Conditional in Portuguese

In Portuguese, we use the Conditional tense to express desire, talk about unreal scenarios, or convey politeness. As you’ll soon see, however, the Imperfect tense (Pretérito Imperfeito) serves the same purpose and is more common in spoken language.

In the first half of this post, we’ll look into the Portuguese Conditional tense – conjugation and usage. In the second half, we’ll find out what the Portuguese equivalents of English Conditionals look like.

Let’s dive in.

Portuguese Conditional tense

Conjugation

It is relatively easy to conjugate verbs in the conditional tense. We go from the Infinitive form (our stem) and add the following endings: -ia, -ias, -ia, -íamos, -iam

Take the verb gostar as an example: 

Gostar | Conditional
Condicional
Eugostaria
Tugostarias
Ele, elagostaria
Nósgostaríamos
Vocês
Eles, elas
gostariam

The following verbs are exceptions to the above (the endings are the same but the stem won’t match the infinitive form):

Fazer DizerTrazer
Eufariadiriatraria
Tufariasdiriastrarias
Ele, elafariadiriatraria
Nósfaríamosdiríamostraríamos
Vocês
Eles, elas
fariamdiriamtrariam

Usage

We can use the Conditional tense in several situations as shown below. In spoken language, however, the Imperfect* tense is more common.

Having said that, let’s look at the different contexts where we can use the conditional tense.

Desire

We use the conditional tense to express desire or wish for something:

Gostaria de ir ao cinema.
I’d like to go to the cinema.

Adoraria comer um gelado agora.
I’d love to eat ice cream now. 

Here are more common versions of the above using the Imperfect tense instead of the Conditional:

Gostava de ir ao cinema.
Adorava comer um gelado agora.
