Unlike English, most Portuguese words have a gender. Sometimes you will notice patterns like the -o in many masculine words and the -a finite in many feminine words. However, there are many, many exceptions, so you can`t always rely on this rule. Also, some words take different forms for each gender and others have only one form. It is important to use the templates as a guide and note exceptions over time when listening to them in context. We can divide Portuguese words into at least four groups when it comes to sex.. . .
