Now we’ll learn the irregular verbs in the conditional or “would” tense. The best part about these irregulars is that they’re the same exact irregulars as the “Future” or “Will” tense. The irregular “would” verbs use the same endings as the normal “would” verbs.

Let’s review those endings now:

ría

ríamos

rías

ríais

ría

rían


Let’s review those irregular verbs again. Remember, our goal is to provide enough practice so that these verbs and endings sound “natural” or “normal” to you.

decir

-

dir-

 

poner

-

pondr-

 

hacer

-

har-

poder             

-

podr-               

 

tener

-

tendr-

 

venir

-

vendr-

querer

-

querr-

 

valer

-

valdr-

 

haber

-

habr-

 

 

 

 

“valer” is a new verb that means “to be worth”

 

 

 

 

saber

-

sabr-

 

salir

-

saldr-

 

 

 

 


Now, so these verbs will start sounding natural to you, let’s practice the conjugations one at a time with each verb. Are you ready? First, we’ll use the “yo” conjugation. Do you remember what it ends with? …….if you said “é”, you are correct.

I would say

-

diría

 

I would put

-

pondría

 

I would do/make

-

haría

I would be able to

-

podría           

 

I would have

-

tendría

 

I would come

-

vendría

I would want to

-

querría

 

I would be worth

-

valdría

 

I would have

-

habría

I would know

-

sabría

 

I would leave

-

saldría

 

 

 

 


Now, I need to clarify something for a minute. When you say “I would want”, you say “Querría”, using the “would” or “conditional tense”. Now, to say “I used to want” using the “Back” or “Imperfect” tense, you would say “quería” with only one “r” like “querría” and “quería”. The way to tell the difference is the one with two “r”s means is a “would” verb, it’s pronounced “querría” with a trilled “r”, and it means “I would want” – remember, we added the “r” onto this ending. The one with one “r” is pronounced “quería”, it’s a “Back” verb and means, “I used to want”.

Now let’s move on to the “tú” conjugation. Do you remember what it ends with without looking at the chart?

You would say

dirías

You would put

pondrías

You would do/make

harías

You would be able to

podrías       

You would have

querrías

You would be worth

valdrías

You would have
(as in you would have eaten and so forth)

habrías

sabrías

You would leave

saldrías

 

 


Now onto the “Él, Ella, Ud.” Conjugation.
