    • Recognize the correct conjugations of verbs that have irregularities in the yo form

    You have learned so far that there are some regular verbs that simply add the ending to suit their subject, other verbs with changes in the stem vowel, and other totally irregular verbs. In addition to these conjugations, there is a group of verbs that may be regular, irregular, stem changers *and* have an irregularity in their yo (first person singular) form.

    Vamos a ver cuáles son esos verbos…

    Tener (to have)
    ‘Yo’ and stem
    changer
    Hacer (to make/to do)
    Regular other than ‘yo’
    Salir (to leave, to go out)
    Regular other than ‘yo’
    Traer (to bring)
    Regular other than ‘yo’
    Venir (to come)
    ‘Yo’ and stem
    changer
    Valer (to be worth)
    Regular other than ‘yo’
    Poner (to put)
    Regular other than ‘yo’
    Seguir (to follow)
    ‘Yo’ and stem
    changer
    Decir (to say, to tell)
    ‘Yo’ and stem
    changer
    tengo hago salgo traigo vengo valgo pongo sigo digo
    tienes haces sales traes vienes vales pones sigues dices
    tiene hace sale trae viene vale pone sigue dice
    tenemos hacemos salimos traemos venimos valemos ponemos seguimos decimos
    tenéis hacéis salís traéis venís valéis ponéis seguís decís
    tienen hacen salen traen vienen valen ponen siguen dicen
    Oír (to hear)
    Irregular, has “y” in some forms because of three vowels together: “i” in the middle becomes a “y” sound, and an accent mark is needed at other times to separate the weak and strong vowels.
    Ver (to see)
    Regular other than ‘yo’, but note that accent mark is not needed for vosotros form, since it is one syllable.
    Dar (to give)
    Regular other than ‘yo’, but note that accent mark is not needed for vosotros form, since it is one syllable.
    oigo veo doy
    oyes ves das
    oye ve da
    oímos vemos damos
    oís veis dais
    oyen ven dan
