Use of the "s" in the present of the english sentences

Howdy, everyone !

I have a grammatical doubt that has been a great problem in my life...
I know that we have to use the "s" in the end of the verb that is in the present, directed to he, she or it, in a sentence. But because of the portuguese, a doubt has grown up...

If I use the "if" in the begin of the sentence, I will have to keep the "s" ? A little example in portuguese :

1 - Se ele choraR , minha mãe ficará muito brava. >> If he cries/cry, my mother is gonna be very angry.
2 - Se ele realmente sabE isso, o que vamos fazer ? >> If he really knows it, what we're gonna do ?

The second one I know that the translation is correct because the verb, in portuguese doesn't have a "r" in the end. But in the first one which in portuguese is in the infinitive, I don't know if I have to keep the "s" in english or not.

Can anybody help me ? :idea:

The grammar rules in English are different than in Portuguese.
Normally, when you say any verb with he, she or it it will always have an "s" or "es".
Even if it is in the infinitive form of the verb.
By the way, just a tip, in written English you never write
"gonna", you write "going to" always.
It may appear in song lyrics, but only because they have to
fit the words into the music. It is common in spoken English, but
not in written English.
Thanks, Telma, for the answer... I know the correct form... The problem is that I'm really used to chat the people on skype, paltalk, and on another chatting systems... Using gonna is really common in an informal chat or conversation, you know.

Sometimes , just live everybody, I have to be very careful not to get used to do it in formal writtings as you said, but I don't really think that there is problem doing it here, once I didn't ask the correct use for going to ( I already know) and I'm not in a formal situation...

Anyway, thanks for helping and for trying to correct me in another thing too...

God bless you !
