Affirmative verbs in Portuguese

Affirmative verbs in Portuguese. Eles estão se divertindo na RioLIVE!? Estão!

What’s up, guys!
All good??

Well, in our Video Dica today, we are  going to talk about affirmative verbs in Portuguese. It’s a very simple and easy thing! Check this out! The correct form to answer a question is always with Sim (yes), when the answer is affirmative, but Brazilians are used to answer with verbs instead of Sim. So, what do I want to say with this?

Let’s see some examples using some affirmative verbs instead of Sim.

Examples of affirmative verbs in Portuguese

Você é carioca? Sou.
Are you carioca? I am.

Ele é Americano? Sim, ele é.
Is he American? Yes, he is.

A Rio & Learn é próxima à praia? Sim, é.
Is Rio & Learn close to the beach? Yes, it is.

Você gosta do Rio de Janeiro? Sim, gosto.
Do you like Rio de Janeiro? Yes, I like it.

Você acha que está quente? Sim, acho.
Do you think it is hot? Yes, I think so.

Você vai casar com ele (ela)? Sim, vou.
Will you marry him (her)? Yes, I will.

So, in all these cases the most correct form to answer would be with a simple yes instead of using another verb. Us Brazilians don’t usually do that, we always answer using a verb.

So, that’s it guys!
This is a very simple yet important Video Dica! Now you have a better understaning on how Brazilians speak on a day-to-day basis. Doesn’t that make Portuguese a bit easier to learn? =)
