    Native speakers drop 'r' when speaking infinitive forms.

    We write: Você precisa comer mais para não adoecer! but you may hear as: Você precisa come mais pra não adoece!

    Ser and Estar can be very tricky in talking. Have you faced that?

    Writing: Eu estou cansado de esperar uma resposta. Não sou do tipo que espera.
    Speaking: Eu to cansado de espera uma resposta. Não so do tipo que espera.

    Estou -> reduces to 'to'
    Sou -> reduces to 'so'

    I hope it helped!

    'Fugir' = infinitive "to escape"
    'Fugi' is in the past "eu fugi" means "I escaped"
