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
Tú 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 Imperfect||Preterit Simple|
|Él, Ella o Usted||iba||fue|
|Ellos, Ellas, Ustedes||iban||fueron|
Ir Regular Conjugations
Luckily, you have two regular conjugations for Ir verb:
|Él, Ella o Usted||Iría||Irán|
|Ellos, Ellas o Ustedes||Irían||Irán|
“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).
