How it Works
One of the most difficult parts of learning Spanish, especially for native English speakers, is remembering how to conjugate different verbs. In English in the present tense, most verbs don't change too much when the subject of a sentence changes, usually we just add a "s" to the end when the subject is he/she/it. For example, I speak, you speak, he/she speaks, we speak, they speak. In Spanish (and the other romance languages), however, the verbs change a lot. Here's the same example in Spanish: yo hablo, tu hablas, el/ella habla, nosotros hablamos, vosotros habláis, ellos/ellas hablan. Note how the underlined portions of each word change with each subject. This is called conjugation.
In Spanish, verbs are called either regular or irregular depending on whether they follow a standard pattern for conjugation. Regular verbs follow one of 3 patterns. Irregular verbs are called irregular because they do NOT follow a standard pattern for conjugation. This makes remembering them a pain!
(The 3 patters of regular verb conjugations, -AR, -ER, and -IR)
On this poster, you'll find the full, present tense conjugations of 41 of the most used irregular verbs. For every verb, the forms of the verb which are irregular are highlighted in red. You'll also find 49 of the most used regular verbs, including a key to each of the 3 standard patterns for conjugating them. We've also included 5 more irregular verbs which are typically used reflexively (as in English, when we do something to ourselves. E.g. To dress). Finally, you'll find 5 more full, present tense conjugations for verbs which are typically used in the 3rd person. For example, in Spanish, you don't say "I like it" but rather "A mi, me gusta" (to me, it pleases me).
Along with each Spanish verb, you'll also find the English translation and the participio, which combines with the Spanish verb Haber to form the past perfect tense (used to describe an experience or something from the recent past, for example "I have seen the movie" or "I have eaten dinner"). Finally, you'll find the gerundio used to describe actions in progress (E.g. "I am eating," or "we are playing").
Finally, the verbs on this poster are arranged to make remembering them as easy as possible. Many irregular verbs still follow the same or similar patterns. Verbs that follow similar patterns are placed together on the poster.
