Portuguese Conjunctions

Conjunciones del Portugués. Eu amo esta cidade! Por isso sempre volto aqui.

What’s up? In today’s Dica, we are going talk about the use of Portuguese conjunctions and we are going to study all of them.

Most Important Portuguese Conjunctions

Conjunctions are used to connect sentences. They are divided into Coordenativas and Subordinativas. Let’s understand how they work. To begin with, let’s take a look at the most used Portuguese conjunctions, and then we’ll learn all of them separately.

EAnd
MasBut
OuOr
SeIf
Por issoThat’s why
PorémHowever 
PorqueBecause 
LogoTherefore

 

Porque conjunction examples in Portuguese:
Vamos rápido porque o filme já vai começar.
Vamos para a praia porque não está chovendo.
Vou comprar um casaco porque estou com frio.
Hoje eu vou dançar e beber muito porque é a minha última noite no Rio de Janeiro.

To understand more, let’s take a look at some examples:

Hoje vou beber caipirinha e cerveja.
Today I’m drinking caipirinha and beer.

Eu quero ir à praia, mas está chovendo.
I want to go to the beach, but it’s raining.

Você prefere caipirinha ou cerveja?

Se o clima estiver bom amanhã, vamos sair.
If  the weather is nice tomorrow, let’s go out.

Elas querem aprender Português, logo precisam de aulas particulares.

Coordinating conjunctions

Let’s start with the Coordenativas. These are the ones used to connect sentences and have the same nature and structure such as verb tenses. Let’s see which ones they are:

Additive conjunctions

We use conjunções aditivas to add a new idea in the text.

eand

E conjunction examples in Portuguese:

A casa do Albert é moderna e bonita.
A camisa do André é verde e amarela.

Eu e você queremos ir à praia.
You and I want to go to the beach.

Explanation: Here, ‘e’ simply adds two likes together in one statement.

Ele não quer comer nem estudar.
He neither wants to eat nor to study.

Explanation: ‘Nem’ is used to connect two negative preferences, emphasizing the current dislike for both activities.

Explanation: “Mas também” is used to add an idea that might be somewhat unexpected or contrasting to the first part, emphasizing an addition that is equally or more significant.

Ele estudou física, como também matemática.
He studied physics, as well as mathematics.
Explanation: “Como também” serves to add another element, reinforcing the breadth or inclusivity of the statement, similar to “mas também.”

Ela fala inglês, bem como francês e espanhol.
She speaks English, as well as French and Spanish.
Explanation: “Bem como” is used to add closely related items or equivalents, indicating that what follows is of equal importance or relevance.

Adversative conjunctions

We use conjunções adversativas to connect opposite ideas.

entretantohowever
no entantohowever
Mas conjunction examples in Portuguese:

Estamos com sede, mas não vamos beber água.

Explanation: “Mas” is used to introduce a statement that contrasts with something that has been previously mentioned.

I wanted to go to the beach, however, the weather turned bad.
Explanation: “Porém” is used to introduce a contradiction or limitation to the preceding statement.

Pablo estudou muito, todavia não passou no teste.
Pablo studied a lot, yet he didn’t pass the exam.
Explanation: “Todavia” is used similarly to “porém,” indicating a contrast or unexpected outcome.

É um trabalho difícil, contudo gratificante.
It’s a difficult job, nevertheless, it’s rewarding.
“Contudo” implies a continuation despite adversity or contrast, often introducing a redeeming factor.

Ela disse que viria, entretanto não apareceu.
She said she would come, however, she didn’t show up.
“Entretanto” is used to present an outcome or fact that contradicts the previous expectation or statement.

Planejamos tudo cuidadosamente, no entanto, algo deu errado.
We planned everything carefully, however, something went wrong.
Explanation: “No entanto” serves a similar purpose as “entretanto,” marking a contradiction or unforeseen result.

Alternative conjunctions

Alternative conjunctions or conjunções alternativas in Portuguese, are used to express choices or alternative scenarios between two or more possibilities. They’re essential in showing options or equivalent conditions in a sentence.

ouor
ou…oueither…or
quer…quereither…or
ora…orasometimes…sometimes
já…jásometimes…sometimes
seja…sejabe…be

Você prefere café ou chá?
Do you prefer coffee or tea?
Explanation: “Ou” is used to offer a choice between two alternatives.

