You’ll see that they (the irregular verbs) follow the same logical thought we did with the regular verbs by adding the same terminations in the future, but their roots will change a little.

For example, the first conjugation of the regular verb “vender” (to sell) becomes “venderei” (I will sell) in the future tense.

Now, speaking on the irregular verb “fazer” (to make), its first conjugation becomes “farei” (I will make). We don’t normally say “eu fazerei”, so that, we really need to memorize irregular verbs conjugations.

On today’s podcast, we are going to learn three of them. They are really important verbs we use all the time. Let’s start conjugating “fazer” verb (to make) in “futuro do presente in Portuguese.
