Making sentences with 10 Portugues verbs to describe my habitual actions.

<em>Present continuous:</em>

ESTAR  + Verbo Gerúndio

Estar is conjugated for different subjects. You can know the conjugations of “Estar” on the column Presente in this website. <a href="http://www.conjuga-me.net/verbo-estar">http://www.conjuga-me.net/verbo-estar</a>;. To know the Gerúndio of a verb, we should know the infinitive verb, then take out the letter “R” at the end of the word. After that, we add “-NDO”. Here are 10 infinitive verbs I have made flashcards with on this website. <a href="http://quizlet.com/11514692/10-verbs-flash-cards/">http://quizlet.com/11514692/10-verbs-flash-cards/</a>; We can memorize them at first then making sentences with them or you can memorize and make sentences with them at the same time. It’s up to you. ;)
