In this lesson, we will learn about "ir" and "venir," two irregular verbs that mean "to go" and "to come," respectively. "Ir" is an extremely important verb because it can be used to talk about the future ("going to" do something). Our vocabulary will cover the seasons and some items of clothing.
In this lesson, we will look at two very important irregular verbs: Ir - to go Venir - to come
Going through the forms for 'ir': Yo voy Tú vas Él, ella o usted va Nosotros vamos Ellos, ellas o ustedes van
For venir: Yo vengo Tú vienes Él, ella o usted viene Nosotros venimos Ellos, ellas o ustedes vienen
Here are some examples of "ir" and "venir" in use.
Vienes a mi fiesta? Are you coming to my party? Yo voy a la fiesta. I'm going to the party. Usted viene a mi casa. You come to my house. Maria va por tí. Maria goes for you. Vamos a mi carro. Let's go to my car.
You can use 'ir' to talk about the future. For example in English, we say "I'm going to eat" or "I'm going to go."
In Spanish, the format is "ir" + 'a' + the infinitive form of the verb. As you recall, the infinitive is the -er, -ir, or -ar form of the verb.
For example, "Yo voy a comer con ella". I'm going to eat with her. "Tu vas a aprender mucho." You're going to learn a lot. "Ustedes van a ser amigos." You all are going to be friends.
