A rotina de Beatriz – beginner Brazilian Portuguese text – A1

If you are in the beginning of your Portuguese language study and you are not familiar with verb conjugation from other romance languages (e.g. Italian, or Spanish) you may have learned that you need to conjugate verbs, it means to change according to the number of people or tense (presente, past and future).

For example, I say acordo (from acordar – to wake up) and it’s showing 2 things:

  1. Person: eu (singular)
  2. Tense: simple present (Presente Simples do Indicativo)

If I change it to acordaram, I’m showing:

  1. Person: vocês, eles or elas (plural)
  2. Tense: simple past (Pretérito Perfeito do Indicativo)

And we do it just by changing the endings of the verbs! What’s the best way to remember all this? PRACTICING! Listening, repeating, reading, writing, speaking, checking online… Here you have an activity to practice it!
