I understand that some verbs need to be followed by prepositions and that precisar is followed by ‘de’, as in: eu preciso de trabalhar.
My review sentences currently have some examples without the ‘de’. For example: O que preciso fazer? and Estou a aprender a língua e preciso praticar.
I can’t see anything to distinguish the sentences without the ‘de’ from the many more examples with it. Any guidance much appreciated.
I feel that this is a topic that might have been addressed before, but I couldn’t find anything. Apologies if I’ve missed something.
