Spanish ir verbs

spanish ir verbs

Spanish ir verbs, as you’ve seen before with conjugating ar and er verbs, follow a pattern. The Spanish ir verbs also have singular and plural pronouns to associate each verb conjugation.

Spanish ir verbs like ar and er verbs have the same singular endings. For instance, first person singular has o ending. Second person singular has es ending. Also, the third person singular has the e ending.

As you can see, whether you’re studying ir verbs or not, you can still follow the pattern of conjugation. On the other hand, Spanish ir verbs have different first and second person plural.

The first person plural has the imos ending and the second person plural has the is ending. The third person plural simply follows the en ending.
