REGULAR AND IRREGULAR VERBS

Understanding the distinction between regular and irregular verbs in the Portuguese language is essential. Regular verbs are consistently conjugated in the same manner, employing uniform endings. Consequently, students proficient in conjugating one regular verb inherently possess the ability to conjugate all regular verbs.

REGULAR VERBS IN THE PRESENT TENSE

In the PRESENTE do INDICATIVO there are three types of regular verbs:

VERBS ENDING in -AR. Examples: trabalhar, morar, estudar, comprar.

VERBS ENDING in -ER. Examples: comer, beber.

VERBS ENDING in-IR. Example: partir

IRREGULAR VERBS IN THE PRESENT TENSE

In the Portuguese language, a considerable number of irregular verbs exists in the present tense. Should an A1-level student commit all of them to memory? In our view, the answer is no; students of Portuguese need not attempt to memorize all irregular verbs. However, there are four verbs that every student should familiarize themselves with as soon as possible. These are the verbs SER, ESTAR, TER, and IR. All other irregular verbs should be acquired through exposure to the language. Students should engage in regular communication to facilitate a gradual and natural consolidation of conjugations. Now, let’s delve into the conjugation of these four essential verbs!

The importance of regular verbs and these four irregular verbs is TREMENDOUS in the progression of Portuguese students. From the very first day of class, we SHARE this opinion with our students. We regularly test them to make sure that everyone is comfortable with these conjugations. If you study Portuguese, follow our advice and memorize these conjugations! It is one of the basics of the Portuguese language!

My wife and I took the 3 week A1 Portuguese lessons with Lisbon Language cafe. We loved it! It was important for us to find a small class size so we’d be able to participate and receive frequent feedback. And only 3 weeks later we already find ourselves confident in using the language in public. We plan on signing up for the next A2 course ASAP. Obrigado!

I've been taking classes with Frederico from A1 through B1, and I have learned so much. I really appreciate the conversational style of the class and the emphasis on what's important for day-to-day conversation, and what can be learned over time. I truly enjoy coming to class each week, and highly recommend the Lisbon Language Cafe.

This was an amazing first experience learning Portuguese. I just completed the intensive A1 and loved every minute. Frederico and Sara were both brilliant teachers with a passion for teaching and sharing knowledge of Portuguese language, society and culture. Lisbon Language Cafe deservedly has the best reviews of any Lisbon language school and I highly recommend it to all students.

Great A1 Class in a small group to get started with Portuguese! Both teachers, Sara & Frederico, were lovely - they were always structured & prepared. Not only did they manage to teach us the Portuguese language but also convey Portuguese culture and insights! I can highly recommend joining the Language Cafe :)

Frederico is a great teacher. Great vibes and great class atmosphere. The best thing is he tells you what you need to learn and what you don't need to worry about which is so crucial for A1 & A2. Don't get bogged down with the stuff you don't need to know yet, focus on what matters.
