- Você tem = You have (most used)
- O senhor tem = You have (formal, masculine)
- A senhora tem = You have (formal, feminine)
- Ele tem = He has / It has (masculine)
- Ela tem = She has / It has (feminine)
- Nós temos = We have
- A gente tem = We have (informal)
- Vós tendes = You guys have (very formal, rarely used)
- Vocês têm = You guys have
- Eles têm = They have (masculine)
- Elas têm = They have (feminine)
Sometimes there are this kind of delusive sentences pop up for no reason and hard to believe that written by a real person. It is really annoying. Because we try to learn a new language and it is already complicated to us and with this unrealistic examples it makes it more difficult!
There are videos online of cute armadilloes playing with balls. I bet that sentence has been spoken many times in the big wide real world. Also it's good pronunciation practice, if you try saying it as fast as the DL voice, or a little faster, with the correct vowel sounds and accents.
