Portuguese future subjunctive tense – Portuguese verb conjugation

Hello and welcome to our Portuguese Basic Tips called Portuguese future subjunctive tense

Well, on today’s episode, we’ll speak about Portuguese future subjunctive tense in our series about this topic.

If you haven’t listened to the first two episodes yet, I suggest you search for their links on this episode’s page.

As you already know, we use subjunctive tense in Portuguese to express “possibility”, to express “an assumption idea”. Something that you’re not convinced that will really happen.

On this basis, we can say that we use Portuguese future subjunctive tense to indicate a hypothetical situation that will take place in the future.

For instance:

– Quando eu falar, você irá entender (When I speak, you will understand it).

– Se eu disser, você não terá dúvidas (If I say so, you will have no doubts.)

That’s not a rule, but it’s pretty common to us using the words “quando” (when) and “se” (if) accompanied by the verb in the future subjunctive form.

So, let’s practice a little bit, combining a few Portuguese verbs in the future subjunctive tense.

During this exercise I’ll give you some additional explanations about it.

Cantar Verb – Portuguese future subjunctive tense

 Cantar Portuguese future subjunctive tense
(Quando) eu Cantar
(Quando) tu Cantares
(Quando) ele Cantar
(Quando) nós Cantarmos
(Quando) vós Cantardes
(Quando) eles Cantarem

Now, repeat with me the verb “vender”, ending with “er”.

Vender Verb  (To sell) – Portuguese verb conjugation

Vender (To sell) Portuguese future subjunctive tense
(Quando) eu Vender
(Quando) tu Venderes
(Quando) ele Vender
(Quando) nós Vendermos
(Quando) vós Venderdes
(Quando) eles Venderem

 

At this time of this podcast, you may think that you can combine all verbs ending with “er” as we did before in “vender verb”. But let’s remember that in Portuguese we have some irregular verbs. So, you’ll often see people – even Brazilian people – using the verb “ver” (to see) like that “quando eu ver, te aviso” (When I see it, I’ll let you know). That’s not correct!

In order to avoid this kind of conjugation, let’s practice the right way of doing so with the irregular verb “ver” in the future tense.

Ver Verb  (To see) – Portuguese future subjunctive tense
Ver (To see) Portuguese future subjunctive tense
(Quando) eu Vir
(Quando) tu Vires
(Quando) ele Vir
(Quando) nós Virmos
(Quando) vós Virdes
(Quando) eles Virem

 

And to finish this, let’s try the verb “partir”, ending with “ir”. It’s pretty much the same as we did with the irregular verb “ver”.

Repeat with me:

Partir verb (To leave) – Portuguese future subjunctive tense

Partir (to leave) Portuguese future subjunctive tense
(Se) eu Partir
(Se) tu Partires
(Se) ele Partir
(Se) nós Partirmos
(Se) vós Partirdes
(Se) eles Partirem
