Irregular Verbs

Of course, like most languages, Spanish has its fair share of irregular verbs. These verbs don’t get conjugated according to the usual rules. There are similarities between certain irregular verbs–they break the rules in similar ways. Some only have an irregular yo form and everything else is normal. Others change vowels in their stems (the part of the verb minus the ar/er/ir ending). Others are mavericks, completely unlike any other words. Let’s dig in by starting with some of the most commonly-used ones.

Ser vs Estar: To Be
Ir: To Go
Tener: To Have
Salir: To Leave/Go Out
Conocer vs Saber: To Know
Seguir: To Continue/Follow
Querer: To Want
