Saying “Thank you” in Portuguese

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!😉

Eg:

— Obrigada por me ajudar. (Thank you for help me.)

— De nada!

That’s it!😉
