    I had a friend once tell me that over 30 yearsd ago. He was Brasileiro ( from Salvador de Bahia). I have always wondered if that was an acceptable way of saying TE EXTRAN~O or TE ECHO DE MENOS WITHIN Spanish.
    Thanks in Advance

    Hello dinis:
    If he is a Brazilian man he talks Portuguese, not Spanish.
    I am moving this thread to the Português forum.
    You can say: Sinto saudades de você.
    Wait for more opinions.

    La frase en español efectivamente significa te extraño o echo de menos. En portugués no sé el significado.

    Hello, Dinis.

    I'm not sure whether you're asking about Spanish or Portuguese. If it's the latter, take a look at this thread.

    As Araceli has said it, one possible way is
    ' sinto (sentia) saudades de você'.


    Sinto muito a sua ausência. (sinto = present)
    or: Sentia muito a sua ausência. (sentia = imperfect)
    (missed you a lot).
    In a literal way it 'd be: I've felt your absence.

    Thank you, Eloisa, I suspected that it could be used in Spanish correctly. And thanks Araceli for sending it over to the Portuguese. I wonder if that is where it actually derives from.

    In Portuguese, you should say "Tenho saudades de você" or "Estou com saudades de você", or "sinto saudades de você-sinto saudades suas". The latter is more formal.
    That sentence is equivalent to "I miss you" in English.

    "Sentia muito a tua/sua ausência" também se pode dizer...
