Nós is we

Vós is you when used on plural.

But we, Brazilians, almost never use vós, we use vocês instead.

"Vós" is also sigular (more often btw) and it's used in everyday life only in the north of Portugal (But I don't know about the other lusophone countries like the african ones).

We just use "vós" in church stuff, in other words, in old texts. ^^

Haha. No worries

That's why we (almost) never use it.