Ou vamos à praia ou vamos ao Cristo Redentor.
Either we go to the beach or to Cristo Redentor.
Explanation: “Ou…ou” emphasizes the necessity of choosing between two mutually exclusive options.

Quer chova quer faça sol, sairemos.
Whether it rains or it’s sunny, we will go out.
Explanation: “Quer…quer” is offering a choice between two scenarios, often used more formally.

Ora estuda ora brinca.
He sometimes studies, sometimes plays.
Explanation: “Ora…ora” is used to describe alternating actions or states, often showing regular variation between them.

quer ir ao cinema, quer ficar em casa.
Now he wants to go to the movies, now he wants to stay home.
Explanation: “Já…já” also indicates alternation, similar to “ora…ora,” but it can imply more spontaneity or sudden changes in preference.

Você precisa tomar o remédio seja bom, seja ruim.
You need to take the medicine be it good, be it bad.
Explanation: “Seja…seja” is used to indicate that the statement applies to all given scenarios, often used in more formal or poetic contexts.

These conjunctions are very useful in everyday language as well as in literary and formal writing to provide clarity about choices or variability in conditions or actions.

Explanatory conjunctions

We use these conjunctions to explain something. Conjunções explicativas are used to explain or justify something mentioned in the first clause of a sentence. They are very important for clarifying reasons or causes.

quethat / as
porquebecause
porquantosince
poisbecause

Faça silêncio, que a criança está dormindo.
Be quiet, as the child is sleeping.
Explanation: In this context, “que” is used to provide a reason or explanation directly related to the request or statement made.

Eu quero ir à praia porque está calor.
I want to go to the beach because it’s very hot today.
Explanation: “Porque” is a straightforward way to explain the cause or reason for an action or a situation. Learn about the different porqués in Portuguese.

Devemos ser cuidadosos, porquanto a estrada é perigosa.
We should be careful since the road is dangerous.
Explanation: “Porquanto” is a more formal or less common way to express a reason, similar to “porque.”

Ela não foi à festa pois precisava dormir.
She didn’t go to the party because she needed to sleep.
Explanation: “Pois” is used after the effect to explain the cause. It’s typically used when the reason comes after the assertion or fact, often preceded by a comma in writing.

These conjunctions are vital in Portuguese for constructing sentences where clarification or justification of circumstances or actions is required.

Conclusive conjunctions

Conjunções conclusivas, or conclusive conjunctions, are used to introduce a conclusion or result derived from the information presented earlier in the sentence or discourse. They are key in indicating logical outcomes or deductions.

logotherefore
portantoso / therefore
por issothat’s why
assimso / thus
por conseguintethen, consequently, therefore
Por isso conjunction examples in Portuguese:
João come muito, por isso está engordando.
Jogamos futebol por muito tempo, por isso estamos cansados.
Estudamos muito, por isso estamos animados com o português.

Maria se casou no fim de semana. Logo, estava muito feliz.
Maria got married on the weekend. Therefore, she was really happy.
Explanation: “Logo” is used to derive a logical conclusion based on the preceding information.

Ele não estudou, portanto foi mal na prova.
He didn’t study, so he did poorly on the test.
Explanation: “Portanto” is used to introduce a consequence or outcome that logically follows from the earlier statement.

Está calor demais hoje. Por isso, vou à praia.
It’s too hot today. That’s why I’m going to the beach.

Explanation: “Por isso” is used to explain the reason behind a consequence or action directly linked to a previous fact.

Todos concordaram, assim a decisão foi unânime.
Everyone agreed, thus the decision was unanimous.
Explanation: “Assim” indicates that what follows is a direct result or effect of the preceding clause.

A empresa teve lucros recordes, por conseguinte, os empregados receberam um bônus.
The company had record profits, consequently, the employees received a bonus.
Explanation: “Por conseguinte” is used to present a result that logically follows from the circumstances or facts previously mentioned.

