Expression: “preço de banana”

» Posted by on Jan 20, 2016 in Blog, Vocabulary and Grammar | 0 comments


Banana is a very common fruit, always available and it’s also very cheap in Brazil.

So when we want to say that something is cheap, we say  it has “preço de banana”.


– Quanto custa isso?

– Custa só vinte reais. Preço de banana!


Bananas grow in “bananeiras”. “Bananeiras” are so popular in Brazil that we have a song with this name. Listen and enjoy!
