Portuguese grammar. Why learn it?
Learning the Portuguese grammar can seem like the hardest and most boring task when you start learning the language. Most Portuguese teachers would start by teaching you the grammar rules. That’s probably why you hated doing Portuguese grammar exercises in school. We don’t blame you. We feel the same way.
Though it’s not the first thing you have to learn, knowing the Portuguese grammar has its importance and sooner or later you will have to deal with it. The secret is taking courses designed to teach you grammar without the need to study endless rules. How? By absorbing the basic Portuguese grammar rules while listening to natives having real conversations. That’s how kids learn. At the age of 5, kids are already fluent in their native language. How can this be? They don’t even know what a verb is at that age. It’s because they hear their parents speaking. That’s the best approach for you as well. That’s exactly how we, at Mondly, approach learning the Portuguese grammar and millions of people worldwide appreciate our innovative app. By listening to natives, you will know advanced Portuguese grammar rules to use in real life conversations even if you never studied the rules themselves.

Did you know?
Portuguese people are extremely friendly, but don’t take this for granted. If you know someone well from Portugal or Brazil, you can use “tu” when talking to them. But, if you’re talking with someone you just met, it’s respectful to use the formal “você” to address them. In case you are addressing a group of strangers, you can use the plural “vocês”. To be even more polite, you can address a women with “senhora” meaning “Madam” or “senhorita” meaning “Miss”. For men you’ve just met you can use the word “senhor”, the equivalent of “Mister” in English.
As for grammar rules, Portuguese is similar to English when it comes to the word order. You start with the subject, then add the verb and end with the object. A simple example is “O gato comeu o rato” which translates to “The cat ate the mouse”.