These conjunctions are crucial in constructing coherent and logically connected statements, particularly useful in formal writing and arguments. They help in demonstrating the flow of reasoning from premise to conclusion, enhancing the clarity and persuasiveness of the text.

Subordinating conjunctions

Now let’s talk about the Subordinativas. When we use these conjunctions we’ll see that one sentence depends on the other. Let’s see which ones they are:

Causal Conjunctions

Causal conjunctions in Portuguese are used to indicate the cause or reason for an action or situation described in the main clause. They are essential for expressing why something happens or why a particular state exists.

uma vez quesince / given that
visto quesince / seeing that
já quesince / as
comoas / since

Não podemos sair, uma vez que está chovendo.
We can’t go out, since it’s raining.
Explanation: “Uma vez que” introduces a justification or a cause that explains the main action.

Faremos a reunião online, visto que alguns membros estão viajando.
We’ll have the meeting online since some members are traveling.
Explanation: “Visto que” is used to introduce a cause that is apparent or visible, often used in more formal contexts.

Já que está chovendo, o que acha de ficarmos em casa?
As it’s raining, how about we stay home?
Explanation: “Já que” is commonly used in both spoken and written Portuguese to indicate a reason, often implying that the action follows naturally from the circumstance described.

Como você se comportou, vai ganhar um presentinho.
As you behaved well, you will get a little gift.
Explanation: “Como” in this context is used to state a cause or reason, often at the beginning of a sentence, and is more formal than “já que.”

These conjunctions are very helpful for constructing sentences that clearly explain the reasons or causes behind actions or decisions. They enrich the sentence structure by providing depth and rationale to the discourse.

Consecutive conjunctions

Conjunções consecutivas are used to express the consequence or result of the situation described in the main clause. These conjunctions effectively show the effect or outcome of an action or state.

tal queso that
tanto queso much that
de tal maneira quein such a way that
de modo queso that
de forma quein a way that
sem quewithout

Ele falou tão alto tal que todos na sala o ouviram.
He spoke so loudly that everyone in the room heard him.
Explanation: “Tal que” is used to describe an outcome so significant that it results in the consequence mentioned.

Nós dançamos tanto que mal podemos andar hoje.
We danced so much that we can barely walk today.
Explanation: “Tanto que” emphasizes the extent or degree of the action that led to the consequence.

Ele organizou os documentos de tal maneira que qualquer pessoa poderia entendê-los.
He organized the documents in such a way that anyone could understand them.
Explanation: This phrase highlights the method or style of the action which results in a particular outcome.

Ajuste o microfone de modo que todos possam ouvir.
Adjust the microphone so that everyone can hear.
Explanation: “De modo que” is often used to indicate the intention behind an action leading to a specific result.

Ele explicou de forma que todos compreendessem.
He explained in a way that everyone understood.
Explanation: Similar to “de modo que,” it describes how an action should be performed to achieve a desired outcome.

Não compre o vestido sem que eu veja antes.
Don’t buy the dress without showing it to me.
Explanation: “Sem que” is a bit different from the others as it typically requires the subjunctive mode and is used to describe a situation occurring without the awareness or occurrence of another.

These conjunctions are vital for expressing causal relationships where the focus is on the impact or result of preceding actions or conditions.

Comparative conjunctions

We use these conjunctions to make comparisons in Portuguese. Conjunções comparativas are used to establish a comparison between two elements, highlighting similarities or differences in characteristics, quantities, or actions.

comolike
tal qualjust like
assim comoas / just as / as well as
mais quemore than
menos queless than
tanto quantoas much as

Ela canta como um pássaro.
She sings like a bird.
Explanation: As a comparative conjunction in Portuguese, “como” is used to compare the manner or way in which something is done, implying similarity.

Você fala tal qual seu pai. Meu Deus!
You speak just like your father. My God!
Explanation: “Tal qual” emphasizes a direct and complete similarity between two entities.

Assim como seu irmão, ela é muito estudiosa.
Just like her brother, she is very studious.
Explanation: “Assim como” is used to draw a parallel or equivalency between two subjects or actions.

Ele trabalha mais que todos nós juntos.
He works more than all of us combined.
Explanation: “Mais que” is used to compare quantities or degrees, indicating superiority.

