in this case you should say:
He's (been) ACTING strangely (lately)....No!..He IS strange (really)!
Is that what you were trying to say?..hope it helps!:)
