Ways to Say Whatever in Portuguese

In Portuguese, we have many ways to express the same feeling that whatever express. Check it out below these expressions:

Dá no mesmoWhatever
Não importaIt doesn’t matter
Não me importaI don’t care
Que seja!Whatever
Tanto fazWhatever
Não estou nem aíI don’t care

Dá no mesmo in Portuguese

We use Dá no mesmo when we have two options that are very similar.

Julian: Qual é o certo, tudo bom ou tudo bem?
Professora: Dá no mesmo.

Julian: What is the correct form, tudo bom or tudo bem?

Não importa in Portuguese

We use Não importa when something doesn’t matter.

Alberto: Você quer ir para o Cristo ou para o Pão de Açúcar?
Cristiano: Não importa, eu gosto dos dois.

Alberto: Do you want to go to Christ or to Sugar Loaf?
Cristiano: It doesn’t matter, I like both of them.

Não me importa in Portuguese

We use Não me importa when something doesn’t matter to you, that is why we use the reflexive pronoun.

José: Você sabia que aquele casal se separou?
Anna: Ah, de verdade? Não me importa.

José: Did you know that couple got divorced?
Anna: To tell you the truth I don’t care.

Que seja in Portuguese

It’s a bit rude to use Que seja, because when we use it we don’t really want to talk about that. It is especially used when you are upset.

Mãe: Você prefere a mochila rosa ou a amarela?
Filha: Que seja! Eu queria uma bolsa igual a da Duda.

Mother: Do you prefer the pink backpack or the yellow one?
Daughter: Whatever! I wanted a purse just like Duda’s. 

Tanto faz in Portuguese

Now you are going to learn the expression Tanto Faz with our friend Moisés. Pay attention to his gestures.

The gesture in the video means whatever in Portuguese just like it doesn’t matter, that’s ok, no problem!

Não estou nem aí in Portuguese

This is another way that can sound rude. It’s mostly used when you don’t care at all for whatever is being said. Pay attention when you decide to use it, ok?

Esther: Você disse que chegaria cedo!
Eric: Não estou nem aí, me atrasei!

Esther: You said you would get here early!
Eric: I don’t care, I got late!

Examples for Whatever in Portuguese

Now that we understood how to use these expressions, let’s dive in deeper into examples:

Ana: Clara, vai chover no fim de semana!
Clara: Ok! Tanto faz! Eu não me importo. Eu não tenho planos para o fim de semana.

Ana: Clara, it’s going to rain on the weekend!
Clara: Ok! It doesn’t matter! I don’t care. I don’t have plans for the weekend.

Carlos: Ai Moisés, desculpe! Quebrei o vaso!
Moisés: Ok, relaxa! Tanto faz! Eu não me importo com esse vaso. Ele não é importante para mim!

Carlos: Oh Moisés, I’m sorry! I broke your vase!
Moisés: Ok, relax! That’s fine! I don’t care about this vase. It’s not important to me! 

Marjorie: Você vai à próxima RioLIVE! que vai acontecer na Lapa?
Lucas: Tanto faz onde vai ser! Eu adoro todos as atividades da Rio & Learn.

Marjorie: Will you come to the next RioLIVE! that is going to happen in Lapa?

I’ve just started online classes with Prof. Ana Carolina & she is the absolute best! It’s my first time learning Portuguese and I was speaking full sentences in the first class. Obrigada!

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!

Rio & Learn e um novo jeito de ensinar a lingua portuguesa. Puro prazer e muito eficiente. Quanto mais alunos na aula mais vida. Eu aconselho voces escolher as aulas grupais por porque sao interativas: rir, falar, argumentar, compartir uma lingua!

Après 3 semaines que je suis dans cette école et je peux déjà parler portugais. Certe avec des erreurs mais j'ai fait des progrès fulgurant. En plus, du Lundi au Vendredi l'ecole propose des activitées qu'il appelle "Rio Live" ce qui permet de visiter en même temps Rio tout en parlant Portugais et de rencontrer des gens😃 Toute l'équipe est genial et est prêts à aider si besoin 😁
I've been taking the group online courses with Rio&Learn for 2 months. They offer a fantastic way to learn Portuguese and get speaking practice if you don't live in Brazil. The teachers are engaging and are able to adjust their level of Portuguese to whatever level you are at. Obrigado!

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
