Portuguese term or phrase: O pessoal nao deve ter o sentimento de estar a falar mais
Feedback on a human resources workshop. This is one in a series of slides.

My query: Does 'a falar mais' mean talking too much?

English translation:talk too much
Explanation:
To answer your query, I should say yes. But "falar demais" or "falar demasiado" or even "falar a mais" would come more naturally to me! Seems a funny mode of expression. But I cant think what else they mean. Hope I've helped.

Thanks for your contribution. I don't intend to enter this in the glossary, as it seems as though the person has left out a letter or two. Thanks!

  -> possibly, Vivian, but does it look as "a" has been left out in error?

Expression


Explanation:
It could be an expression also. Like "not enough words to say what it is."

It depends on the slide and the context.

Good luck
