Ola,

I'm trying to say: "I have heard that we could be entitled to a subsidy to cover part of the payment, but so far it has been refused to us".

My attempt : "Eu ouvi que podemos ter direito a um subsídio para cobrir um parte do pagamento, mas até agora temos sido recusados".

I'm not sure if this is the right way to say it, or if "podemos" is the right tense to use. Can anyone help?

Obrigada! :)

    Sure. 'Disseram-me que podemos ter direito a um subsídio para cobrir uma parte do pagamento, mas até agora tem-nos sido recusado´
    This is the European Portuguese variant. Brazilians may say it otherwise. 'Eu ouvi' is correct Portuguese and your sentence will definitely be understood, but it's not the usual way of saying it.
