First episode about Portuguese verbs in the future tense
Second episode about Portuguese verbs in the future tense
If you listened to our previous episodes about verbs in Portuguese, you won’t have much trouble to understand this one here.
Do you remember I said that we also have a way to indicate future tense by using an auxiliary verb in Portuguese? Well, that’s right! Much like the English language, in Portuguese you could use the verb “ir” in the present tense followed by the main verb in the infinitive form.
Last episodes I tried to explain how to indicate future tense in Portuguese. So, for example, if you want to say “I will make it” – I said that you should say in Portuguese “Eu farei isso”, right? But you can simply say “Eu vou fazer isso”.
Plus: I think that using the auxiliary verb “ir” is easier than using the other way, because of the irregular verbs. In this case, we don’t have to modify them, so that all Portuguese verbs will remain unchangeable.
Let’s take the examples we used last episode, with irregular verbs. You’ll see the difference.
Fazer + Ir verb
Trazer + ir verb
Falar + Ir Verb
