First we’ll see the “go go” verbs. We’ll call them “go go” verbs because the “yo” form ends with “g-o” or “go”.

                     (yo form – irregular)            (all other forms – regular)
The verb [tra][er]            changes to:   traigo               Tú traes (trae, traemos, traen)
The verb [hac][er]           changes to:   hago                Tú haces (hace, hacemos, hacen)
The verb [pon][er]          changes to:   pongo              Tú pones (pone, ponemos, ponen)
The verb [sal][ir]             changes to:   salgo                Tú sales (sale, salimos, salen)

The next set of verbs, in addition to being “go go” verbs also have stem changes. Again, as I mentioned before, the best way to learn them is to review them over and over again until they become second nature. Remember that the “nosotros” form and the “vosotros” form (used only in Spain) like to say regular.

                  (yo form – irregular)      (all other forms)          (Nosotros)
The verb [ven][ir]           changes to:   vengo        Tú vienes (viene, veinen)  venimos
The verb [ten][er]           changes to:   tengo         Tú tienes (tiene, tienen)     tenemos
The verb [dec][ir]           changes to:   digo           Tú dices (dice, dicen)        decimos

The final set of irregular verbs just changes in the “yo” form and otherwise are pretty regular.

                                       (yo form – irregular)            (all other forms)
The verb [escog][er]       changes to escojo                 Tú escoges (escoge, escogemos, escogen)
The verb [conoc][er]       changes to conozco              Tú conoces (conoce, conocemos, conocen)
The verb [sab][er]           changes to sé                        Tú sabes (sabe, sabemos, saben)
The verb [d][ar]              changes to doy                     Tú das (da, damos, dan)

The verb [est][ar de acuerdo]  changes to estoyde acuerdo   Tú estás de acuerdo (está, estamos, están)

In this section, you’ve learned many Spanish irregular verbs. If you try to memorize all of them right now, you’ll probably get overwhelmed. The best way to become familiar with them is to see and read aloud each one of them a few times over a few days so you can “tune your ear” to them. We recommend taking a brief break now to let the lessons sink in, then when you come back, we’ll go over these verbs so you can hear and see each one.
