    It has no literal meaning to English since even in Portuguese it comes from the verb: Tomar (to take, to get and a lot of other meanings) first and third-person singular pluperfect indicative of tomar.

    Tomara que você tenha entendido as explicações:
    Hope you have understood the explanations.

    "Tomara" is an interjection to express desire.

    It isn't exactly a verb. It's a word derived from the verb "tomar" (to take) but it isn't used with this meaning.

    I think that the closer English word to "tomara" is "hopefully".