Ela estudou menos que o necessário para a prova.
She studied less than what was needed for the test.
Explanation: “Menos que” compares quantities or degrees, indicating inferiority.

Diogo come tanto quanto Carlos.
Diogo eats as much as Carlos.
Explanation: “Tanto quanto” is used to denote equality in quantity, degree, or manner between two elements.

These comparative conjunctions are very useful for crafting nuanced statements that require the articulation of similarities or differences, and they are frequently used both in casual conversation and formal writing.

Conjunctions of conformity

These conjunctions, also known as conjunções conformativas or conjunções de conformidade, are used to express agreement or accordance with a reference or a standard. They often introduce a clause that specifies the way something is done in alignment with a rule, example, or someone’s words.

conformeas
segundoaccording to
consoanteaccording to / in accordance with
de acordo comaccording to

Ele anota tudo conforme lhe falam.
He writes everything down as they tell him.
Explanation: “Conforme” is used to state that something happens in accordance with or as stated by some guidelines or rules.

Segundo Paulo Coelho, não devemos ter medo de buscar nossos sonhos.
According to Paulo Coelho, we must not be afraid of pursuing our dreams.
Explanation: “Segundo” is typically used to cite someone’s words or written sources as the basis for the information provided.

A política de devoluções será alterada consoante as novas regulamentações.
The return policy will be changed in accordance with the new regulations.
Explanation: “Consoante” is similar to “conforme” and is often used in more formal contexts to denote compliance with standards or rules.

De acordo com os especialistas, a economia irá melhorar.
According to the experts, the economy will improve.
Explanation: “De acordo com” is one of the most common phrases used to express agreement or consistency with what has been stated by an authoritative or reliable source.

In Portuguese, conjunctions of conformity help in aligning statements with existing rules, norms, or authoritative statements and are crucial for formal and academic writing, where precision and alignment with existing knowledge or rules are necessary.

Concessive conjunctions

They indicate an action opposite to the main idea, but that can’t be stopped. Conjunções concessivas are used to introduce a clause that presents a contrast or exception to the main statement. These conjunctions help in expressing ideas that are surprising or unexpected in relation to the main clause.

emborathough / although
mesmo queeven though
por mais queHowever much / no matter how / Although
ainda queeven if


Embora
esteja cansado, ele vai estudar até tarde.
Though he is tired, he is going to study until late.
Explanation: “Embora” introduces a statement that contrasts with the main clause but does not prevent the action from happening.

Irei ao parque, mesmo que chova.
I will go to the park, even though it might rain.
Explanation: “Mesmo que” is used to emphasize a strong contrast, indicating that the action will happen despite the contrary condition mentioned.

Por mais que o ame, ela decidiu terminar com seu namorado.
However much she loves him, she decided to break up with her boyfriend.
Explanation: “Por mais que” is used to express an extreme degree of effort or condition, yet highlighting that it doesn’t change the outcome.

Ainda que me ofereçam muito dinheiro, não vou vender minha casa.
Even if they offer me a lot of money, I won’t sell my house.
Explanation: “Ainda que” sets up a hypothetical scenario, showing that the action or decision remains unchanged regardless of the conditions.

Concessive conjunctions in Portuguese are pivotal in crafting nuanced and complex sentences that reflect contrast or opposition while still leading to an established conclusion. They are particularly useful in argumentative texts, literary writing, and formal speeches where acknowledging and countering contrasting points is necessary.

Conjunctions of Condition

Conditional conjunctions are used to introduce a condition that must be met for the main clause of the sentence to occur. These conjunctions set up hypothetical or potential situations, often discussing possibilities or requirements.

seif
casoin case
contanto queas long as
a menos queunless
salvo seunless

Se tivermos tempo, vamos visitar o Rio de Janeiro.
If we have time, we’ll visit Rio de Janeiro.
Explanation: “Se” is the most common conditional conjunction, used to introduce a condition that affects the outcome of the main clause.

Traga um guarda-chuva, caso chova.
Bring an umbrella, in case it rains.
Explanation: “Caso” is often used similarly to “se,” but can sometimes imply a precaution or a preventive measure.

