Ir Conjugation

Hello, everyone! Today we’ll study Ir Conjugation! The verb “Ir” (to go) it’s a irregular verb and it’s one of the verbs you need to know from the very first moment you start study Spanish. So, let’s get started!

How can I learn Ir Conjugation?

Firstly, the best way to learn is to read the conjugation many times and trying to make some sentences with each conjugation (with each grammatical person).

Let’s start with present tense:

Yo voy a la escuela

vas al mercado

Él, Ella o Usted va al trabajo

Nosotros vamos a la fiesta

Ellos, Ellas o Ustedes van al aeropuerto

Here you can see that the difference with other verbs is that the infinitive form “IR” has nothing to do with “Voy” or “Vamos”. This irregularity are also present in other verbal tenses:

Preterit ImperfectPreterit Simple
Yoibafui
ibasfuiste
Él, Ella o Ustedibafue
Nosotrosíbamosfuimos
Ellos, Ellas, Ustedesibanfueron

Ir Regular Conjugations

Luckily, you have two regular conjugations for Ir verb:

ConditionalFuture
YoIríaIré
IríasIrás
Él, Ella o UstedIríaIrán
NosotrosIríamosIremos
Ellos, Ellas o UstedesIríanIrán
You can see the stem of the verb it’s the same than Infinitive Form: Ir

“Ir a” as a future tense

Also, the verb Ir works as a future with going to, as in English. So, if you need to express something you will do in the immediate future, you can form this sentence:

Hoy voy a comer a un restaurante italiano

You need to conjugate Ir verb, then add the preposition “a” (“to”) and then the infinitive form of the main verb (the verb that make the sense of the sentence).
