Oi gente! Tudo bem? 😀
To start this week we brought to you a quick Portuguese tip. 🙂 Do you know how to say “thank you” in Portuguese?
Probably you already heard the word “Obrigado” or maybe “Obrigada”. This is how we say “thank you”, but which is correct? I tell you: BOTH. 😀
If you are a man you must say: OBRIGADO.
If you are a woman: OBRIGADA.
Even some brazilians don’t know that, but “Obrigado/ Obrigada is a reduced form for this sentence: “Eu estou obrigada(o) a lhe retribuir o favor.” (I am obliged to repay you the favor.)
Sometimes you can also listen to people contracting these words saying “brigada” or “brigado”. It more informal.
He are some other variations:
- MUITO OBRIGADA/OBRIGADO
- MUITÍSSIMO OBRIGADA/OBRIGADO
- AGREDECIDO/ AGREDECIDA
If someone thank you something, you reply it just sayind: DE NADA! 😉
— Obrigada por me ajudar. (Thank you for help me.)
— De nada!
That’s it! 😉
