Tip 13. Only / Just = Só

The words “only” and “just,” which correspond to solo in Spanish, translate as in Portuguese. Note that the word often appears at the end of a sentence.

English: He scored only one goal.
Spanish: Hizo solo un gol.
Portuguese: Ele fez um gol. / Ele fez um gol .

Don’t be fooled! The word solo exists in Portuguese, but it means “soil” (suelo in Spanish).
