Conjugate verbs in the Present – PART 1

Hey Brazilianers! Tudo bem?

The Portuguese language has certain conjugations to be followed when the subject is a verb!

So today we will show you how to conjugate verbs in Brazilian Portuguese.

Unlike Portuguese spoken in Portugal, here in Brazil we use the following people more widely:

EU

VOCÊ

ELE / ELA 

A GENTE

NÓS

VOCÊS

ELES / ELAS

There are also the TU and VÓS people and their respective combinations, but as their use is restricted to specific regions our focus here will be what we use most, ok?

Let us, then, the conjugations: We will take as an example the verb AMAR.

Note that this verb ends with -AR, so we will use this conjugation pattern:

AMAR

EU AMO

VOCÊ AMA

ELE / ELA 

A GENTE AMA   

NÓS AMAMOS

VOCÊS AMAM

ELES / ELAS AMAM   

Important: note that VOCÊ and VOCÊS use the 3rd person singular and plural conjugation, respectively.

Notice that we take the verb AMAR and remove the ending -AR.

Then we add the respective terminations, according to the people:

eu – AM(o)

você – AM(a)

ele / ela – AM(a)

a gente – AM(a)

nós – AM(amos)

vocês – AM(am)

eles / elas – AM(am)

This pattern will apply to all regular verbs that end in -AR.

Oi, I’m Dani, Brazilian Portuguese teacher and I believe that learning Portuguese goes far beyond grammatical structures. In addition, learning a language gives us a new way of being and seeing the world. I help people who want to know Brazil to speak Portuguese so that they feel more secure, confident and prepared to live unique experiences traveling, living or working in the country.
