Feel Better in Portuguese Posted by Rachel on Apr 5, 2011 in Learning
If you want to tell someone who is sick or injured to feel better, here are a few ways to do so.
This is the simplest way to tell someone to feel better, with just a single word.
Você está bem? – Are you ok?
Não, estou doente. – No, I’m sick.
Melhoras! – Feel better!
2. Melhoras para você
This is a similar way to tell someone get well, but just adding “for you” at the end.
Estou indo. Melhoras para você, querido! I’m leaving. Feel better, my dear!
3. Estimo melhoras
This is a bit of a more formal expression to tell someone to feel better, using the verb estimar. It also works to say Estimo as melhoras.
Ela está no hospital. She’s in the hospital.
Estimo melhoras. I hope she feels better.
4. Fique bem logo
This literally means, get better soon.
Fique bem logo, amiga! Espero te ver em breve. Feel better soon, friend! I hope to see you soon.
5. Recupere-se logo
This is a slightly more formal version of fique bem logo, which literally translates as “recuperate quickly.”
Tive um acidente e quebrei o braço. I had an accident and broke my arm.
Recupere-se logo! Get better soon!
There are even more variations on these phrases to wish someone well. Can you think of any?
