    • Recognize statements about plans and future events which use the infinitive after ir + a

    The verb ir is used as a way to describe future plans when used in the following manner: ir + a + infinitive. It’s important to remember that you only need to conjugate ir in this kind of sentence. Another way of looking at it is the rule that after a preposition (like a), a verb will always be in the infinitive.
