In Portugal it's generally used "tu".
In Brazil it is very common to use "você'', but there are few regions that use "tu".

 

 

 Aqui na minha família e no meu Estado usamos o pronome tu (Ex.: tu queres? tu gostas?), mas há pessoas de outras regiões que usam o pronome você. (Você sabe? você conhece o Brasil?).

Here in Brazil is much more common to use: " você ". " Tu" is used only in some regions. If you come to  Brazil or talk with brazilian people,I advise you to use você.

Thank you all. I got it. I've just started to learn Portugese.  

 

 @Sul: You're welcome. Bem-vinda! Muitos de nós aqui, inclusive eu, podemos lhe ajudar a aprender o idioma português.

Wow I didn't know that in some regions of Brazil you use "Tu" I tought it was only"você". Because in Spanish "você" it's "Tu". Looking forward to learn more portugues you guys, this was a really good information.
