38. Portuguese Verb To Drink - Beber or Tomar

Beber and tomar are regular verbs, so they should be easy to learn.

beber - to drink tomar - to drink / take
eu bebo nós bebemos eu tomo nós tomamos
tu bebes vós bebeis tu tomas vós tomais
ele/ela/você bebe eles/elas/vocês bebem ele/ela/você toma eles/elas/vocês tomam

When you use beber, it usually refers to alcohol, but there's no problem if you specify the drink after the verb.

Notice that tomar also means to take. You can also say tomar o desjejum - to have breakfast, but never say tomar o almoço or tomar o jantar. For this purpose we have the verbs almoçar - to have lunch and jantar - to have dinner.
