To be comfortable using Portuguese verbs, language learners need to master verb conjugation. In Portuguese, similar to other Romance languages, verbs tend to have a number of grammar forms. They depend on the conjugation of each verb.
Regular verbs belong to one of three conjugation classes, distinguished by the ending of their infinitives:
- - Portuguese verbs the infinitive of which ends in -ar belong to the First Conjugation (e.g. lavar, matar, ladrar);
- - Portuguese verbs the infinitive of which ends in -er belong to the Second Conjugation (e.g. correr, comer, colher);
- - Portuguese verbs the infinitive of which ends in -ir belong to the Third Conjugation (e.g. partir, destruir, urdir).