Você pode usar o carro, contanto que o traga de volta até às 22h
You can use the car, as long as you bring it back by 10 PM.
Explanation: “Contanto que” sets a condition that specifies a requirement to be met for the permission or situation in the main clause to hold.

João será demitido, a menos que pare de faltar o trabalho.
João will be fired unless he stops taking days off work.
Explanation: “A menos que” introduces a condition that is an exception to what is stated in the main clause.

A reunião será amanhã, salvo se o chefe decidir cancelar.
The meeting is tomorrow unless the boss decides to cancel.
Explanation: “Salvo se” is another way to express a conditional that is an exception, similar to “a menos que.”

Conditional conjunctions are crucial for expressing dependencies between events or conditions in both spoken and written Portuguese. They add depth and complexity to sentences by specifying conditions that affect outcomes or actions.

Conjunctions of Proportion

We use these conjunctions to talk about actions that happen at the same time. Essentially, they show how one action or condition varies in relation to another, emphasizing simultaneous changes or dependencies.

à medida queas
à proporção queto the extent that
quanto maisthe more
quanto menosthe less
enquantowhile

À medida que o dia avançava, ficava mais frio.
As the day went on, it got colder.
Explanation: “À medida que” is used to express a gradual change in one situation in direct correlation to the change in another.

À proporção que aumentava a demanda, subiam os preços.
To the extent that demand increased, prices went up.
Explanation: “À proporção que” emphasizes that the changes in one aspect are directly proportional to changes in another.

Quanto mais você falar Português, mais rápido vai aprender.
The more you speak Portuguese, the faster you will learn.
Explanation: “Quanto mais” is used in a comparative sense, showing how an increase in one action results in an increase in another.

Quanto menos se fala portugués, menos se aprende.
The less you speak Portuguese, the fewer you learn.
Explanation: “Quanto menos” functions like “quanto mais” but with decreases. It shows how a decrease in one action results in a decrease in another.

Ela estuda e trabalha enquanto ele dorme e joga video games.
She studies and works while he sleeps and plays video games.
Explanation: “Enquanto” indicates that two actions are occurring simultaneously, though not necessarily in a proportional sense like the others.

Conjunctions of proportion are very useful for expressing complex relationships where actions or conditions are interdependent, especially in more analytical or descriptive contexts. They help clarify the dynamics between different factors or behaviors

Final conjunctions

Final conjunctions, or purpose conjunctions, are used in Portuguese to express the intention or purpose behind an action. They introduce subordinate clauses that explain why the action in the main clause is being undertaken.

a fim de quein order to / so that
para queso that


A fim de que
pudesse viajar, ele guardava muito dinheiro.
In order to travel, he saved a lot of money.
Explanation: “A fim de que” is used to explicitly state the purpose or intended result of the action mentioned in the main clause. It usually necessitates the use of the subjunctive mode in the subordinate clause.

Fechamos as janelas para que não entrasse frio.
We closed the windows so that the cold wouldn’t come in.
Explanation: “Para que” is similar to “a fim de que” and is used to indicate the purpose or goal. It also typically triggers the use of the subjunctive mode to express the intention behind actions.

These conjunctions are essential for constructing sentences where the purpose of an action needs to be clearly articulated, particularly in formal writing or when providing instructions or reasons. They help in connecting the action to its intended outcome, thereby clarifying the motive behind the action.

Conjunctions of Time

Conjunções temporais (temporal conjunctions) are used in Portuguese to indicate the timing of an event in relation to another event. They help specify when actions happen, linking events in time, which is crucial for expressing sequences, conditions, or stipulations related to time.

quandowhen
sempre quewhenever
toda vez queevery time
logo queonce
depois queafter
antes quebefore
até queuntil

Eu estava em casa quando ele chegou.
I was at home when he arrived.
Explanation: “Quando” is used to link two events that occur simultaneously or one immediately after the other.

Sempre que chove, o trânsito fica horrível.
Whenever it rains, the traffic gets horrible.
Explanation: “Sempre que” indicates a repeated action or condition that occurs every time a certain situation happens.

