List of Portuguese Adverbs of Time
When we are talking, sometimes we have to locate ourselves in space and time, right? In order to do so, we must know the Portuguese adverbs of time. So to begin with, here’s a list of them:
|Day before yesterday
|Ontem à noite
|The week before last week
|The month before last month
|The year before last year
|Hoje à noite
|Depois de amanhã
|Day after tomorrow
|Semana que vem
|Mês que vem
|Ano que vem
Today, yesterday and tomorrow
Furthermore, can you locate yourself and talk about things that have happened or will happen during the week? What you did yesterday and what are you planning to do the day after tomorrow? Now that you are familiar with the words, let’s read a text with the Portuguese adverbs of time.
Text with Portuguese Adverbs of Time
Olá, meu nome é Mary e sou dos Estados Unidos. Cheguei no Rio de Janeiro anteontem, às 2:00 da tarde. Quando cheguei, peguei um táxi e fui para o apartamento do meu amigo, Roberto. Ontem, fomos à escola de Português Rio & Learn porque eu queria aprender português em 30 dias. Hoje é minha primeira aula e estou muito animada para aprender coisas novas. A escola oferece as Atividades RioLIVE!, que parecem ser muito interessantes para praticar Português fora da escola com os outros estudantes e também com algumas pessoas na rua. Amanhã, vamos fazer uma atividade muito legal: vamos conhecer o centro da cidade e, depois de amanhã, vamos praticar alguns vocabulários na praia e beber Caipirinha. Mês que vem eu vou voltar para os Estados Unidos e tenho certeza que vou sentir falta do Rio.
Translation of the text: Portuguese adverbs of time
Hi, my name is Mary and I am from the United States. I arrived in Rio de Janeiro the day before yesterday, at 2:00 in the afternoon. When I arrived, I took a taxi and went to my friend Roberto’s apartment. Yesterday, we went to the Portuguese language school Rio & Learn because I wanted to learn Portuguese in 30 days. Today is my first class and I’m very excited to learn new things. The school offers the RioLIVE! Activities, that seem to be very interesting for practicing Portuguese out of the school while with the other students, as well as different people on the street. Tomorrow, we will do a very cool activity: we will visit the city center and the day after tomorrow, we will practice some vocabulary at the beach and drink a caipirinha. Next month i’ll be going back to the United States and I’m sure I’ll miss Rio.
Notice that we conjugate the verbs in Portuguese according to the Portuguese adverbs of time! They mark the time of the sentences, hence the conjugation of the verbs.
