Present Progressive Irregular — Spanish Verb Conjugation

As with all tenses, there are always irregulars and the doing verbs are no exception. The good thing is that the Spanish “doing verb” irregulars are a lot easier to learn.

As mentioned in the Present tense section, the best way to learn the irregulars is to go over and over them until they begin to “sound” right when they’re conjugated correctly. In other words, if you go over and over them, you’ll get to the point where you don’t have to think about them; they’ll come naturally to you. Let’s take a look at the irregulars:
This first group all add a “y”.

Creer becomes

Creyendo

Leer becomes

Leyendo

Ir becomes

Yendo

Destruir becomes

Destruyendo

Incluir becomes

Incluyendo

Oír becomes

Oyendo

Traer becomes

Trayendo

Caerse (a reflexive verb) becomes

Cayéndose



This next group of Spanish irregulars are stem changers and change from “o” to “u”.

Morir becomes

Muriendo

Dormir becomes

Durmiendo


This final group of irregulars are also stem changers and change from “e” to “i”.

Pedir becomes

Pidiendo

Seguir becomes

Siguiendo

Conseguir becomes

Consiguiendo

Repetir becomes

Repitiendo

Servir becomes

Sirviendo

Sentir becomes

Sintiendo

Preferir becomes

Prefiriendo

Requerir becomes

Requiriendo

Venir becomes

Viniendo

Decir becomes

Diciendo


And now a few reflexives in the same group:

Vestirse becomes

Vistiéndose

Despedirse becomes

Despidiéndose

Sentirse becomes

Sintiéndose

Divertirse becomes

Divirtiéndose


Before you go on to the Spanish practice session, there are a few new vocabulary words to go over. Here they are:

the book

el libro

sick

enfermo

The problem

El problema

The door

La puerta

The window

La ventana


As you go on to the practice session, watch for the irregular doing verbs. Remember, some are stem changers that go from “e” to “i”, some change from “o” to “u” and some add a “y”. Also, remember that as you listen to them over and over, they’ll start sounding more “natural” to you.