Toda vez que eu entro no banho o telefone toca.
Every time I get in the shower, the phone rings.
Explanation: Similar to “sempre que,” “toda vez que” is used to denote recurrence or regularity.

Logo que soube da notícia, ele ligou.
As soon as he heard the news, he called.
Explanation: “Logo que” is used to express immediacy in the sequence of events.

Depois que você sair, feche a porta.
After you leave, close the door.
Explanation: “Depois que” is used to place one event in time after another.

É melhor sairmos antes que ela chegue.
We better go out before she arrives.
Explanation: “Antes que” often requires the use of the subjunctive mode and is used to indicate that one action should occur before another.

Espere aqui até que eu volte.
Wait here until I come back.
Explanation: “Até que” sets a temporal boundary, indicating that one event will continue until another event interrupts or changes the situation.

Temporal conjunctions are essential for detailing the relationships between different events, particularly in narrative and descriptive contexts. They provide a framework for understanding sequences and timings of actions and conditions in speech and writing.

Text with conjunctions in Portuguese

Now, let’s see a small text in which we use conjunctions in Portuguese:

Olá, meu nome é João e sou carioca. Moro no Rio, a cidade maravilhosa e sou muito feliz por viver aqui. Todos os dias, acordo bem cedo e vou trabalhar. Gosto muito do meu trabalho, sou professor da Rio & Learn, mas não gosto muito do trânsito porque é muito lento aqui na cidade. Todas as pessoas costumam vir de longe e sempre vão para o mesmo lugar. Por isso, o trânsito é sempre muito lento. Mas, isso não é nenhum problema: depois do trabalho, todos os dias, ou vou para a praia de Copacabana para pegar um sol ou tomo uma caipirinha e aproveito a vida na cidade. Gosto muito das coisas belas que temos aqui. Por isso nunca vou me mudar do Rio de Janeiro, minha cidade maravilhosa.

Translation of the text with conjunctions in Portuguese

Hello, my name is João and I am a carioca. I live in Rio, the marvelous city and I am very happy to live here. Every day, I wake up very early and I go to work. I really like my job, I am a teacher at Rio & Learn, but I don’t like the traffic very much because it moves very slowly here in the city. Everybody usually travels from distant neighborhoods all going to the same place. That’s why the traffic is always slow. But, this isn’t a big deal: after work, I either go to Copacabana’s beach to catch some sun or drink a caipirinha and enjoy life in the city. I like the beautiful things we have here. That’s why I will never move from Rio de Janeiro, my marvelous city.

Small classes, diverse accents, and engaging professors make Rio & Learn Online a fantastic choice! I've been thrilled with my experience at Rio & Learn Online so far. The small class sizes (around 1-3 others students) allow for personalized attention and plenty of opportunities to practice speaking. What's more, having different professors throughout the program exposes you to various accents, preparing you for real-world interactions. I opted for the full-time program, which involves 2 hours of daily learning from Monday to Friday. After just over 12 weeks, I can confidently say my Portuguese has improved dramatically. The professors are incredibly engaging and encourage students to utilize real-life examples, solidifying the learning process. While I'm only halfway through the program, I'm confident in recommending Rio & Learn Online to anyone seeking to learn Portuguese in a supportive and effective environment. I've gone from being a complete beginner (only knowing hi and bye) to holding conversations - and I'm excited to see how much further I can progress! I'll be back with another review after completing the program, but for now: Rio & Learn Online - highly recommended!

C'est vraiment fantastique...RioAndLearn. Les cours de portugais...ça vaut vraiment la peine. Les cours ont lieu du lundi au vendredi, (de 9h à 13h) et en après midi, ce sont des activités libres en groupe. (Soccer de plage, volleyball , excursions, visites des lieux touristiques, etc) Vendredi soir, on est allé à Lapa, un quartier nocturne de Rio. C'est quelque chose à voir! Des rues bondées de monde, des orchestres, des discothèques...Allô les décibels! L'apprentissage du portugais se fait en immersion, aussi bien en salle de classe que dans les activités extérieures organisées par Rio&Learn. On est plongé dans la langue portugaise et la culture Brésilienne.... Obligé de parler portugais....🫡 Je le recommande. Pierre Pedro, Montréal, Canada
