Dividir para Conquistar

Divide (and) Conquer

Ricardo and Ana go to the supermarket together to buy groceries. Will dividing up the tasks make the shopping trip go faster?


  • Bom dia,
    “Eu também vou comprar para mim e se quiseres compro também para ti !”
    Can you please explain why the present tense is used in the second part of that sentence and not the future?

    • Olá, Siovan. We often use the present tense even to refer to the future, as long as it’s clear in context, which it is in this case. Also, note that even though “compro” is in the present tense, “quiseres” is in the future (subjunctive), which makes it extra clear 🙂
